Hug an Asian Day

'Hug an Asian Day' in Chicago

Asians & Friends Chicago ( are planning a "Hug an Asian Day" ethnic dress-and-outfit pub crawl for Sat. May 11 at 7 p.m. It'll start at Bonsai Bar, 3503 N. Halsted in Chicago and make its way through the area's Boystown bars. The event is designed to market the organization and to celebrate the city's Asian Pacific Islander month. Organizers say last year's event was successful in drawing attention to the group and helping members socialize among other bar patrons.
