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.

Where: Hamburger Mary’s – 740 E. Broadway Avenue, Long Beach.

How much: $10 cover charge donation

My good friend Greg, a Lakewood native and Long Beach resident, is participating in his very first AIDS/LifeCycle, a fully supported, 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, May 31 – June 6, 2009.  That’s 545 miles, y’all!

THAT is dedication that we can–and should–get behind!

On Monday, May 4th, Greg is dusting off the frock and, well, dragging out of the closet his alter-ego ANGELICA STRANGE DEVILLE to the stage to raise money for his AIDS/LifeCycle ride.  $10 cover donation with raffles and games and a LOT of fun.  Cocktails from 8-10 p.m.  Show starts at 10 p.m.

Certainly, I will be there!

This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity…see it now or never!  (You may be better off with never, he said…)  Having had met Angelica before, I can guarantee you, this will be one heck of an evening!

To support Greg without going to the show, please make a TAX DEDUCITBLE donation to Greg.

AIDS/LifeCycle is co-produced by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and is designed to advance their shared interest to end the pandemic and human suffering caused by AIDS.
