Canceling Casino on Cardboard at Alki Beach tonight

Posted by on 12 Jun 2015 | Tagged as: Alki Beach Parties: Casino on Cardboard

From Izzy

Sorry amigos, but we’re canceling Casino on Cardboard at Alki Beach tonight June 12, 2015. Ismael is a bit under the weather today and isn’t well enough to take on setup duty. Although the sun has started to peek through the clouds, it would have been chilly along the water tonight since Seattle is expected to hit a high temperature of only 66 degrees today. Historically we’ve gotten low turnouts on cooler days like today. It’s best to just cancel the event tonight, let Ismael recover, and wait until next Friday to come out blazin’.
Thank you all for coming out in strong numbers last weekend! The turnout was impressive for the first dance of the season especially with such short notice.

2015 Casino on Cardboard starts tomorrow!

Alki 7-18-14Hola amigos! We’re starting this year’s summer Casino on Cardboard season of dances on Alki Beach this Friday, June 5, 2015! All you need to do is bring your shiny, smiling face, be ready to dance the day away, and maybe bring a jacket for after sundown. Bring snacks or drinks, if you’re really inspired.

You’ll find the dance floor right on the sandy beach at Alki at approximately 2501 Alki Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116, across the street from Duke’s Chowder House near 58th Ave SW. Music and dancing begin by 7. Volunteers are encouraged to come earlier to help set up (and find a decent parking spot)! The festivities will generally take place every Friday night it’s dry at least through Labor Day weekend in September. We’ll see you on the dance floor on the sandy shores of Alki Beach!
