Best Deal This Week: 50 Cent Tapas with Free Salsa Lessons

"Salsa is a syncretic dance genre from Cuba, as the meeting point of European and African popular culture." -Wikipedia.

Zach and I have taken ballroom dancing lessons for a few months, including the Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, and Swing - but we have yet to try Salsa, although I would love to. The dance form just looks so spicy, sexy and fun. But, like most activities, Salsa dancing would be even more enjoyable, I am sure, if food was involved - especially food for under $1.

Masa Southwest Bar and Grill in Woburn gets me. The modern, upscale Mexican/Spanish eatery offers free Salsa lessons every Thursday night from 8 to 9:30 p.m., but the dance floor is open until midnight. All that hip shakin' will make you hungry, so Masa also serves up tapas at the bar for 50 cents (they're usually only a buck, though). Masa's tapas menu is lengthy and versatile, but options include Crisp Yucca Fries; Grilled Chorizo; and BBQ Slow Cooked Lamb Springrolls with Guajillo Bourbon BBQ Sauce. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to try out some Salsa moves, while getting to taste a number of Masa's small plate creations.
