Location:

the Carlsbad Fair
Author: westiehopper :: Posted: Thu May 04, 2006 9:50 am GMT
The huge Carlsbad street fair is this Sunday, 9-dark(6:30ish). This is the best street fair in the area, in case you've never been. There's a lot of live music in several different locations, but best of all is that in a bar(with a small dance floor) on the main street they have a band that includes that awesome blond boogie woogie keyboard player from Blue Largo. I've been 3 fairs in a row now where they've played from around 11ish AM until late afternoon. FREE. I always do streetfairs alone (don't have to keep track of anyone that way) so it's been hit or miss finding a dance partner. Come dance with me! And there's a great Farmer's Market, too. This fair offers junk, antiques, artists, craftsmen, clothes, music, food and more. You should check it out. And they have a kiddie area, too.
I always park just east of the freeway to avoid traffic, then walk in.

Dancers needed for May 6th
Author: yabork :: Posted: Sat Apr 29, 2006 11:34 am GMT
Hello you Dancers

I have a dance opportunity. A friend of Danielle's Amy Vickerman is looking for four dance couples for an event on May 6Th, 7-10PM at the Loews's Hotel Coronado. A Big Band will be playing and free dinner and drinks will be provided to the couples. The couples need to dress in USO/40's vintage dress. San Diego is entertaining convention organizers trying draw more conventions to the city.

Kendra and I
Sal and ??????
One or two more couples needed. Amy needs the names of the additional couples by Monday to be printed in the programs.

DJ Peter Flahiff at the Firehouse! (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Tue Apr 25, 2006 3:09 am GMT
Peter Flahiff, house DJ at the famous Atomic Ballroom and all-around great guy, is driving down all the way from OC to be our special guest DJ this Thursday. Peter actually called me last week asking to DJ, because he loves the Firehouse (...and the Firehouse loves him back). Since he's driving all this way, he'll be DJing the "primetime" slot from 10-11p (and dancing the rest of the time). So stop on by and get a taste of Atomic right here in SD!

For those of you not familiar with Peter, here's an excerpt from his bio taken directly from atomicballroom.com:

Peter Flahiff has taught, performed and DJ'ed at swing dance camps and venues all over the country and around the world. He counts among his past instructors and teachers: Frankie Manning, Ryan Francois, Marcus and Baerbl, Audrey Wilson and members of the top Swedish Lindy Hop performance team The Rhythm Hot Shots. He has also been fortunate to...
