A.R.S. is a social outing group based in Philadelphia whose Asian American members enjoy sight-seeing, taking snapshots, videotaping, and picnics. The group’s focus is on museums, restaurants with quirky themes, very large sandwiches, street performers, historical attractions, people who dress up like Benjamin Franklin, tripe carts (only a few members like this), old forts, living statues, and other such cultural destinations. Inspired by President Al Gore, A.R.S. is currently presenting a multiple-media slide show to whoever will watch/listen.
