Grand Opening review

October 20, 2010

Hey all!
Thank you SO much to the 80+ dancers rockin’ the Grand Opening of Where’s Westie last night!

And for those of you who had ‘r’a’i’n d’e’l’a’y’s’ that came in after the first hour set … you missed some sik new music to dance west coast swing to. We had a packed floor of dancers by 9:15pm! Thanks to all who showed the ‘early support love’!

The first 60 dancers that came in got their Where’s Westie Mix Tape #1 (on CD of course).
If you didn’t get one – either because you weren’t one of the first – OR – hey! – you don’t live anywhere close to California, no worries.

We’re putting out a free podcast that you’ll be able to download with the WW Mix Tape #1 on it.
Podcast info coming soon, be sure to check back here.

Special thanks to:
• Tara Cardinal for working the front door
• Ben & Malia for cruising up from OC in the rain – Ben used to host the weekly Skinny’s night for several years – SoCalSwingDance
• Kevin Hahn for volunteering his photography services
• Billy Snow for braving traffic early and dropping off Ben’s dance floor for the back room
• Eric & Rob at Skinny’s for being 2 cool dudes (
• Elizabeth for bringing the fan.
