Holiday Scoop 2013 is coming…Dec. 5!

On behalf of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) and the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) we’d like to invite you and your newsroom to the annual Holiday Scoop, the biggest journalist party in the city!

The event draws more journalists than any other party in Seattle. And it does it for a good cause: to raise money for scholarships for those aspiring to be journalists.

The Holiday Scoop started in 2010. Our fourth annual party will bring together print, digital, television, visual and radio journalists of all ages. Let’s celebrate the holidays and another year of great journalism in Washington State.

Dim Sum Saturday

Dim Sum Saturday

Sorry about the late notice, everyone. We’re going to squeeze in one more Dim Sum Saturday event before the holiday season at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 26.

Enjoy breakfast with chapter president, Mai Hoang, who will be here all the way from Yakima, and with other AAJA members.

If you haven’t been to an event recently, dim sum is a great and easy way to reconnect. The more, the merrier — friends, co-workers, former co-workers, significant others and kids more than welcome.

We’re meeting at at New Hong Kong (it used to be known as New Kowloon), 900 South Jackson Street, Seattle, WA 98104, in the International District.

We’ll all split the check. Dim sum typically runs about $10-$15 per person.

Please RSVP on the Facebook invitation so we can keep a rough headcount and know how big of a table to reserve. Hope to see you there!
