Tonight, SalsaBoston celebrates the 5th anniversary of Salsa Wednesdays!  With 4+ years at Sophia's, and almost a year now at An Tua Nua, the whole crew is delighted to be behind Boston's second oldest Salsa Night, and the original "All Salsa by Salseros for Salseros" establishment.  Come celebrate with us tonight!  Special $12 cover on this holiday, lessons free.  Surprises as well.  www.salsaboston.com/antuanua

ALSO!  Did you make it to the Fall Gala #2 at the Hyatt Regency?  About 350 Salseros of all ages were there from all over New England, including a lot of new faces.  The party was such a good time and everyone loved the place, so guess what, we're doing it AGAIN! 
Yes, Save the Date:

*** Saturday December 17, SalsaBoston's Holiday Party ***

Cambridge Hyatt Regency Hotel
Details TBA
In the meantime, check out photos at djdmartinez.com http://www.bostonwebteam.com/djd/gallery.asp?categoryid=137

This holiday weekend notes:

Wed: 5th Anniversary Party, An Tua Nua
Thur: Ryles closed, Masa closed
Fri/Sat: Mojitos is open, Havana Club is open I think
Sun: SalsaBoston at Mojitos www.salsaboston.com/mojitosundays

For those looking for some non-salsa tonight, I can recommend this one:  Jet Set Events is hosting the "Wild Turkey Party" at High Bar.  $20 advance tickets, includes all complementary drinks, food, and much more.  A very upscale crowd, slightly "older" (30's and 40's mostly).  Details on the SalsaBoston home page and tickets online.  www.salsaboston.com

See you tonight at An Tua Nua!

In this issue:

>> Salsa Briefs:
- For the casual: salsa at Masa, Thursdays
- Congress DVD's for sale

>> SalsaBoston Events:

>> This Week's Mailbag (see below)

Salsa Briefs:

* Have you checked out Masa?  If you're up for a casual night and some dining and an upscale bar, this place is cool on Thursdays.  Casual lesson around 10pm, a mix of music, no cover.  439 Trement St, South End, Boston

* 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.

Latino Motion workshop is back 2 days only:  Tuesday Dec 6th and Dec 13th at 8pm - Dance Complex.

In these classes we are going to be working on isolating and then combining the move of different parts of the body: shoulders, hips, torso... to improve your dance skills not only for Latino Dancing but for many other dances.  Salsa Merengue and Bachata, among others, are Latino rhythms. For us, Latinos, the way you move is probably the most important component of your dance. Learn to dance with "SABORRRRR", adding movements to other parts of you body besides your feet and hands: hips, torso, shoulders, pelvis and butt. All of them, nicely combined, can make a huge difference when you jump to the dance floor. So what do you think?? Do you want to try it out and see how much you can improve?? Even if you don't take your dance that seriously, come over and join us, we guarantee you will have a lot of fun and, you will find lost parts of your body.

Boston's newest and hottest salsa band, OBBINI TUMBAO, will return to the Regattabar on Tuesday, November 29th, at 7:30pm, as part of the club's Latin Beat Tuesdays series. Founders, Rebecca Cline on piano and Ana Norgaard on percussion, will lead an outstanding ensemble comprised of the areas best performers: Manolo Mairena on lead vocals and percussion, Angel Subero on trombone, Luis Gemelo on baby bass, and Gregorio Vento on percussion.
The music of Obbini Tumbao blends folkloric and popular Cuban music with North American jazz to create a body of work whose infectious rhythms will make you want to get up and dance. Cline, from Athens, Georgia, and Norgaard, from Caracas, Venezuela, join forces to produce a compelling new repertoire that incorporates the wide range of musical influences they share. The sextet will play a broad selection of beloved dance classics, as well as the band's own compositions.
