This summer people have caught dance fever.
Jazz in the City 2011 continued last night with a concert near Skiddy Park featuring the sounds of Salsa Son Timba and dancing in the streets.

If you get 45-minutes for lunch,or are on a short flight, read Anything You Want by Derek Sivers. I read this book today and will add it to my ongoing Personal M.B.A. reading list.

La Casita Cultural Center (LCCC) held an open house tonight with a show to celebrate the work of Latin American artists living in Syracuse. The gallery is located on the first floor of the Lincoln Supply Building on Otisco Street. Artists represented heritage from Cuba, Columbia, Mexico and Puerto Rico. According to Juan Cruz, artist in residence for the Near West Side Initiative, the goal was to create a space to showcase artists working in our city. He said he hopes the show “Motifs, Evocations,” will travel to other venues as well. “Motifs…” will be at LCCC thru September.
