Well, the ol' Red Sox Nation moves into post season, and the party at An Tua Nua tonight no doubt will be filled by some anxious sports fan/salseros, so come join the party!  Plenty of TV's.  The game is _away_, so parking should be easy.  Also, if you haven't, try some of the buffalo wing drumsticks they serve, 25 cents each.  Yum!  Kitchen's open 'til 10.

*** THIS SUNDAY IS A HOLIDAY NIGHT (Columbus Day Monday)
Now every SUNDAY, SalsaBoston brings you Salsa at Mojitos!  Similar in format to Wednesdays at An Tua Nua, it features DJ D. Martinez and DJ Hernan.  Lesson at 8:30, dancing until closing.  This event will be upstairs on the beautiful dancefloor, and will feature SalsaBoston's ALL SALSA format (_not_ a mix of Salsa and Latin).  Join us!  RSVP for $2 off the cover. THIS EVENT IS 19+ (guys and ladies) www.salsaboston.com/mojitosundays

If you missed the Congress or if you enjoyed it but didn't make it to the congress shop, the DVD will be out by mid October at the latest and probably sooner, and also Congress embroidered shirts (mens and ladies), caps, and hand towels are available.  We still have a lot of things to pay for this year, so every purchase helps out.  Shirts and the video are $20 each, and the caps and towels $10.  Buy any two and you get $5 off, so the video and a shirt would be $35. www.salsaboston.com/congress/shop  We'll also have everything for sale at An Tua Nua tonight.

Three Workshops coming up:
- This Saturday, Salsa y Control's EXTRAVAGANZA (see mailbag below)
- Next Monday, MIT Casino Rueda
- Sat. Oct 22: Intensive, 3-hour, Footwork to the Music Choreography Workshop with Ana and Joel Massicot, Saturday, October 22nd, 12:00-3:00pm, Dance Complex http://www.masacoteentertainment.com/workshop/footwork.html or see mailbag below.

And..... try out your new skills:

         Fall Salsa Bash #1, featuring "Dile"

Saturday, October 22, Knights of Columbus Hall, Charlestown SalsaBoston and Dile present: "Dile" is Boston's hottest new Salsa Band which debuted live at the Boston Salsa Congress.  We'll have LIVE HOT Salsa all night, plus a special workshop and some extra surprises. The party is at the Knights of Columbus in Charlestown, plenty of free parking, next to the T, and nearby (and ya'll know we will fix the place up for some good atmosphere!).  We expect about 400+ there.  All ages as well.  It will be a fantastic Salsa night! Tickets and details will be available online next week and from various outlets.

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.

The Mojitos House band is made up of the area's most talented musicians (including Pablo Bencid and Leo Blanco) who have joined together to play an uptempo lineup of Salsa to dance to.

Now with Lessons by Dan Marshall, 9-10:30

Big news: effective last week, Havana Thursdays will move from Mantra to Bar 33. Why the move? First, we can start the evening earlier (salsa lesson at 9:30, salsa dance party at 10:15). Second, we can have greater consistency every week. (No half-Persian nights... No Reggaeton until 1am.) I really loved the space at Mantra - and we had some great times and met lots of cool new people there - but moving the party to upstairs at Bar 33 will make it a lot better.

    * 10:15pm-2am Salsa Dance Party w/ DJ Cuban Jeff

Please come out and support "Back Bay Salsa" - and meet cool new people - this Thursday!

This week's other quick notes:
