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.
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."
