alumNIGHTS: Summer Series Soirée and Mahjong Party

Usher in the best season of the year with our Summer Series kickoff celebration at the Chinatown Storytelling Centre! With the Vancouver Chinatown Foundation and its esteemed chair Carol Lee (BCom’81) as host, we’re concocting an unforgettable soirée filled with games, storytelling, and mixing and mingling. Tour the Storytelling Centre’s exhibits, snap a photo in their recreation of an early 20th-century studio, and learn how to play mahjong from the UBC Mahjong Club. Plus, enjoy a savoury selection of light bites; a glass of beautiful wine from one of our alumni UBC Wine Club members; and a signature cocktail (see recipe below) crafted by bartender Nathan Moran from Laowei, Chinatown’s award-winning bar and lounge. Immerse yourself in this eclectic evening of activities for a spectacular start to summer!
