While we make every effort to keep the price affordable, unfortunately this year there is a $2 per passenger fuel surcharge to make up for the high price of gasoline.  However, we got them to give us a bit more time on the water this year to make up for it.

Also, do you work for a company?  Have them set up a group outing for you, and they might even pay for it!  Many HR departments have budgets for that.  Here's the flyer:

*** We are looking for cruise sponsors ***  If your firm is looking to market to a diverse  community this summer, this year's sixteen-cruise series is the perfect opportunity for some great direct advertising exposure to over 5000 individuals who attend, plus our extensive marketing campaign.  Contact olaf@salsaboston.com for inquiries, or call 617-513-9841.

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.

On Sunday July 29th Salsa Night Band will be closing the Lawrence Latino Festival with a night of hot salsa, puertorican style.  We'll be playing the band's original songs along with the all time classics the band is also known for.  We'll also have the participation of such great puertorican folklore performers as Luz Celenia and Waldo Torres amongst others.  Hope to see you all there as we celebrate this popular yearly festival that has a reputation of being one of the best organized summer events in the state.  See you all soon, and as so well said by one of our most popular DJs in the Boston area..............."que viva la salsa".
