A few reminders if you've forgotten:

1) Going to the LA Salsa Congress?  Or thinking about it?  In order to
get the Boston Price you MUST email me before Feb. 15.  Even if you are
considering going, please email me ASAP.  See latest info below.

2) SAVE THE DATE!  Saturday Feb. 16, Edwin Pabon presents another Salsa
Night at Knights of Columbus.  Tickets available online soon!  Featuring
SANTO RICO DANCE CO.  Live from New York!
Workshops beforehand.

Have you been to SalsaBoston Night Sophia's on Wednesdays lately?  It's
been the happening spot the last few weeks!  Thanks to all who have made
it such a great place to dance.  If you haven't been there in a while,
you're missing out!  (RUMOR: a little mouse told me there's talk of
expanding to a second floor if it keeps up...)

It's funny, just the other day I was talking to yet ANOTHER person who
had been to Sophia's once and didn't like it too much.  So I asked her
what night she'd gone and she said "Saturday".  Like HELLO!  Which part
of "Salsa Night is on Wednesdays" isn't clear?  I guess she hasn't been
reading my editorials...

By the way, not that I'm against Satruday night at Sophia's, but it's
not SALSA NIGHT, not everyone's cup 'o tea as they say.


Anyway, all the details in case you're still not clear:

This and every Wednesday...
