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 

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.

behalf of Salsa y Control, the Havana Club Dancers, and the MIT Rueda Group,

SF18+ should feel familiar to folks - there is a large ballroom, which has a 
raised performance stage. And SF18+ will be packed with great dancers and 
great people. It is in Central Sq. There's also a good parking situation- FREE 
(yeah, how good is that!) parking just one street over (the lot at the corner 
of Prospect and Bishop Allen). And the venue is a big space (capacity: 400), 
with several different room options for us to eventually play with (we'll 
start with two). SF18+ is a social, so feel free to bring your own 
water/sports drinks/etc. There's no alcohol, but "The Tavern" is across the 
street. It's going to be an awesome night! Oh yeah, tell your friends! It is a 
good space. Great location. Let's make it happen!
