Hi gang!

Sorry, we haven’t posted anything here lately. We have moved the operations over to Facebook group to see if that would fare better. So far, it’s going pretty well!  If you haven’t join our group yet, please do!

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.

Halloween on Pine

Halloween on Pine

Come out and party at Halloween on Pine!

A Frightening FREE Halloween Festival – 8PM – MIDNIGHT • Pine & Broadway

  • Fabulous food and drink specials from your favorite local eateries.
  • Haunting sights and sounds by DJ Groovy Lu
  • Diabolical dancing by moonlight
  • Hair-raising comedy showcase by the Laugh Factory
  • COSTUME CONTEST! Over $1,000 in prizes: Best Superhero • Best Villain • Best Female Overall • Best Male Overall • Most Outrageous

The event, while not outright ADULT ONLY, I was advised that it’s going to be a bit on the rowdy side, like mini West Hollywood.  So if you want to keep your kids from seeing things they’ll ask about later *ahem*, you might want to sneak out without them.

On a selfish note, I am performing Thriler with a group of Thrill the World Los Angeles and OC zombies at 8:30, then I’ll teach for an hour, and perform again at 9:45.  After that, I’m free to party down.

Join me, won’t you? 🙂

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.

All are welcome, bring a camera. We’ll meet at the Coffee Bean and then take a photo walk around the area. I’m new to Long Beach, so if someone else wants to lead, that’s great. We can also find a place to chill and people watch/shoot. Maybe try out improv street portraiture.

Don’t forget to sign up at the Upcoming event page and join the LBC Tweetup Upcoming Group.

See you Sunday, Jan 11, at 10 AM at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf on 2nd Street (you know, @agentjon‘s second home)
