Casino on Cardboard at Coronado Beach - Sat. Aug 16th


This is the August installment of Casino on Cardboard and we are taking it back to Coronado Beach to watch the sun go down, dance and be amongst our dancing familia. Come learn some fun rueda de casino moves, salsa suelta moves and casino moves while you are there. Bring the family.  Kids and grandparents are welcome! So come by and dance and share good times in one of the most beautiful beach sites in San Diego. I have a really cool casino/rueda de casino game to share that I have created. Come check it out!

What: Casino on Cardboard at Coronado Beach
When: Saturday, August 16th from 5pm to 8pm;  Set up is at 3:30pm
Where: Coronado Beach across from Sunset Park in Coronado
Sunset Park address is 101 Ocean Boulevard, Coronado, CA

I need volunteers to help me unload the floor and tape it up at 3:30pm. I'll meet you at Sunset Park in Coronado Beach (same place we had it before).

We also need a portable table for food and drinks. I have a cooler with ice and a couple of trashbags.

Come by and bring some snack or drinks to share. Bring your beach towels,  beach chairs, a sweater or sweatshirt and a camera as it will get cold later as the sun goes down. This is the last month before school starts all over again so come and enjoy one last month in the warm sun and sunset.
