SALSA EMPIRE Happy Hour Thurs.7/31/14

Dear Organizer: My name is Nancy Alonso, I host a radio show dedicated to Latin music on WPFW and I also promote monthly salsa events at the Empire Club, 6355 Rolling Road, Springfield, VA I would like to invite your Meetup to attend a Happy Hour scheduled for Thursday, July 31st. Happy hour will run from 6:00pm- 8:00pm. Salsa lessons will take place from 7:00-8:00pm. Any of your members who arrive prior to 7:00pm will be admitted free of charge and can stay to enjoy the evening until midnight. Any members arriving after 7pm, are eligible for the discounted price of $8 (regular door price is $10). Members must RSVP directly to my email at [masked] .

Join or login to comment.

    William, I apologize for the misunderstanding. However, we did, in fact announce the pricing. If you read the description above, it states that there was Free Admission before 7:00pm. Members arriving after 7pm were eligible for an $8 discounted price. All others would be charged $10. I saw that you had RSVP'd and I added your name to the $8 list, but since you did not ask the girl at the front if your name was on the list, then she assumed that you were not a Meetup member and charged you the full $10. (Our flyer, website, Facebook announcements, etc. reflected the $10 price but we usually offer discounts to Meetup members as indicated.) I hope you consider returning to Salsa Empire at some future time. Unfortunately, we cannot offer the venue for FREE all night, because there are many costs involved in putting together the venue.

      Ms Alonso, thank you for the consideration of the explanation. My apologies for the misunderstanding.

    This was not a most enjoyable experience. The $10 entry fee was not in the announcement. I have no problem if you had announced it in advance. Just last week I paid $20 for a wonderful evening at Forever Dance studio. Bottom line, never again.
