We haven’t been quite as active, but we hope we’ll be doing better by getting folks to participate more. If you have a Long Beach event you’d like us to join in, please do share!

Now, we have a few upcoming events to put on your radar.

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.

 LBCTweetup at The Reef

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.

For those of you willing to brave the drive to Lancaster (2 hours north), the California Poppy Festival will be an awesome event to attend and photograph. It is also family friendly.

From the website:

Join us for two days of music music, art, food and fun celebrating the state flower of California and the appearance of poppies in the Antelope Valley! Warm breezes replace the winter chill, jubilant laughter fills the air, and poppies burst into bloom blanketing hillsides in a sea of orange. The California Poppy Festival kicks off spring in the Antelope Valley with a glorious array of celebrated performers, unrivaled events, and mouth-watering delicacies designed to delight, enchant, and amuse people of all ages.

Another option to is do a day hike at the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve.
