ORIENTED.COM - Not your average Happy Hour...

Happy Hours usually guarantee good drink specials, but conversations at the bar can be hit or miss. It's a good night if there's an exchange of one's "personal digits". But what are you really left with at the end of the night besides the old cliches? Now here to redefine the term "Happy Hour" in Kaohsiung is ORIENTED.com. ORIENTED is a community-based organization for English speaking residents, newcomers and visitors of Kaohsiung alike. ORIENTED.com began as ORIENTED.org in 1998 as a not-for-profit, volunteer, online resource for Taiwan's English speaking community - including message boards and discussion forums on topics ranging from apartment hunting to work visa issues. The key to getting "oriented" in your community is finding a core group of friends. In 2002, the ORIENTED Happy Hours began in Taipei and Shanghai - now they run in over fourteen different locations around the world including: Beijing, Sydney, Toronto, Los Angeles, Tokyo and New York. ORIENTED Happy Hours began in Kaohsiung in May 2005. They are held on the last Thursday of the month at various local establishments.
