Dear Swing City Patrons!

This Week at Swing City: "Fat City Band"
FRIDAY at Huron Ave

This Friday we welcome back the "Fat City Band", who've gotten quite popular at Swing City over the last year or so since we discovered them. Expect some seriously swinging sets, and of course all your friends, fun, food, and dance frenzy!

Swing Dance lessons at Swing City

New to Swing Dancing or already an expert? No worries, we've got something for everyone!

Mike Jonas will be teaching the intermediate lesson this week. Karen Leeds returns to teach the beginner class. Both are at 7:45. Classes have been HUGE lately, so be sure to come for those. Beginner and intermediate levels are concurrent, so you can find a class that suits you and still bring your friends who might be at a different level. Plus, the classes are a GREAT way to meet people if you're new to the scene.

Swing City, the best weekly Swingin' venues in town!

- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Full Bar, ~$4 cocktails (at City Club venue only)
- Great Floors (one patron was giddy with excitement recently! thx)
- Easy "T" Access (at City Club venue only)

8:00pm: Beginner and Intermediate Swing Dance Lessons, no partner necessary.
9:00pm: Band goes on (DJ in the breaks)
until ~12:00am or when people leave

The great thing about the new intermediate lessons program is that the bulk of our regular dancers will be able to take a non-beginner class with our rotation of Boston's top dance instructors, while still being able to bring beginner friends for the intro lesson. The intro class will be single step East Coast, while the intermediate class will often be taught in triple-step and sometimes will include some Lindy and more. The intermediate class is different each week. Furthermore, if either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one can just switch to the other one as needed.

So please join us for lessons, a night of rich live music, dancing, lots of cool fun people of all ages, and some great exercise. Bottom line, a great night out for only $16 ($12 with college ID), the cheapest cocktails in town, and a super vibe! Read, "Boston's official Cheap Date."
