Yesterday evening, I had the chance to enjoy $3 cocktails, deliciously beautiful dumplings plates, and awesome music at a charity event at Ten Tigers Parlour in DC’s Georgia-Petworth neighborhood. Good drinks, chill AAPI-inspired music vibes by DJ Pinstripe Rebel, and an amazing selection of art from Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) artists really characterized the theme of the SAMASAMA Art Show and Gathering. Samasama is Tagalog/Filipino for “you are welcome”, “all together”, and “united”. The name was fitting for both the venue and the charity event, as Ten Tigers brought together a variety of cultures and people under one roof over a shared love for food, music and art. I happily enjoyed spicy dumpling plates while swaying to Bollywood tunes and admiring the variety of art pieces by Filipino-American artists throughout the night. I’ll definitely keep Ten Tigers in mind as the spot to check out throughout the summer!
