Meetup Member Mixer, Salsa lesson, and Social at Copa LADIES night

Copa, in conjunction with AustinSalsaPromotions, is hosting a special Third Friday Monthly evening inviting Meetup members to Copa. This is a great opportunity for beginners and those wanting to begin. Come socialize with other meetup members and make new friends, enjoy a beginner On2 Salsa lesson, then practice, visit, and watch at Austin's beautiful Copa - Austin's greatest Salsa asset.

NO COVER for LADIES all night. Gents' cover only $3 til 10pm; normal $8 rate after 10pm.
You must say you're a Meetup member at the door to take advantage of our $3 special group discounts.

$3 Specials til 10pm - Beer and well drinks til 10pm. Try a special, end of summer, yummy tropical Flirtini (Pineapple Juice, Vodka, Cointreau, Champagne). Perhaps the Cranberry Flirtini?

And, keeping the theme of 3s, members of three meetups are converging to enjoy a fine evening of socializing and dancing - the Austin Salsa Dance Meetup, the Austin Area over 40 singles adventurers group meetup, and the Austin Rocks! - Day / Night Life for All Adults meetup! Over 40 people from Meetup.com are expected to be in attendance. Schedule:
8:30-9pm
-- Start off the evening with "Get to know me happy-half-hour". Too loud to socialize during a regular night out? Join us early! Let's get aquainted. Mitch will have a salsa documentary playing on the flatscreen so you can actually watch *and* listen for a change. Update: I'll be playing one of my favorite's: "Through The Eyes of Larry Harlow"

9-10pm -- Join us for a beginner level On2 Class with Austin Salsa Promotions' Mitch & Georgette. (Welcome to Meetup Mitch - a NEW ASSISTANT ORGANIZER!) Meetup members attend class for, how much? $3! Important RE: Shoes: Rubber is not so good for your knees, so leather or hard plastic soled shoes are recommended for dancing - Ladies, shoes with heel straps preferred.

10pm -- DJ Fabian spins dance music starting at 10pm (Salsa, ChaCha, Merengue, & Bachata).

Copa requests: 21 and up ONLY (sorry!). No caps, shorts, sandals, raggedy tees. Don't get turned away at the door, "Dress to impress."

    WOW! This was the most successful meetup we had. I couldn't count but I'd venture to guess we brought about 120 people together from the 3 different meetup groups! It was so much fun! Next month, same time, same place, we'll have more space downstairs to dance and to mingle! Hope you'll join us again.

    It was so much fun. I met a few people and danced a few dances. I look forward to our next night out at Copa's.

    It was very fun, with lots of people. We might want to have a longer social get-together at the beginning.

    It was awesome. The initial half an hour to meet everybody was well worth it.

    From all 3 groups invited, about 40 people are coming as of 9/12! This is going to be fun!

    The suggestion I hear the most for meetups is that we should have more opportunities to socialize - Hope to see you there at 8:30!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
