Greetings Everyone!
Casineros have been asking for this in San Diego! In an effort to celebrate the Holidays and get our rueda on in a fun way, we are meeting up for a Random Acts of Cuban Dancing Progressive Rueda Meet-Up. Balboa Park is doing their Annual December Nights at the Park. It's filled with people and booths and a perfect place to dance before , during and maybe after, where ever there is a grassy area to do a rueda or dance casino.  This time we are adding a "Pokemon Go" feature to this activity. We are starting the meet-up at the Veterans Museum Memorial Garden where there will be parking and a good space to dance. Then we will start at the Fleet Science Center to meet up and find some grass to do our next "Rueda Set Go!" Flash Mob and post the next place to meet and when to meet on Baila Cubano San Diego, Inc Group Page. Make sure to bring a fully charged cell phone with access to Google Maps and Facebook, you will need it. It's going to be packed with people, so we will send you the latitude/longitude coordinates that you can follow on your Google Map to walk where we are. If you are directionally-challenged, bring someone who is not to help you find your way to us.

Greetings Casineros & Amigos, 
I know it's not a "timba" social...BUT we can still dance casino & rueda de casino to salsa music which technically speaking, is Cuban music (Son Montuno). PLUS, since we have more casineros in North County, it is super convenient to stay local and avoid crazy holiday drivers on the highway. Let's meet up for some dancing and burn some calories before the big thanksgiving grazing and the traditional carb-build up.
