#220: Cuba Libre
It’s a great place to go dancing, they have decent mojitos (though not the best ones) and it’s a very cool name. It lets people say things like “Here we are today at Cuba Libre” and get some laughs out of a mostly Hispanic room. It’s also one of two Latin dancing places that’s stumbling distance from the metro, which explains my next point.
Cuba Libre is also the place where everyone’s latino ex-boyfriends are dancing on Saturday night. Everyone’s. All my friends’ exboyfriends. My exboyfriend. Everyone.
