Club Vertigo, Fridays.  Grand Opening last week--yes it was packed, yes it was jamming, yes it was styling!  Need we say more?  If you've been looking for a Latin night since Sophia's closed, come check it out.  DJ Guy and DJ Ricardo spin the best of Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Reggaeton, Latin House, and more.  2 floors. Downtown, right near Quincy Market.
   *** RSVP for your $5 discount! (b4 11pm)  www.salsaboston.com/vertigo or scroll down.

For you Salsa purists on Fridays, be sure to check out Havana Club's Friday Salsa party in Cambridge (see mailbag for details).

THIS Saturday the Salsa action is at Fiesta de Baile, "One of the best Salsa parties of the year", at the Nahant Country Club, benefitting salsera Paula Shiff's North Shore Civic Ballet.  I'm told about 210 tickets are already sold, so it should be a raging party once again.  Featuring DJ Antonio Ortiz.  More in the mailbag or visit

Coming Sundays in April at Club Q (Fanueil Hall): "Salsa for Gringos" is back! 8-9:30p at Club Q, before their new Salsa/Latin night opening April 3.  www.salsaboston.com/clubq

Coming soon: 5th Annual Salsa Harbor Cruise Series!  Starts Sundays, mid-June.  Book your group reservations now!  Let your HR department know so they can plan a company outing. Season 5, every Sunday this summer starting mid-June.  We are currently scheduling corporate and group reservations, so let your people know.  Season tickets will go on sale in April.  www.salsaboston.com/cruise05  July 4th will be a cruise as well.

(Personal note: if anyone is interested in a used hybrid Toyota Prius, drop me a line.  Great car, hard to get, great gas mileage.)

An Tua Nua is a great contemporary Irish bar & grill on Beacon Street just outside of Kenmore Square (only about 3 blocks from Sophia's).  In the back they have a dance club about the same size as the upstairs at Sophia's, with a sizable dance floor that holds about 150 people, a bar, and plenty of lounge seating. 

Close to the green line (St. Mary's on the C train), plenty of street and lot parking.

Irish/America/Bar food available until 10pm.  I have eaten there, it is tasty and modestly priced.

Note: they have Karaoke with my man Kev MacDaddy in the front portion of the bar when you walk in, but don't let that scare you... Salsa is in the back room!  Full Bar.  Please check your coat.

Dear Salseros,
Juliana and I would like to thank you all for the overwhelming support
this past Friday night. 

We had more people at Friday's party than we had at the opening, and
the quality of the party is getting better and better. Going forward, we
will have hors d'eouvres and cake every week. And I've just picked
up a digital camera, so in a week or two you can expect to start seeing
pictures of our parties online at: http://www.HavanaClubSalsa.com 
(And please keep those suggestions coming!)

Also, we are going to make a special effort to make sure that people
taking the beginner lessons get the training and dancing they need
to have a good time and improve their skills. We know how difficult
learning salsa can be, and we will make it easier, more fun, and give
beginners more resources. More on this next week.

This week's performance is a surprise by a group making their Boston
debut with brand new material never performed until this week.
I think everyone will be as pleased as I am that this group chose to
highlight their hard work at our very own Havana Club. If you want to
see an amazing and original performance, this week's surprise salsa
performance is for you!
