Hola Salseros!

See you at An Tua Nua tonight.  Wanda's birthday party is actually *tonight* (not last week as I announced then) so it should be an "extra-fun" evening...!

If you're waiting for cruise details and such from us, please hang on.  It'll be updated/sent out by this weekend!

--

Just 1.5 short months until the cruise season begins!  Tentatively the first cruise will be on June 10th, and then every Sunday through mid-September, plus July 4th as always!

Last year's site is still accurate, though the days of the month are wrong.  That will be updated very soon.

Now is the time to start planning a group outing!  Do you work for a company?  Consider asking them to sponsor a night at the cruises!  Many companies have funds set aside for funding fun things for their employees.  Send me a note and I'll fwd you our group outings letter to give to your HR department.  olaf@salsaboston.com  Private charters are available too.

Also, if you're a promoter or are looking for some a great marketing internship opportunities with the cruises, contact me as well.

Lastly, we are looking for cruise sponsors.  If your firm is looking to market to a diverse latin-oriented community this summer, this year's sixteen-cruise series is the perfect opportunity for some great exposure.

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.

Boston's best Latin music and dance party is proud to present:
 El Bembe Brasileiro Friday, April 27, 2007

Join us for El Bembe Brasileiro
Learn new steps and enjoy new musical styles including Samba and Forro!
El Bembe Brasileiro will also feature live music by Aguido!
DJ will spin Brazilian dance music as well as Salsa and Merengue favorites adding to this unique cultural experience. 
9:00 p.m. Complimentary Dance Lesson by Glenio Oliveira
10:00 p.m. - 1:30 a.m. Dance Party and Live Performance

El Bembe now offers a more diverse, cultural experience!  No longer exclusively Salsa and Merengue, El Bembe is dedicated to providing a wider scope of cultural music and dance of Latin America, exposing dancers, artists, and music lovers to a larger range of styles and rhythms.

EL BEMBE, a fixture in Boston's Salsa movement since 1999, caters to a diverse audience ranging from Latin music and dance enthusiasts to beginner, advanced, and professional Latin dancers. Perhaps the most unique characteristic of EL BEMBE is that all proceeds from the event are re-invested into the CLA's arts programs; therefore, patrons not only enjoy a unique celebration, but they also contribute to the cultural life of the city of Boston.

Admission and PARKING INFORMATION:
Admission: $15 (21 years and over only)
El Bembe is held in Boston's South End at the Jorge Hernandez Cultural Center
