WOW! Had a blast last night at The Reef. It turned into a Girls’ Night Out with me, @torie007 and @ResaMichelle. Torie and I were very basic beginners and Resa has salsa’d recently. At 8:30 the lessons began. The broke us into two groups, Beginners and Professionals. Erica was a really good teacher for the beginners. I’ll be honest, this was my very first time salsa dancing and the first time I had been out dancing in a very, very, long time.

Omar the bartender apparently hooked Resa up before I got there and she can attest to the quality of his drinks. I had three  of Terry’s (the other bartender) 007’s. I would have had more but he ran out of Bacardi O.  The $1 tacos were much larger than I expected and pretty tasty as well.LBCTweetup at The Reef

After the lessons they opened the dance floor up. Apparently there were already some regulars and I heard that the Long Beach Salsa Club meets there. No shortage of good dance partners.

I’m hoping to do another tweetup here with a larger group and maybe the SMAPs. Excellent service from the staff, great dancing, and so much fun!


Torie, Resa, feel free to add your impressions.
