Congreso folks!Volunteer wrap-up/holiday brunch next week tentatively (Sat. Dec. 14)
Details TBA.Email to
firstname.lastname@example.org if you aren't on the volunteer list.
Question of the
week:Should I be flattered that there
is a certain segment out there that incessantly tries to hack, imitate, copy,
slander, skew and/or otherwise defame or sections of SalsaBoston?Come on guys, CEASE!Especially those of you on mindspring.
(Well, at least it's
entertaining.The funniest one was Mr.
E.M. who said on the message board once, "you'll
never catch me 'cause I know computers...")
Seriously though, I'm not
interested in "Salsa Politics" like it exists in many cities.There are plenty of websites and stuff around
now and the more power to the people that started them, but please don't stoop
so low as to feel the incessant need to make a name for yourself through this
sort of thing, on my site or anyone else's.We don't need that in Boston.Go somewhere
pontification...on to the FUN!!
Highlights this weekend
- Vincent's tonight,
various birthday celebrations
- Last night of El Bembe for the season tonight
- Sunday: La Mega 4th anniv. Party with EL Canario Jose
The "SalseraLoca" herself has asked me to let you all know,
and Kristie is also continuing her annual celebrations.Don't miss it tonight!Vincent's is off I93 Exit 5A, in Randolph, about 20 minutes south of downtown.$10 cover, last I heard ladies free before (don't show up at with expectations...)Should be a good showing of Salseros.
