Back by popular demand, we're doing another party at the Hyatt!

Saturday, February 11
Presidential Ballroom, Hyatt Regency - Cambridge
   brought to you by SalsaBoston and Edwin Pabon
Featuring Edwin Pabon & Orchestra and special surprises
This will be an ALL AGES event.  More details TBA!
Tickets go on sale later this week.

Salsa Wednesdays at An Tua Nua tonight as usual! www.salsaboston.com/antuanua  DJ D.Martinez in the house. This nasty windy weather is supposed to calm down late afternoon, so it should be a nice evening.  Lessons at 8pm and 9

We just scheduled this year's 6th Annual Salsa Habor Cruise Series!  Expanded from last year, we're starting a week earlier, and ending a week later.  Every Sunday plus July 4.  In a few weeks we'll have a flyer out for group bookings and the cruise website will be updated.  If you think your company or organization might want to book a group outing, now is the time to plan it.  One way is simply to take the flyer-to-be to your HR department or event planner and say "Hey, we should do this!"  If you're a coordinator of a social club or an event promoter, opportunities to partner with us for some cruises us are available.  Email olaf@salsaboston.com or call 617-513-9841  Last year's website: www.salsaboston.com/cruise

We're looking for an marketing intern or two to help us this spring.  The position carries some pay and some commission.  If you're interested in joining the team, send me a couple paragraphs about yourself and a resume of sorts if you have one handy.

Also, save the date, Sat. March 24 is the 7th annual Fiesta de Baile in Nahant, benefitting the North Shore Civic Ballet.  Stay tuned.

Mambo Mondays has moved to Hoffa's in Havard Square.  More Havana Club details in the mailbag.

See you on the dancefloor!

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

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, Fenway on the D, Kenmore on the B), plenty of street and lot parking.

Irish/America/Bar food available until 10pm.  I have eaten there regularly, it is very 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.
