San Diego’s Cafe Sevilla Hosting America’s Largest Dress in All White Yacht Party May 28th

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Although Cafe Sevilla is still not open in their new Fifth Avenue location, the club is keeping their beat alive through their popular yacht party. It’s the return of the biggest boat party in America & they are  kicking off the summer right during Memorial Day weekend.

The 3rd annual “dress in white” party will feature a 3 hour cruise showcasing breathtaking views of San Diego Harbor by night and more importantly great LIVE dance music for salsa and Latin dancers to enjoy.  There will be 3 floors of music (Live Salsa Band, Top 40 DJ’s & Live Flamenco Guitarists), room for 1,000 people on the luxury yacht, 5 fully stocked bars, and1 Massive Outdoor deck with a Cigar Lounge sponsored by Excalibur Cigars.

Angel and Tulane from A Time to Dance Studio will be offering salsa lessons at the event and the headlining act will be Son Mayor, an LA band that plays with a high energy style of Salsa popular in Southern California venues like The Mayan, Steven’s Steakhouse & The Hollywood Bowl.

THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT- Purchase your tickets early!!!  Also don’t forget that this is a Dress in All White party.  You don’t have to wear white by why would you want to stand out as the only person on the boat not wearing white?  If white isn’t your color just try to find something white like a skirt, tie, shoes, hat, etc.

Ritmo Bello and the San Diego Salsa & Latin Dancing Meetup Group are sponsors of the event and we invite you to attend this great kick off to summer.  For more information about the event including RSVP info please check the event page on the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group.

See you all on the Sevilla on the Bay Yacht!
