San Diego Salsa Dancers Await Re-Opening of Gaslamp Quarter’s $2.7 Million Cafe Sevilla

Saturday, June 4, 2011

When people mention Cafe Sevilla to me the question today is always, “When will Cafe Sevilla Re-open?!”  Well, San Diego salsa dancers your 8 months or so of waiting is coming to an end.  Cafe Sevilla is re-opening in its new 5th Avenue location with a whopping 10,000 square feet restaurant and club this month.  The former location was only 7,000 square feet back on 4th Avenue and Spanish-born owners Rogelio and Janet Huidobro have invested $2.7 million in making sure that the new location meets every salsa dancers’ expectations.

Some of the major changes will include a  larger tapas bar when compared to the old location and an underground nightclub that will accommodate 330 people. We are talking capacity for 90 additional salsa dancers compared to Cafe Sevilla’s old digs.

My hope with the new location is that it meets the needs of San Diego’s salsa dancers and that they bring quality, LIVE entertainment that San Diego sorely needs in a venue.

Cafe Sevilla’s Grand Opening Party & Fundraiser to benefit the It’s All About the Kids Foundation is scheduled  for June 29th but the real salsa dancing  will begin on a regular schedule on Thursdays each week.  I’m already working on getting the first Thursday of each month designated as Meetup.com night and I will get details to you all soon about it.

See you sometime in June at the new 5th Avenue Cafe Sevilla!

Putumayo World Music Releases New Salsa Music Collection “¡Salsa!”

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

 

Putumayo World Music is known throughout the world for connecting people with different types of world music.  Their CD’s are easy to recognize in the stores with their colorful artwork and unique music compilations.  Many of their best CD’s are salsa music collections. I own a couple and really enjoy the distinct salsa artists that are represented on those CD’s.

I was happy to learn that they are going to release a new salsa CD shortly titled “¡Salsa!”.  The new CD features a number of well known salsa artists from Colombia, Cuba, Puerto Rico Venezuela, New York and other places that have influenced salsa music.  These artists include Eddie Palmieri, Cheo Feliciano, Chico Alvarez, Son Boricua, Poncho Sanchez, Jose Conde, Fruko y sus Tesos, and Grupo Galé. 

Putumayo CD Salsa

Apart from sharing great music, Putumayo also helps out the world community through the sales of its CD’s.  For example, a portion of the sale of the new ¡Salsa!” CD will be donated to the Pan American Health and Education Foundation (PAHEF) in support of its efforts to improve health care in the Caribbean and throughout Latin America.  I included the video above to give you some more background information about Putumayo and what they do worldwide.  

For those of you in San Diego on April 1st, I’ll be giving out 3 copies of the new CD at the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group’s Meetup.com night at Café Sevilla.  The first three people to show up at 9pm at the VIP area will get the CD’s.  To find out more information about that event please visit the RSVP page that is already set up (click here to be taken there).
