    I'm going to be in the Baltimore-DC area next week, so, naturally, there must be a salsa night. I will take Monday, Tuesday (preferred), or Wednesday. So what's good? Who wants to meet up? When and where is that clavekazi social?

    Hi Antigone -

    I don't know much about the current Baltimore scene, but my recommendations for the DC area would be: Monday check out Clarendon Grill in Arlington; Tuesday The Barking Dog in Bethesda - both are Metro accessible and are popular venues. I don't often make it out on Mondays but am usually at the Barking Dog (as is Beto). Check your pm's

    In Baltimore, Club One on Wednesdays is a reliably good venue. Susan Leiter teaches from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. After that it is open dance. The night usually wraps up by 12:00pm. Susan posts info and updates on her site www.alivewithdance.com.

    The next Clavikazi Social is Sunday, October 12 at the Salsa Room in conjunction with Stuck on Salsa called, "The All Black Party." Stuck on Salsa is known for having the hottest parties in DC and with Clavikazi on board, this should be no exception. 2619 Columbia Pike, Arlington, VA. 10PM-2AM.

    The night before, Mr. Mambo & Stuck on Salsa Social is being held at the DC Dance Collective Studio on Saturday, October 11. This social is becoming known as being very Mambo friendly. Located at 4908 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC. 10PM-2AM.

    I was in the DC area recently. Clarendon Grill was the place with the most "dancers." There is salsa there on Mondays. There was a mix of On1 and On2 dancers. If you can make it out on Monday, this would be the place to check out, IMO. The dancng goes from around 9 pm to midnight.

    I was in DC last week and on Monday went to Lucky Bar initially in downtown DC, then went over to Clarendon Grill, which appeared to have a better scene, but the bar wouldn't let me in with my Canadian driver's license, even after checking in "the book" and confirming that the ID matched the book, saying that the holographic seal was scratched. They said that they only take passports for internationals. (Even though as a Canadian I don't technically need to have my passport to be in the US- I've only had a problem at one other bar with this, but they still always let me in.) boo.
    Barking Dog on Tues had a nice scene.

    Well, guys, I had so much fun last night that I just might make it out next monday, if I can still stand after the congress (and the drive...and the flight). Thanks for the recommendations!

    It was a pleasure meeting you Tuesday night at the Barking Dog. Thank you for the dances! :D

    It was great meeting you at Barking Dog although we kept passing each other on the dance floor. You lucked out because normally, you wouldn't have that many guy dancers there.

    If you are able to make it to Clarendon next Monday, I guarantee you will meet even MORE lead dancers. Plus, I can intro you to Jimmy- a newly transplanted dancer from your hometown now living in DC.
