I'm planning to visit New York City in January 2009, with a couple of nights available for checking out the "scene." Specifically, I will be around on the nights of Saturday Jan. 17th and Sunday Jan. 18th. I'm a die-hard On1 dancer, but I can get by with some simple dancing On2. I'll also have a female friend with me who dances On1 and knows the basics of following On2. In other words, we will be comfortable dancing with each other if it turns out that we're just hopelessly incompetent by the native's standards. I also prefer live bands, but a great DJ can keep me happy. So, where do you think we would enjoy going on that Saturday night? A live music venue with a friendly dancing atmosphere would be terrific! (Neither one of us feels like we have to dance with performance-level partners to have a good time.) Generally speaking, though, is there a "don't miss" spot that any visiting Salsa dancer has to visit on a Saturday night in New York City? I'm assuming that Jimmy Anton's social is still "the" thing to do on a Sunday night, so that's what I'm planning to check out on Sunday the 18th. I do understand that it's a hardcore On2 place, so I'm already expecting to do more watching than dancing at that social (although I'm fine dancing Chachacha On2). Is there another Sunday spot that I should consider in addition to (or instead of) Jimmy Anton's social? By the way, I'm aware of SalsaNewYork.com and MamboNYC.com, but I just wanted to get some more personalized recommendations -- especially for spots that would be friendly for On1 dancers. Plus, I haven't made my hotel reservations yet, so I wanted to get an idea of which part of town I should target. In any event, I will have a car, which should give me a lot of flexibility for getting to and from any obscure-yet-highly-recommended location. Thanks for whatever help you can provide!
