It’s summer in Houston and that means that the humidity is knocking at the door.

Salsa Nights are back with Mixers & Elixirs!

dancing-under-dinosaurs-3Last Friday, hundreds of Houstonians gathered to kick off the 2009 Mixers & Elixirs season with Grady Gaines & the Texas Upsetters. As people packed the dance floor, we boogied down to the soulful tunes that Grady and his band belted out.

This week, join the party as our popular Mixers salsa series kicks off! TropiCrew will be rocking the house with salsa, bachata, meringue, cumbia and reggaeton. They have a very full sound and phenomenal vocals and are sure to bring some fierce heat to the dance floor. If you love a cold cocktail and a hot dance partner, live music and delicious snacks, Mixers is THE place to be this summer.

Tickets are $15 non-members, $13 members. Mixers & Elixirs is every Friday night 6/5 – 8/28 (except July 3)  from 6 – 10 p.m. Check out our lineup! Don’t miss the new addition of the Audi Lounge in our Grand Entry Hall so you can get comfy while you get to know that cutie you met under the T-Rex!

Hitting this scene is a sure sign of intelligence!
