    How much alcohol can you handle?

    :cry: I've been married for 10 years (so I have no self image or confidence.) :lol: ! Just kidding - But to get back to the needing alcohol/help - you have to remember alcohol is a drug just like smoking or caffeine or any other nasty habit. You have to control it and be responsible...

    How much alcohol can you handle?

    Hi all, I think a few drinks is ok (just enough to loosen up a bit.) I personally will anywhere from 8-10 drinks (mostly shots of rum or tequila) over a period of 3-4 hours ( I just get sabroso :cheers: :banana: ) but that's the limit. I'm a big guy (5'10 225)so don't think I get totally...

    Sorry to have confused you if I did, but dessaix is right - merengue w/guitar/hiphop (merenbachata) - Just add a bachata guitar to the mix of a merengue music and there you go. For Merengue Rípiao add an accordion to the mix of the merengue music and there you go. They are basically...

    When the music is too loud...

    Have any of you guys noticed

    So true I have danced with older, younger, shorter, taller, fatter and skinnier women and you have to kind of test the waters before you go deep. Start with the basics, followed by medium and advanced type stuff - Leave em wanting more. Everyone is different in their own little way.

    How do you deal with sleazy dancers?

    I'm kinda like younsta, I came from mostly hip-hop and the raving scene so it doesn't really shock me - I guess there is a limit to everything though..... :twisted:
