    Great to see that DJ Matt will be there also.

    I assume that I'll meet up with El Chino aka Solarlatinclub and DJ Ara and many many very fine ladies.

    Sorry to hear that. Hope you recover soon.

    As for me, I will be dancing in a small little place in the middle of nowhere in Mississippi as usual. :) But its all good; Christmas and New Years fall in the middle of the week, so no club closures on dance night! :)

    Thank you!! :) I arrive late on a Tuesday night; plan to dance the Wed and Thurs (Jan 15 and 16) and was planning to follow the suggestions on the San Francisco thread Suitz initiated. Hope I get the opportunity to meet up with some SFers!

    Wednesday should be at El Valenciano, 1153 Valencia St, San Francisco. It's an on2 dance venue. Usually very good dancers. Excellent DJ. There is a lesson at 9:15 by Gabriel Romano. Beginnerish level. Social dancing starts a little after 10pm. El V is my favorite night of the week. I help out at the door.

    Thursday should be Cafe Cocomo's, 650 Indiana St, San Francisco. Beginner lesson (on1) from 8:30-9:30. DJ music followed by live music. Wide range of levels. This is a classic venue that will be closing next spring when their lease is up. Might as well experience it now. I've been going there since 1999.

    Thanks SM! The Thursday night party sounds good, and it's in the Lonely Planet :) - will there be on1 leads? Wed sounds too on2 for me, but I am attracted by good music, so I'll definitely think about it.

    Great advice; we need people like you in all cities :)

    One great thing about the Netherlands is that salsa doesn't stop for Christmas... I went out last night (there was a choice of two events to go) and had a great time burning off the Christmas feast :)

    San Francisco is an on1 city though El V is an exception. However, everyone at El V can dance on1 so you can always make a request. I think Wednesday is Bachata night at Cocomo's. I think this salsa calendar is accurate for the Bay Area:

    Thanks!! Okay, sounds good. Sounds like a horrifically talented city, just like Tokyo :)

    Haven't been following SF for several months! Marty's spot on about the web site and the venues. Though I am not sure if SF can be called an on1 city :) there are a lot of people who can dance on1 or on2 or both. I think it has been most on2 after NYC. Cocomo gets plenty of on1 dancers on Thursday.

    Marking my calendar to go out dancing on 15th and 16th :) will pm you my email and number.
