Casino on Cardboard in Coronado Beach Sat, Apr 28th

This is the April instalment 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. We are celebrating my birthday and my dear friend from Seattle, Barbara Crummins' birthday and any birthdays that fall near ours. So come by and dance and share good times in one of the most beautiful beach sites in San Diego. 
When: Saturday, April 28th from 3pm to 8pm
Set up is at 2pm
Where: Coronado Beach across from Sunset Park in Coronado
Sunset Park address is 101 Ocean Boulevard, Coronado, CA

Here is what I need, someone to help me unload the floor and tape it up at 2pm. 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 and a cooler with ice and a couple of trashbags. For the bonfire, we need firewood, fire-starter elements and matches/or a lighter.

Come by and bring some snack or drinks, beach towels or beach chairs, a sweater or sweatshirt as it will get cold later as the sun goes down.

I'll be leading a few suelta lines and teaching people who want to learn how to dance to the "son" beat and back to salsa (from on-4 to on-1 and dancing to ponches inteh music!) Pura vida!

If you get lost, call me on my cell at 206-300-4523

Timba & Cuban Funk Night Returns to The Kava Lounge

Timba & Cuban Funk Night is making its comeback to the Kava Lounge after a long hiatus. Now Timberos and dancers of all walks can get their fill for Cuban music at the Kava Lounge. It's a simple thang: Cuban music & Timba spinning from 9pm till 1am on Tuesday, May 1st. It's going to be Timba ("Cuban salsa"), Rumba, Cuban funk, Son & Reggaeton from Cuba. Maybe some other stuff mixed in there, too.

No dress to impress, no crazy acrobatic dance spin show offs, no attitudes. Come dressed in whatever the hell you are comfortable in to get your rumbeo a lo Cubano! Seriously, you dance better with flip flops? That's cool!

Yours truly will be spinning the hottest Timba and Cuban music all night. What do you need to do? Get your butt down there, buy a drink at the bar to support the folks at Kava, and enjoy the music. Dance with a partner, dance by yourself, it's whatever you wanna make it.

$5 at the door. 21 and up. Music starts at 8:30pm and goes till midnight. No class-this is a straight music night, and there will be dancers of all levels, experienced and people just exploring the awesome sounds of Cuban music.
