One can Search the Dancing in Paris thread to find posts mentionning a party name (and then get the latest news about), a DJ name, or whatever.

There is a lot of data in the thread, but also questions and answers, as well as feedback or reviews from SFers visiting Paris (this is appreciated).

One can also search for threads with "Paris" in the title, go to the advanced Search page, find the "Search By Key Word(s)" area, put "Paris" in the "Key Word(s)" field and select the "Search Titles Only" (instead of the "Search Entire Posts") option, check the other tunings, and validate.

Re: CI Janet

Actually the best place in Puerto Rico is the lobby - and I mean lobby! - of the Marriot Hotel in San Juan. As you go past reception, you see the bar ahead and the band on the left, with a dance floor in front. This is the tourist precinct. On the right side of the bar is a second dance floor, and that's where the locals hang out and dance. It's all free and these people can really dance, even the boys who look like they're 12. What's nice is that they turn up wearing anything, clothes and shoes-wise, and then show you how it's done. These people can also tell you what's going on elsewhere. The dancing spills out to reception and all over the lobby on a good night. PR is fairly on2 (NY connection) but many top leaders can effortlessly flip. The best aspect of Puerto Rico is the fabulous live salsa bands - enjoy!
