Happy Hour at Macalouso's Roadhouse

Our first meetup will be Thurs at Macaluso's in Vadnais Heights/White Bear Lake. It's no Toby Keiths (my favorite place) but it has a small dance floor, Tim Sigler performing at 9, no cover charge and easy access near 35E and 694 (take either exit 115 or 117 off 35E -see map) The food's pretty good too

    Thanks for bringing us together Lil. It's a nice group of people and some good ideas were generated.

    BTW gang, Lil doesn't know I'm posting this but as a former organizer myself I know Meetup charges her a monthly $15 fee to let her put up our group site. I think we should help her bear that cost because the site id definitely worth it to help us find each other and events. But I can't be seen slipping her cash in a dark bar so I'll probably have to pass it to her through the waitress :-)

    It was a nice evening. I enjoyed meeting everyone. I almost scored a nice cowboy hat.....but I figured Lil would notice it on my head next time we meet! Thanks Lil for getting this group started. I cannot wait to start dancing lessons.

    I guess I typed into much on my previous message.... just one more note.

    Next February, Withrow is looking at having another Country Variety Night - like the one they held Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The place was packed, great night of dancing! As soon as I hear the details, I will let you know.

    I will try and make it tomorrow night, all depends on work :-(

    To JR, I usually go to B-Dale (MN West Coast Swing Club) on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month for their DJ dances, lessons included in the price (I think its $10 for non-members and $7 for members) Lessons are from 7:30 to 8:30, Dance from 8:30 to Midnight. Lessons are usually in West Coast Swing. On the 3rd Friday of the month, Stark has Swing and Variety for $5 for the night, dance starts at 8pm. On Wednesday night, Stark's has Line Dancing along with WCS and C2Step, line dance lesson at 7:30 with the music starting at 8pm. Price is $5 (I've only gone a couple of times.) On Sunday night, Rebels has 2 hour classes from 5-7, scheduled changes monthly, and twice a month they have a variety dance from 7 to 10:30pm. They are held at Social Dance Studio.

      I haven't been there for line dance lessons so I don't know what they teach. Maybe they'll teach was we ask of them, but there is no charge

    I only know of two live country spots in the East Metro - South St. Paul VFW and the Doghouse near Maplewood Mall. Starks does DJ music and some dance lessons. Anyone know of others?

      Like I said, I onlly go to TK's when there is a band I like playing there, cuz I live so close and they get good bands. Doesn't matter to me much about the dancing, I can't dance the whole time anyway - I love to listen to the music and socialize with people. Looking forward to that with this group!

      And I am with you Pat! I usually do too because if I want to dance, nothing is going to stop me!! And prefer to just go when a band is playing> I enjoy both line dancing and freestyle, but personally wouldn't be interested in events for lessons, I already know how to dance, and like live music. 'just giving my input as I am sure we all have diffferent interests and reasons for joining this group, and Lil is asking for input and suggestions..... As a musician myself I very much enjoy listening and appreciating music of all types from that perspective, as well as dancing. Just depends on what I am in the mood for!

    What a great mix of Fans - I KNEW you were out there somewhere! BONUS we have an RN in case we get carried away! :-) Seriously, I'm so happy to see the response and look forward to meeting each of you. Thanks for all the awesome suggestions, they'll make great meetups in the future. Our first meetup will be Thurs at Macaluso's in Vadnais Heights/White Bear Lake. It's no Toby Keiths (my favorite place) but it has a small dance floor, Tim Sigler performing at 9, no cover charge and easy access near 35E and 694 (take either exit 115 or 117 off 35E -see map) The food's pretty good too!

    I'll be there from 5-8:30pm Just look for the black Stetson cowboy hat, it will either be on my head or on the table. I don't normally wear one but I can't think of any other identifier off the top of my head, no pun intended...

    I apologize if this date doesn't work for you, we just need to start somewhere. So make a suggestion for meetup #2 or 3, hopefully east of 35W, and I'll try to be there!
