that's neaat! hay qua mini-fest this saturday

I posted something about this a few weeks back, but I thought I'd throw out a reminder that "Hay Qua!" Mini-Fest is happening this Saturday, June 27 at The Bitter End in New York, with an impressive roster of passionate creative thinkers/performers.

The event is a mini-fest of inspirational talks, works, and performances from the nation's most innovative Vietnamese Americans. A room full of up and coming fashion designers, chefs, architects, photographers, bloggers, and film directors, among others.

And if that's not enough to get in the door, maybe a Vietnamese sandwich will do it. The Hay Qua organizers recently announced that some of New York's top banh mi creators will be on hand for you to sample their tasty masterpieces. Yes, you want this:
