Okay, Salseros!  Advance Tickets are "flying off the shelf" for this Saturday's Fall Salsa Gala #2 at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge!  Looks like much better weather than last month's *deluge*, and certainly everyone likes the idea of a classy party at in the hotel's Presedential Ballroom.  If you haven't heard about it yet, check out all the details at www.salsaboston.com/fallgala, or read about it in the mailbag.  Dress to impress! 
Tickets: www.salsaboston.com/store or in person if you see me around b4 then.  Save $5 adv.

Also this weekend, the monthly Salsa Cubana at Ryles this Friday.  I stopped by there last month, and it was a great party!  A little different style than we're all used to.  Check it out.  More in the mailbag.

Saturday as well, Havana Club is opening a Latin night at Hoffa's.  I'm told it's more of a mixed genre lounging scene than hard core dance, but should be fun. http://havanaclubsalsa.com/havana_saturdays.shtml

Finally, next Wednesday is SalsaBoston's Wednesday Salsa Night 5th Anniversary Party at An Tua Nua!  Proud to be the second oldest Salsa night in the area, I invite you to come celebrate with us!  It's also the Thanksgiving holiday eve for you otherwise early-to-work folks.  www.salsaboston.com/antuanua

Don't forget to join us on Sundays as well at Mojitos, www.salsaboston.com/mojitosundays

Lots mo' stuff in the mailbag.

See you Saturday!

* 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.

Ladies and Gentlemen!

You've been asking for Saturday Salsa for a long time, and here is another great opportunity.  SalsaBoston with DJ D. Martinez and DJ Hernan bring you "Dile", Boston's hot new Aftro-Cuban Band, featured recently at the 5th Annual Boston Salsa Congress and the wonderful time at the Fall Salsa Gala #1.  To put it mildly, these guys Rock!  Featuring 10+ talented musicians directed by Juan Chavez, with a repertoire of superbly dancable music.

We cordially invite you to join us for this Fall Salsa Gala #2.  This will be an elegant evening, plenty of dance space, some good eats, excellent music, great atmosphere, at the Cambridge Hyatt Regency's Grand Ballroom decorated SalsaBoston-style!  We expect about 400 salseros and live music lovers, there to dance and enjoy the musical performance.

Please reserve your tickets online early!  Not only do you save some precious salsa dollars, but the more people we know are coming early, the better we can make the party for you.  Please invite your beginner dance friends, and even family/friends who may not want to dance but would enjoy the fabulous live music.
