Dancing to Live Salsa Music in NY: Featuring Frankie Vasquez at Monique’s Lounge 108 (NYC)

When going out salsa dancing in NY, you’ll occasionally get the following question: “So, what type of salsa club are we going to?”  Though one salsa club is the same as any other salsa club for most people, there’s a delineation in NY between clubs/socials that have “trained” dancers, and those who’ve primarily learned in the ...

Restaurant Review: Guantanamera Restaurant (Hell’s Kitchen, NYC)

While on vacation, I will often look for experiences  that help me understand and define the character of the city that I’m visiting.  After living in New York for over 10 yrs, I realize that I definitely take the City for granted and have not delved into finding its heartbeat as much as I would when visiting a new location. Fortunately, there are those around ...

Show Review: Ulalena (Maui, Hawai’i)

Photo Credit: mauitheatre.com While planning out our evening activities, I happened to fall upon an advert for Ulalena in one of the many brochures at our hotel. I’m usually not the type to scour through advertisements in magazines as I prefer finding my info online, but in retrospect, I’m incredibly happy that I did as Ulalena ...

Restaurant Review: Nai Tapas Bar (LES, NYC)

Just another one of those inconspicuous Manhattan restaurants, whose storefront doesn’t do justice to the experience that is awaiting inside.  A few weeks ago, a group of friends had agreed to meet for a birthday celebration at Nai Tapas Bar, located on the Lower East Side.  For larger groups, Nai provides a delicious fixed menu for $40 per person, that ...

Saleya Latin Night by F&F Dance Company (NYC)

 I just wanted to send out a quick invitation to anyone looking for a chill, after-work spot to hang out at on Thursday nights. Not only do you get a complimentary drink with the $10 admission, there will be a dance lesson, and the ’65 special’ ($6 drinks, $5 specialty pizzas) will be offered throughout the entire event (seriously, those pizzas are off the ...

Restaurant Review: Las Tinajas (Panama City)

For anyone that’s been to Hawaii, the overall experience at Las Tinajas is much like a luau (delicious food+folkloric dances), but Panamanian style!  As I was traveling solo, the hostess decided that I would get the ‘special seat’ for the night.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that my table was right off the side of stage, which gave me an ...

SULI 3rd Year Anniversary (8/3/13)

I just wanted to congratulate DJ Alfredo Felix ‘the Cat’ on the completion of another successful year hosting this amazing event.  DJ Alfredo has been a strong supporter of F&F Dance Company from the start, and it really was a personal joy and honor to be able to return some of that love by performing at his event. Great music (including live band) + packed ...
