Let's do something a little different and take a break from the all-salsa-music clubs and go check out Conga Room in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. Conga room is a Latin club, partially owned by J.Lo and probably the most upscale of its kind.
One of our members, Dante, has arranged for us to get in for free.Thank you, Dante! When you arrive just say that you are in the nate matrix guest list and it is free before 10pm. The entry is from the courtyard of LA Live complex.
The main floor will have a Sonora show, which is Latin music: cumbia, merengue etc. There are two other dance floors playing a variety of music from club music to tropical music. (Conga room has expanded their music offering in case some of you remember the old Conga Room)
We'll meet at 9.30pm in the main room. Look for anyone wearing a glowband and they can point out where I am. After 10, possibly 10.30pm there will be a cover charge and we may wonder between the rooms, so it will be harder to find us: be sure to come before 10!. Don't hesitate to come alone, I'll introduce you to people and you'll have blast!
Parking in the area can be expensive. Attached is a map Conga Room web site has posted, but no guarantees how accurate it is. Dante says parking is ten dollars at the LA Live parking lot next door if you go in after 9:00 all the other lots are between 10 and 20 dollars.
In Conga Room you can actually see guys wearing suits! They have a dresscode: no gang wear or anything super casual..
There is a complimentary salsa class from 9.15pm to 10pm. ( Doors open at 9pm, but class starts always a bit late).
Please honor your RSVPs, we have a no repeat flaking policy!
Looking forward to seeing you all soon!!!!!!!
