9:45 p.m. Salsa Mia
Bliss comes in many forms, and no weekend here is complete without a taste of the nightlife. I head to the Yuca Lounge on Lincoln Road, home to salsa classes on Friday and Sunday nights. Instructors from the dance company Salsa Mia teach the
footwork and timing of Cuban salsa here.
"People come to unwind, have a good time, and learn a few steps,” says Salsa Mia’s owner Susan Fisher. Dancers are divided into groups based on ability. As the evening goes on, the music gets louder, and locals and visitors gather in this communal experience of rhythm, dance, and celebration.
Salsa Mia at the Yuca Lounge: 501 Lincoln Road; (305) 987-3033. Classes are at 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Sundays; prices start at $18.
