Subject: #258: Harbor cruises are officially hopping. Order your July 4 tix now

Hola Salseros!

The first cruise of the season went off without a hitch last Sunday, though mother nature could have given us a slightly warmer night.  But a good time was had by all.  This Sunday should be much better!  Plus, the afterparty at Sanctuary was a hit.  We will be opening a regular night there in the next few weeks, concurrent with the cruises, so look for details about that.

*** July 4 is coming up! *** and there will be a fireworks salsa cruise. 8:30-11 (after the fireworks), lesson as usual at the dock and food, and afterparty at Sanctuary.  This cruise sold out last year and there was another similar cruise at the other end of the dock, though not this year, so book right now.  Only $30 advance, $45 at the dock  www.salsaboston.com/store  617-513-9841

Tonight we'll be at An Tua Nua again, no baseball Wed. nights again until September!  So come dance on our new floor, lessons at 8 (casino rueda) and 9 (salsa), dance until 1am. www.salsaboston.com/antuanua

What else, Vertigo is a happening spot!  Friday nights.  The salseros are showing up early, "salsa for gringos" lesson at 9:30, and the salsa has been going later and later, especially upstairs.  www.salsaboston.com/vertigo  Pix from the last week are up, but the thumbnail software is broke, sorry!  You can still see the full size pictures.

Ana Tinajero is teaching an "Intensive Ladies' Styling Workshop" on Sat. July 9, 3-6pm.  She's amongst the best, ladies, so check it out! www.masacoteentertainment.com/workshop/anaworkshop.html or see mailbag

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.

This is the longest running salsa night with dance lessons in the area.
It began on June 20, 1996! Please join us as we celebrate the end of
nine wonderful years and the start of our 10th!

We will be celebrating with excellent salsa dancing by you, fantastic
salsa music delivered by DJ Latino (Antonio Ortiz), and lots of cake!

Please help spread the word to some of the people whose faces we
