Event 2017-11-22: Salsa at Irish Club then Drift Bar on Wednesdays!

It’s the Irish Club as usual tonight to break my salsa-fast of three nights rest after Wednesday at Irish, Friday at El Grande and Saturday at Salsa Fusion. Every week more and more talented salseras turn up at the Irish Club and sometimes it’s almost as good as a London venue in terms of the number of quality of dances I have!

Philip Wake Managed an hour at The Irish Club before I overheated and had to go – had some lovely dances with old and new friends! 
Philip Wake Popped into Asda on the way home to buy some potatoes and bananas. As I left a vision of beetroot came into my head and I‘m a great believer that the body knows what it needs so I had to go back and get a jar of pickled beetroot – 82p for 710g. Ate half the jar while watching a TV film before going to bed – nirvana! 
Philip Wake Was thinking of Drift tonight but antibiotics usually take 3 days to kick in so I‘ll take the night off and concentrate on Putney Salsa & Bachata Club on Friday & La Tasca Bournemouth on Saturday! 

Salsa Katanga runs an evening of salsa dancing at the Irish Club from 8:30pm-11pm every Wednesday evening! Join Katanga, Andy, Skye and Claire for salsa lessons, with 4 levels from beginner to advanced from 8:30pm or just come social dancing at 9:30pm as I do. It’s an excellent venue with parking nearby, sprung dance floor, reasonably priced drinks at the bar and a friendly atmosphere. A variety of salsa, bachata, animations and a taste of kizomba are played by a proprietor and DJ whose enthusiasm for salsa dancing is infectious to say the least ! 🙂

and then at

Drift Bar Southsea (Google map from Irish Club) with The RUMBA (I plan to arrive at 11:30 to see if there are enough dancers there to carry on dancing the night away but these days usually not! If I‘m with Teresa I can usually have a few with her but sometimes the music isn’t motivational to partner dancing!)

Salsa at the Portsmouth Irish Centre from 8:30pm-11pm every Wednesday evening then afterwards at the Drift Bar in Southsea until 2am!
