Hey guys!
I am totally pumped about Lula! I am teaching till 9:45, but will definitely make an effort to come. Do we know who is the live band?? Don;t they have Cafe Cubano?

As for the band, it is called Conjunto La-ca-lu:
Conjunto La-ca-lú is one of Toronto’s newest salsa bands. Rooted in the Cuban sonora tradition, this group couples a dynamic three-trumpet horn section with a rhythm section featuring Afro-Cuban hand percussion, piano, bass, and tres. This particular instrumentation allows the group to achieve a classic sound while being sufficiently versatile to appeal to the myriad tastes of their contemporary audience. Conjunto La-ca-lú’s repertoire borrows heavily from its predecessors—such as Conjunto Clasico—yet also includes a number of original arrangements of salsa and pop standards as well as a growing catalogue of original compositions. Conjunto La-ca-lú! is co-directed by pianist Sean Bellaviti and percussionist Luis “Luisito” Orbegoso, and features some of this city’s most talented and hard working musicians. Whether you’re a salsa enthusiast or dance fanatic, it is likely that Conjunto La-ca-lú will be you’re #1 live music choice!

I have only been to Lula Lounge a half dozen times in the past few years..do to the location , but I must admit..I love the atmosphere this place gives off. The look, the colours and even the "feel". When I have danced here, I have found that I lose myself more into the music and the dance..not to many places can do that for me. It is not that I can not find that in other places but Lula Lounge has a style that seems to fit more to what I want to find when I go dancing.

Let the Passion flow...

Parking there is brutal, though...
Anyone willing to carpool from Finch subway, or, dare I ask, from Richmond Hill?

The parking is very difficult to find there, I agree. Be prepared to walk a distance if you are lucky to find a spot. Best way to get there probably TTC or car-pool.

Yes, we can all agree that parking can be difficult for Lula Lounge...but not impossible. The furthest I have ever had to walk to the club is 3 blocks. Plenty of street parking and side street parking, you just might have to walk abit : }

Still well worth the effort to go to Lula Lounge. Live band dancing is way more absorbing as a dancer and of course we all like to hang out together with the TDS crew!!!

I agree. It is worth the walk because this is a really nice place and the live band is such a treat! I hope to see you all there.

Maybe the 1030 arrival time is a little late to get to Lula..Especially with everyone doing coat and boot checks. Try getting there earlier, maybe for the TDS lesson or, enjoy the dinner deal that Lula is offering.

Also remember that last time it was open to the public. This time they have closed the club just for us until 11:30 so as long as you come before then you should be fine. Remember the earlier you come the better it is so do the class at 9pm or, as Mark suggested, enjoy a dinner there and then you can really enjoy the band!

I have classes until 10 PM but I will try to make it there after that. I can't miss the live band either.
