Wharton SoCal Culture Club and ABLSoCal invite you to come out and celebrate AAPI Heritage Month with us at Mama Lion in Los Angeles!

Celebrate with Wharton Culture Club and ABL in the heart of LA's Koreatown at Mama Lion! 

Did you know:

- Los Angeles has the most Koreans of any major US city

- Koreatown is one of the densest neighborhoods in the United States and has the highest density of any community in LA County

- Ktown LA is home to several scenes from the hit Netflix show, Beef (we can point these out to you!)

- Mama Lion is one of the hottest night spots in Ktown

- Racial laws prohibited Koreans in LA from living beyond strict boundaries until the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965

Annual festivals include the Korean Festival & Parade on Olympic Boulevard, with a march to the Seoul Peace Park, and the KTOWN Nights foodtruck festival in the summer
