Class+Dancing: VIP @ Good Times w/ DJ Olga T!

GOOD TIMES IS GOING LATIN, JUST FOR US, and JUST THIS ONCE!

I have specially and personally organized this event FOR US with DJ Olga T, the creator and long standing owner of Good Times at The Den! We will have a VIP lounge section just for us, reserved all night! You MUST RSVP for this!!!

7-8pm meetup group mingling in VIP

8 - ? Dance Lesson (class length & type depending on interest. I'll take a vote at 8pm. I am at your disposal!)

9 -10pm Open Latin dancing

10-12pm Mix of reggaeton, latin, and hip hop

Ever wanted to just meet, mingle, and network with the other members of this group? Here's your chance! from 7-8pm we will have the club to ourselves pretty much, and our own VIP section specifically. No strict agenda, just come out and say HI! I'll help everyone meet each other and feel comfortable. Grab a drink and meet some folks. This IS a "meet up" after all! :)

Dance class at 8pm! The level will be determined by who's in the room. Beginners/First timers always welcome. If you intermediate folks want to work on some cool stuff with me ;) then we'll kick it up to high gear at 8:30pm! If you guys want to learn Merengue, Bachata, Cha-Cha, or anything else, let me know and we'll make it happen!

Good Times is the longest continuously running FREE queer dance party in the East Bay, and perhaps in the whole bay. Every Wednesday, 8pm-12pm, NO COVER, no drama, no pretenses. Just amazing hiphop beats by DJ Olga T and an epic rotation of well known guest DJs, and strong drinks by the friendly Den bar staff. More about Good Times here:

The Den is the beautiful nightclub attached to The Fox Theater on Telegraph, two blocks from 19th St. BART. There is lots of street parking too. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE! BART! CARPOOL! Use the comments section below to offer a ride if you are driving, or ask for rides if you want one.

This is a big opportunity for our meetup group and I am really excited to bring this to you! If this is successful, we can do more awesome stuff like this. So PLEASE, if you like this, here's some ways you can lend your support:

#1 RSVP to this meetup - even No's with a comment are helpful!

#2 Can you think of any friends/co-workers who might enjoy this? Have them join this group and RSVP to this meetup!

#3 SHOW UP in FORCE! :) This is a great event for those of you who like nightclubs, and anyone who's wanted to check out the famous Good Times. This will be an extra-friendly welcome. If we bring big numbers, we will get lots of extra perks!

#4 Spend some money at the bar while you're there! Even if it's just cokes/juice, every dollar we spend at the bar is a vote to the management to bring us back.

#5 I'm doing this for FREE. No one is paying me for the hours I spend organizing, promoting, preparing/planning, teaching, or hosting. If you like this event and want to encourage me to do this kind of thing again, you can make the suggested donation of $10* on the left column, or tip me in person if you prefer!

--> QUESTIONS? COMMENTS? SUGGESTIONS? post 'em below (or message me if you want privacy!)

HAPPY DANCING! I CAN'T WAIT TO MEETUP WITH YOU ALL!

<3, your humble leader,

Alexandria

*What do you do with the money/Why are you asking for cash? Here are just some expenses I pay out of my own pocket: $20/month to meetup to have a group, $35/week to use The WEB studio, BART costs, meetings with owners/managers, scouting locations, etc. So far I haven't been able to break even. If I did have leftover money, I would print flyers, buy new salsa music for class, bring refreshments to meetups, and more!
