NEW LOCATION THIS FRIDAY! directions»
We'll be at the Somerville City Club near Sullivan
Square starting this week, and for a while certainly.
(i.e. there are several options we'd consider down the
road if they work out, but this is our new home for
We've been working feverishly with the club to do some
renovations, and I'm please to say that, though they
aren't completely done yet, the place looks great. Please
bear with us as the job gets finished up over the next
couple of weeks. The management is very glad to have
us there and it looks like it will be a great relationship.
The 'City Club is easier to get to than Springstep
or the Greek Church, and I'm glad to say it's only 3
blocks from the "Sullivan Square" MBTA stop
as well. It also has tons of parking, a full bar, and
all the amenities.
We sincerely hope to see you there!
Sept. 12: Shawn Hershey & The Fried
Plus Tony and Aurelie teaching and DJ'ing
Beginner's East Coast lesson at 7:30
Balboa/Fast Lindy with Mary Timmons
Workshop at 7:30
The new place is the Somerville City Club, at 20 Innerbelt
Road, Somerville (map).
It's adjacent to the Holiday Inn near Sullivan Square,
directly off I-93 and 3 blocks from the Orange Line. There
are also a ton of buses that come through, ample parking,
an "Annex", and of course... a FULL BAR. For
those that drove to the Greek Church from I-93, you probably
went right past it on Washington St. In fact it's only
a little over a mile away and about three miles down the
highway from Springstep.
