New Year's Plans, GOT THEM?!!

For the first time in Boston, the scene presents not one but TWO Salsa New Year's Parties!
1)    Sophia's:  SalsaBoston.com presents "Solamente Salsa" with DJ Nikolai, 9-3am!
          All Salsa All Night, "by Salseros for Salseros"!  $25 advance, More details below
         Tickets limited, Advance tickets at http://salsaboston.com/newyear
2)   Ryles: Temporada Latina at Ryles, with  DJ Antonio Ortiz  8pm-1am $20  More details below.
Want to go to both? or going to First Night? Check out the "afterparty" deal set up at Sophia's, only $10 after 12:30 with First Night Button or Ryles ticket stub ($15 without).
All the details:

1)  Sophia's

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

Mondo Sweetie at Fisrt Night

Peace, love and light to all of you during these darker, cold months from the MondoSweetie family. Hope your all hooking up with family and friends in the spirit of celebration. The band has been busy playing parties all over town and making merry with many new friends. We will be in town for one last public show this year, at the last possible moment in fact. If your in town, come down to the First Night Celebrations and party with us. We are doing two sets:
Mondo Sweetie

December 31st

Commonwealth Avenue, Boston (near the Commons)
6:30  & 7:45


You'll need a First Night button, but it's worth it. Boston Horns will be playing too at the Berkely Performance Center, and alot of great stuff going on. Hope to see you and give you all a hug.

Cariño, Patiño   Mik   Roderick   &  Yahuba
