Last Thursday, City Club opened with a BLAST!  About 170 people showed, and 
actually the place wasn't even close to being packed!  "Great floors" were the 
number one comment, and overall people gave the place two thumbs up.  Big 
space; filled with cool fun people (come meet some!); totally free/hassle free 
parking; full bar, all ages admitted (proper ID required for drinking); ice 
cold air conditioning; etc. etc. etc.  D. Martinez in the house this week, 
plus beginner and intermediate classes with Meta Movements.  Scroll down for 
more info!

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.
