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.

Keep dancing!

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.

Dear Friends,

Located in the historic South End, near the corner of Mass Ave and Tremont Streets (at 85 West Newton Street), our new venue has it all,
including: a performance stage, club lighting and sound, a balcony overlooking the main dancefloor, and so much more.

Havana Saturdays will feature Javier Arroyo's Salsa Night Band, Grupo Sazon and Cinco Son the first three weeks. The party will be 18+ (w. college ID) and will be a cool, classy cultural event that brings people together in a healthy way that reflects not only the beautiful look and feel of the space, but also its original

I'll have more details about the new party new week, but for now let me just say that I am pumped! And when you guys see the place, you will be
So *mark your calendars, tell your friends, email the contacts on your lists, and let the word go forth - Havana Saturdays will rock again!*
