Coffee & Chill

La Colombe - Fishtown

I used to host a coffee hour every Sunday and then had to put it on the back-burner due to other commitments. Since I have free time again on Sundays and the heat has returned with a vengeance, why not relax and enjoy some iced or hot java in good air-conditioning. Their java and pastries are always on point and where else can you purchase cool swag items, like caps that state "Catching the redeye"...lol.

Vango SDkylounge Soiree

Vango Lounge & Sky Bar

With my Rueda practice being shifted to Wed evenings, I've decided to host a weekly evening of cocktails and dancing on Monday nights at Vango Sky Lounge & Bar. So here is the deal. Everyone is responsible for paying for their own drinks and food.We will be meeting on the main floor between 9:00-9:15 p.m. to socialize with one another. At 9:15 p.m. you can take advantage of the free lesson, which will either be mambo, salsa, meringue or bachata. Once the lesson is over, practice what you've learned, as well as continue to drink & socialize. See you there. Nuff said. P.S. If you don't recognize me from my photo, please ask bartender/server Amal to point you in my direction☺ & tell them her you're looking for Josh. I've known the staff for years and they've always been attentive to us.
