Hola Salseros!

Okay gang, this next item is a **MUST ATTEND** evening in Providence, a week from Friday!  Mark your calendar and buy your ticket now from their website.  This event is co-organized by Jeannie Oki, of Strictly Salsa Sundays in Providence.

*** Hot SHOw at the Rhodes ***  (SHO=Spanish Harlem Orchestra) Friday, November 11, Providence Waterfire along with Strictly Salsa presents Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Live, at the historic and fabulous "Rhodes on the Pawtuxet" ballroom in Providence (Cranston actually, just south of Downtown). This dance concert benefits Waterfire, the hosts of the annual free Salsa event every summer in Providence which many Boston Salseros attend. Regular admission tickets are a modest $25. An event not to be missed!  Go to the website for more details. http://salsaboston.com/waterfire/ Performances by Hacha, Salsa Y Control, and more.  See you all there!

Also, last update I announced the tentative opening of Saturdays at Cosmo's downtown.  Unfortunately the management had a change of heart so that's not going to work out.   BUT!!!  That's fortunate actually, because I found an even better place right around the corner.  Stay tuned for that one!  This place is *cool*.
If you haven't yet, please check out the survey: http://salsaboston.com/surveyoffice100/survey.cgi?survey=SaturdaySalsa
Thanks for your input!  The response has been tremendous.

Lastly, the congress DVD has been slightly delayed for those that ordered, but they should be out in a week or two it looks like.

See you all at An Tua Nua tonight!  www.salsaboston.com/antuanua Don't forget to join us on Sundays as well at Mojitos, 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 November 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.

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-Mac Daddy 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.
