It's 4-something on Friday morning as I type these words. Got home a while ago after hanging out at Bodega with a couple of flamenco friends. My favorite bartender Sachi was working and of course she kept our glasses constantly filled with sangría. Good times! :-)
It's been at least a few weeks (probably close to a month) since my last blog post. I've been busy, what can I say? Oh well...better late than never, right? Anywayz, here are some random pics from the most recent juerga at Bodega.

Turned out that a group of Spaniards from Málaga were having dinner and when they passed by the patio and noticed me and my flamenco friends having a little juerga they decided to crash our party...

As usual, Hector and Naíto aka Los Jovenes Flamencos kept the party energy going with almost non-stop cante.

It has become a tradition for a few friends and I to head over to Johnny Rockets for some late night nourishment—mostly to soak up the numerous pitchers of sangría from a few hours earlier. :-)

By popular demand, I'll keep on hosting juergas at Bodega but obviously as it gets colder we'll have to make some adjustments: either moving the party indoors or dropping a hint with the management to purchase some industrial strength outdoor space heaters. Stay tuned for updates!
In other news: this Saturday November 8th, I'll be performing with dancer Flor Pérez Taboada and singer Naíto in a fundraiser concert to benefit Red House Tanzania. It's for a good cause. Please come if you can!
The same evening, dancer/teacher/choreographer Ulrika Frank and guitarist/singer Marija Temo will be giving a workshop titled Flamenco Completo.
Hopefully I'll publish another blog entry in a couple of days, stay tuned!
