    Salsa in Miami

    Fr Lauderdale has quite a bit of on2 dancing. I guess that answers the last two posts for me. Malakawa may have different reasons for liking Ft Lauderdale though. Also Yuca has a smidgeon of on2 as well.

    Salsa in Miami

    Cabs are quite expensive in Miami. I would say definitely hit up Yuca on South Beach Friday night. Sunday night there is Tequila Ranch in Ft Lauderdale which is good, it won't be worth the cab fare though.

    First Congress Experience

I am saying your statistic and TJ's statement are not necessarily correlated. We all have preferences, I personally find that I...

    top US cities for salsa?

    Friendly to newcomers can be a misleading criteria. It depends on your dance habits. If you are going out dancing 2-3 nights a week then eventually the scene will warm up to you. In my case I live far enough away from the scene where going dancing every week is just a little too much travel...
