Subject: #293: Happy SalsaEasterTax Weekend!

Hola Salseros!

...and Marathon Monday/Patriot's Day too!  Good luck to all you SalsaMarathoners out there!  I was going to run myself, but on I'm the fence.

However, there is a chance that we may host another special Easter edition of Salsa Night at An Tua Nua this Easter Sunday since Monday is a holiday for many.  It will get decided at An Tua Nua tonight, so stay tuned for that announcement tomorrow.  In the meantime, Happy Easter! 

... and see you tonight at ATN! http://salsaboston.com/antuanua

Have you registered for Ana and Joel's Masacote CD release weekend bash coming up in May?  It's practically a Salsa Congress in and of itself.  May 12-14 at Springstep and the Hyatt.  $40 for the whole weekend.  Check out the details in the mail bag.

"El Bembe" this Friday incidentally.  See mailbag for details.

Finally, the website poll on whether to have instructor an DJ reviews, much like there are club reviews, is 2:1 in favor right now.  Please keep the votes coming, and particularly send me any comments or suggestions, or post them on the message board.

Oh, Group harbor cruise bookings for the summer are coming in steadily.  Please contact me asap if you're interested so we can get you set.  We will be in contact with you next week if you  have already asked for more details.

* 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

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.
