How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Although they describe the event as some of everything, if you plan to be there for more than an hour there's not much to do other than dance. It really focused around dancing and, at least on Friday April 6 had dance lessons specializing in singles mixing, so if you're open to those things it will be great for you. They had a food truck offering dinner, and a few different food vendors offering free samples (that week it was chocolate). However, the "outdoor heated patio" was in fact an outdoor UN-heated patio, so you'll want to spend most of your time inside, which offers several bar spaces with casual seating, along with the dance floor. They do offer a coat check which I believe was about $3, and everything there was cash-only, which became a problem for some people because their ATM is apparently chronically broken. I think it was worth the low Goldstar price for the fun dance instructors (salsa about 7:30, bachata about 8:30 lessons build on each other throughout the month, so the first week of each month is the most basic) and festive atmosphere, and parking on the street was free although probably not the most secure. A live band was scheduled to start at 10 but we left when they hadn't started yet about 10:30; I would go back with a bigger group of friends and stay late dancing.
