Step on out to The White Horse for Tacos and Two Steppin. Bomb Taco has the Tacos on the patio. They have an awesome taco menu that is the bomb! Inside with Two Left Foots has the best lesson in town at 7:00 followed by Dave Insley and the Careless Smokers at 8:00.
Two Left Foots provides a beginner-beginner lesson with plenty of work on the basic step, leading and following, a basic turn, and awesome styling. Don't worry about bringing a partner, they pair folks up during the lesson and rotate partners throughout the lesson. It's a great way to meet a bunch of people and after the lesson there's a bunch of people to dance with and practice what you just learned. There's lots of beginners so you'll be in good company for dancing. The dance crowd at the White Horse is friendly and are looking to dance too.
No cover before the lesson, $5 cover later, also bring a little extra cash for tipping for lesson and band. $5 suggested donation for the dance lesson.
Parking on the street. Check the signs for paid street parking, pay at kiosks and put tag in the window. FYI - Free parking on Comal St just north of 7th Street next to the cemetery. Bonus - if you ask the ghosts nicely they'll watch your car for you. Arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to find parking and enjoy a cold beverage. Cheap PBR in cans and on tap.
Where to meet: Between the end of the bar and sound booth - that's where the cool kids hang out.
