Please join us for Club Mandalay as as we pay a “Living History” homage to the Grand Nightclubs of Historic Manilatown with Dancing, Live Music, Poetry, Fashion and Refreshments on Sunday, October 18th at the I-Hotel Manilatown Center (868 Kearny Street, San Francisco)
Benito Santiago‘s Beginning Ballroom & Latin Dance at 12Noon provides a safe, fun space for social dancers to learn and practice Ballroom and Latin dance basics, with or without a partner.
The fun continues at 2pm when we explore the rich musical, literary, fashion and cultural history of the San Francisco Bay Area with Carlos Zialcita as he proudly hosts the Jazz Meryenda Pop-up Jazz Club. Jazz Meryenda features its house band, the I-Hotel Jazztet, poet Tony Robles, stylist Ofelia Navarro and culinary artists Carmen Choy and Bogberry Bakery as they invite the community to celebrate a specific decade from Manilatown’s history. And this month we’re also excited to be sharing the stage with Latin dance band Calle Ocho!
So come decked out in your favorite 1960s-inspired fashions this October 18th and help us bring Manilatown History alive!
