Our February Mixer was a huge success! What a great way to kickoff to a new year with KASH! 2019 has much in store for our members, and we’re excited to embark on another year in our community! A huge thank you to the 40+ people who came out to the mixer – including members of the Filipino Young Professionals and the NA Asian American Professionals. Food and karaoke rooms were generously provided by Izakaya Hi. Izakaya Hi is a new small plate restaurant located near the Energy Corridor. If you have not had a chance – stop by and check it out! From the delicious food to the great conversation, the mixer – which started at 7PM – lasted until well after midnight. It was such a blast, no one wanted to leave! Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for details on all our upcoming 2019 events.
