    Experience an Asian night market at the museum produced by “Top Chef” contestant Tu David Phu. Phu has been creating these Chef’s Hawker Centre pop-ups, which he calls “platforms to celebrate Asian American culture through food,” around the country as a way to bring people together and find commonalities. For this pop-up, we’re coming together for a night filled with bold creative, cuisine by Bay Area chefs, innovative beverages and music by guest DJs Anne-Mary Pham and Jonathan Reyes. Your ticket includes unlimited access to food booths and two drink tickets to try specially crafted cocktails by guest mixologists Kevin Diedrich of Pacific Cocktail Haven and Jack Daniels Cocktail Champ Adam Brogan. Participating chefs include Francis Ang (Pinoy Heritage), Jason Angeles (Frozen Kuhsterd), Reem Assil (Reem’s California), Richgail Enriquez (Astig Vegan), Deuki Hong (Sunday at the Museum), Jake Rosenbush (Hardwood Bar & Smokery), Hanif Sadr (Komaaj), and Nite Yun (Nyum Bai).  

    VIP access includes early entry at 6 p.m. as well as a special bite crafted by Phu, and a wine bar sponsored by Silver Oak. Limited tickets available for the VIP lounge.
