1st Thursdays of the Month with Meetup.com on April 12 is coming just in time for spring so be ready to meet and greet new members who love salsa dancing as much as you do. The date was moved from April 5th to April 12th in observance of Holy Thursday during Holy Week.
The event is open to everyone so feel free to come alone or bring any friends. We’ll meet downstairs at 8pm in the Meetup.com area of the club that will be reserved for our group. Look for the Meetup.com signs. Walter Meneses will give a free salsa lesson starting at 8:30pm.
If you are new to the San Diego salsa scene you won’t want to miss this event. The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group along with RitmoBello.com are hosting this year’s second Meetup.com night at Cafe Sevilla.
This event will have a dress in all white theme to celebrate the end of summer. If you have a white shirt, pants, hat, etc this is the night to wear it!
Cafe Sevilla is offering drink specials only to our Meetup.com members. Also members will get 1/2 off the cover price if you arrive before 9:30pm. The restaurant is giving away a gift certificate in a raffle but you’ll have to come early at 8pm to be entered to win (plus you can take the FREE salsa lesson which starts at 8:30pm).
Here is a short video from our last event with a preview of what you can expect to see:
Okay, so by now you’ve probably heard about the 1st Wednesday’s of the Month Meetup.com events at Cafe Sevilla (we’ve been hosting them for more than a full year now!). Well, for those that have made it out in the past you know that there is a simple formula for how they work: 1) Come out with the intent to have a good time 2) Meet new people & 3) Do something different to interact with your local San Diego salsa community.
This month the theme is to “Spring into Salsa Dancing” with everything that this implies. If you’ve been sitting on the fence about coming out to our events or if you’ve gone in the past and it’s been some time since you’ve been, I encourage you to come check it out. The event is free and Cafe Sevilla has been gracious to offer drink specials to our group members for the night (see the RSVP page for details).
The event is open to everyone so feel free to come alone or bring any friends. We’ll meet downstairs at 8pm in the VIP area of club that will be reserved for our group. Just look for the Meetup.com signs. Valerie will give a free salsa lesson starting at 8:30pm.
Goodbye 2008!Hello 2009!It’s hard to believe another year has passed us by and with it many so many memories have been built up as well.As we reach the end of this year our thoughts turn to Christmas celebrations and of course the New Year’s celebrations around San Diego.
With so many options available for dancing salsa here in San Diego for the New Year, I wanted to focus on one celebration that will be going on.Valerie and David of SalsaCa.com, longtime friends and supporters of Ritmo Bello, are hosting their 10th Annual New Year’s Eve Party at the Mission Valley Resort.What’s different about this event is that they are offering an option for a “Mini Vacation Package” at the hotel.There is a check in at 3:00pm and the idea is to take advantage of what the hotel has to offer including free access to Frog’s Gym, 3 heated swimming pools, spa services, and shuffle board (if you are into that).Why not take out the stress of drinking and making it back safely to your home by staying the night at the hotel?
For those of you inclined to party and return home that night, the New Year’s Eve “con salsa” party begins at 8:00pm.VIP tables are available for a fee and a free salsa lesion is included by Valerie & David beginning at 8:15pm.
The salsa dancing begins shortly after when DJ’s “New Yo Rican” David Garcia & David Suave take the turn tables.
Around 9:15pm, Charlie Chavez & his All Star Orchestra takes the stage in a live salsa performance.Siempre Salsa’s Midnight celebration includes hats, noise makers, and a complimentary champagne toast.
After the celebration there will be a light late night buffet which includes coffee and tea service.
Tickets are $45.00 in advance and $55.00 day of the event.
