Review of Pre-Thanksgiving Salsa Extravaganza at the Mission Valley Hilton

Sunday, November 25, 2007

Hello Everyone! The Pre-Thanksgiving Salsa Extravaganza at the Mission Valley Hilton was a great event. Biz and I arrived sometime after 9pm and we came just in time for the beginning of general dancing. To be honest with you, I was really surprised to see so many familiar faces at the event given it was the day before Thanksgiving. It was nice to catch up with old friends, be mistakenly identified as my brother (which by the way happens quite a bit in the Salsa scene here in San Diego), and enjoy the great music of Johnny Polanco. We were also treated with some dance performances (see video above -the sound quality is not the best though, my apology) and even caught a cameo appearance of an original member of the Buena Vista Social Club (not 100% sure on this but Biz thinks he was, so I believe her ;-D).

All in all, it was a great event and I’ll be sure to visit the Mission Valley Hilton for Salsa in the future.
