Posted by on 27 Jul 2016 | Tagged as: Alki Beach Parties: Casino on Cardboard

Let’s take advantage of the arrival of actual summer weather by dancing la vida loca at Alki Beach this Friday, July 29, 2016! Help celebrate Natalie’s birthday with her La Clave Cubana teammates by bringing food and drinks!

Where:
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.

When:
Set up by volunteers from 5:30-7 PM. Music and dancing begin by 7.

The festivities generally take place every Friday night all summer as long as it’s dry, at least through Labor Day weekend in September.

Bring:
Sunglasses, sunscreen, shoes you can get dirty, and maybe pack a jacket for sundown are great ideas. Bring food or drinks for the birthday party. Alchohol is not allowed at the public beach, but friends and passersby are always welcome.

Help wanted:
DJ using any device with a 1/8″ headphone jack!

We can always use volunteers to help set up between 5:30-7. Arriving early is also a great way to find a decent parking spot too! Leave a comment if you can volunteer to DJ, help set up, pack up, or transport the dance floor.

Each week we need new volunteers to transport the dance floor to/from Alki Beach. The job consists of picking up the dance floor on Friday 1 at Alki Beach at around 10 PM, storing it for the week, then dropping it back off at Alki beach on Friday 2 at around 6 PM. You don’t have to be at the beach the entire night, just in time to pick up and drop off the floor.

Plenty of volunteers will be available to help unload, assemble, disassemble, and load the floor each week. The trick is getting a good parking spot.

Transporters need at least as much trunk space as a compact SUV (Examples; Subaru Forrester, Toyota Rav 4, station wagons, minivans, vans, pick up trucks, or SUVs). The loaded flooring measures about 3′ W x 3′ D x 18″ H.

See you at the beach!

Unfortunately the weather turned cool and wet on us today. On the bright side, you can dance outside tomorrow instead, Saturday night at the Goodbye Seattle BBQ at Golden Gardens!

We should resume Casino on Cardboard at Alki Beach next Friday, July 29th.

Thanks to Dave, Katia, Marija, and Laszlo for volunteering to transport the dance floor from 7/22 to 7/29!

Alki Beach dancing continues tonight, July 8!
