3.  ONGOING Latin Nights

Bossa Bistro in DC has a Latin Night on Fridays with a live band.  DIT's Barb Bernstein teaches Salsa there on the second floor on from 9 to 10 pm on the first and third Fridays of each month.  Class members don't have to pay any cover for the open dancing afterwards.  Every Friday night there is a live Latin band and there's always a crowd for the open dancing.   Try out the drinks; the bartender is cool! Address:  2463---18th St. NW; Washington DC 20009.
