I just moved from Germany to Newport News, VA, have been here for 3 weeks and we have tried out a couple of salsa venues. Well, we have not been excited so far. Went to Tropicana in Norfolk and to Amadeus Cafe in Newport News. The one in Norfolk had a younger party/drinking crowd and a small dancefloor. The Amadeus Cafe is a nice location but the music is really awful, more reggaeton than anything. So we are kind of disillusioned already. We love salsa and we hate to sit and wait over an hour - having to listen to merengue, bachata and over half an hour of blasting reggeaton - before we can dance another salsa. It is not worth the hassle. Better stay home and read a good book. Now I hope that there is somebody here who knows of a better place to go. DC is just too far, we will do that every now and then but cannot do it all the time.
