In the spirit of unity and cultural celebration, our team at Accountability recently hosted a memorable event to honor AAPI Heritage Month. This vibrant celebration took place at Kalye NYC, where we gathered with friends and partners from Wieden+Kennedy, Crossmedia, and Excel Sports Management. The highlight of the evening was an authentic and spirited “boodle fight,” a traditional Filipino feast that encapsulates the essence of community and shared joy.

AAPI Heritage Month: A Time for Reflection and Celebration

AAPI Heritage Month is a special time to recognize and appreciate the rich cultural contributions of Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. It’s a month dedicated to celebrating the diverse traditions, histories, and achievements that have significantly shaped our society. At Accountability, we believe in the power of diversity and the importance of fostering an inclusive environment that celebrates all cultures.

The Boodle Fight Experience

The term “boodle fight” might sound combative, but it’s anything but! Originating from the Filipino military, this communal feast involves a spread of delicious food laid out on banana leaves, with everyone eating together using their hands. It symbolizes camaraderie, equality, and the breaking down of barriers, making it a perfect metaphor for our celebration.

At Kalye NYC, the tables were adorned with an array of Filipino delicacies, including grilled meats, seafood, rice, and tropical fruits, all artfully arranged on banana leaves. The atmosphere was vibrant, filled with laughter and the sounds of lively conversations as colleagues and friends came together to enjoy the feast.

A Night of Cultural Exchange and Networking

The event wasn’t just about the food; it was an evening of cultural exchange and networking. Our guests from Wieden+Kennedy, Crossmedia, and Excel Sports Management brought their own unique perspectives, enriching the experience for everyone involved. This gathering provided a wonderful opportunity to strengthen professional relationships and build new connections within our industry.

Our boodle fight at Kalye NYC was a resounding success, leaving everyone with full hearts and even fuller stomachs.
