a "Jack and Jill" dance competition!  We did this at the Fall Gala with 14 
couples and it was a blast, so we're going to do it again!  The way it works 
is people sign up individually, and we pair you with a partner by lottery--you 
don't know who you're going to dance with(!)  Then there are two short dance 
rounds, and winners are selected by audience vote (i.e. the applause-o-meter).  
The winning couple gets $200 cash, and the top four couples all win gift 
certificates to SalsaBoston events.  Come join in the fun!  More details and 
rules on the website.

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 

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.
