Subject: Salsa Update #120: New Year's Plans!


Hola Salseros! 

Some exciting news coming up for the Holidaze!  Boston is having not
one, but TWO New Years Eve Parties this year!

#1:

Sophia's has asked me at the last minute to host a SalsaBoston.com night
with them, featuring All Salsa, the finest dancing, and the great
ambiance of the Champagne Lounge!  Now many of you have expressed
concerns in the past of the crowds there, but FEAR NOT!  We will be
*limiting* the capacity to accomodate dancing! Additionally, and this is
tentative, the ground floor level will be cleared and open for even more
Salsa!  Upstairs will be a private party (email me to inquire).

Tickets for this great event will only be $25 in advance!  Try to get
into another big party somewhere for that!  And at that, Sophia's has
acquired a waiver to stay open until AT LEAST 3AM on New Years!  So
don't miss it!  For that matter, if you're going to First Night or
somewhere else for part of the evening, that leaves plenty of time to
come by afterwords, in fact there's a special deal being offered (see
below).

Advance Ticket Purchase online at http://salsaboston.com/newyear

Here is all the 411:

SalsaBoston.com and Sophia's Present:

plan to make full use of all the multimedia equipment, and guarantee
to provide you with a great Latin dance learning environment, and with
great music and videos to dance to.  I recently added newer music to

supplement the classical Latin selections I've played in the past.  On
top of that, you will enjoy the only Latin dance club in Boston that
