sizable dance floor that holds about 150 people, a bar, and plenty of lounge 

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

Salsa y Control Dance Company
Celebrating Our 5th Anniversay
******3 part series******

Friday, February 29, 2008 (leap year)
Havana Club hosted by Salsa y Control.
288 Green St. Central Sq. Cambridge, near the red line.

Special Party Celebrating the “Golden Age of Salsa: The 70’s”.
Come on boogie with us and have a psychedelic time!!!

Salsa is not only the captivating music we hear and dance to today. It is a 
social and cultural movement that exploded in the early 70’s, primarily in New 
York City. It was a search for identity for Latin New Yorkers and during that 
process became a way of life. Through a series of efforts to promote Latin 
music at that time, Salsa seemed to be the concept that best captured the 
meaning, feeling, and soul of Afro-Cuban/Latin music. Fania records put 
together some of the best singers and musicians of that era creating what is 
known as the Fania All-Stars. With numerous sold out concerts, Fania All-Stars 
where very influential in having the term Salsa catch on not only in New York 
and the U.S, but throughout the world.

The party will feature:

-From the movie “El Cantante” with Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony ***EDWIN 
RIVERA performing his tribute to Roberto Roena from Fania

70s through vintage footage playing on a big screen, photos, concert posters
