Yes, that's right, we're giving away cash prizes tonight in a little "Salsa Family" contest we've devised for you:

- Prizes: $60 cash prize and 6 free admissions to ATN on Wednesdays for both the top lady and guy
- Time: 10:30-12:15
- Object: Dance with as many people as you can
- Winners: lady and guy who dance with the most different people
- How?  When you dance with someone, they'll give you their unique sticker and you put it on your sheet.  When you come in we'll hand you both.  It's free!
- Do you have to actually dance?  You should, but we can't keep tabs...  But you do have to convince the other person to give you their sticker!

Prizes awarded at 12:30.  You must be present to win!


The new hotspot!  Cabana Mondays at Felt!  Salseros, come check it out.  It's a classy, fabulous place, no cover, charming staff (big shoutout to Farah and Vanessa of Felt!), and of course Boston's finest Salsa as always from D.Martinez and Hernan.  Salsa for Gringos lesson at 7pm for the newbies--send your non-dancing friends over in advance.  Come help make this party happen!  Lots of special nights coming up over there as well.

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.
