Before there were blogs, there was actual magazines. (You know, magazines? Printed on paper? That you old in your hands and turn the pages?) Hyphen Magazine is one such magazine catered to the Asian American community, and the fact that it’s an independent, non-profit magazine that is still around while the economy has tanked and other Asian American magazines are in deep financial trouble is a testament on what a great magazine it is.
And if you’re in San Francisco tonight, you are invited to Hyphen Magazine’s SIX in the City Party in honor of their sixth anniversary. It’s even at San Francisco’s Club Six, located in San Francisco’s kinda shady Sixth Street. (We’d make a 6/6/6 joke, but there’s nothing evil or satanic about the party. Unless you want it to be, of course.) The party starts at 9pm, with a $10 cover (or $20, if you’d also like to purchase a magazine subscription. Highly recommended, especially if you’d like to read quality writing about Asian American topics that run circles around blogs like ours.) You can RSVP via Facebook as well.
