ITALIAN SALSA: Italian and Latin cultures infused? Mamma Mia!

It’s a night with live dance jams, pumping salsa, merengue, timba, bachata and more. Be there at 8 p.m. for your free salsa lesson and then show off your skills the rest of the night. It’s a perfect way to spice up your Friday nights.
APPRECIATE THE ARTS: Show off your inner artiste at the Swift Gallery grand opening.

The event will last from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will also feature free open artist studios, galleries and performances.
GET A LITTLE BIT COUNTRY: Don’t be afraid to fall Off the Wagon in Ocean Beach tonight. There will be real, live country music at Dreamstreet Live, playing the tunes of some country legends like George Strait, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. It’s a $5 cover and worth every dollar if you’re looking to “Boot-Scootin’-Boogie” the night away.
