Just one short month 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.

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.

MIT Salsa Club is still looking for a couple more volunteers for this year's social. 

The 2nd Annual MIT Salsa Social is Saturday, May 19 in the
Sala de Puerto Rico room of Stratton Student Center.

MIT Salsa Club is hosting an evening of dancing and performances from local dance companies. 

We're going to need your support.  If you can volunteer at
this year's event, please email Chris at vegas76@yahoo.com.

Like last year, all volunteers will only work between 30 minutes to an hour.  In other words, volunteering to help out will be like taking a short break from the dance floor to help the club.  You'll also get into the event for free!
