  4. Brian, I like to try different dance venues. I clicked the Killer Shrimp Yacht Club in Marina Del Rey on your calendar ( JAN 17th ) and there was no web site link for the event. I tried to look up the Killer Shrimp Yacht Club on the internet
    and came up empty. The closest I got was Killer Shrimp Restaurant and Bar in Marina Del Rey. I am just trying to confirm the correct location for the event as there was no flyer or address. Would you please provide some clarification about this event?

    Thank you, Jim

    1. Hi Jim,

      Thanks for the message! Like many Swing events, this one didn’t have a website. It only had a Facebook event which seems to have been deleted. So, I’ve deleted it from the calendar until we hear if it is really going to happen. If it does, it would be at the bar in Marina del Rey that you mentioned.

      Thanks,
      Brian
