    Plan for your food-delicious, sway-and-sashay day now. It all makes merry over the final weekend of July 2018.

    IF YOU DIG DIPS, and you adore dancing, you can probably find some deep-down delicious joy by enjoying either. Like, if your friend invited you over to try his new salsa line-up, and you arrived to see five bowls filled to the brim with onion-y, chile-rich goodness, you'd be pretty stoked.

So many great acts'll will bring the tunes made for salsa dancing, so check out the line-ups and where to move, applaud dancers, and get into the spirit.
