This year, our sixth Foggy Moon Weekend, will be the best yet!
Come dance to the double-header fabulous Stringrays and Syncopaths, and to the calling of Lisa Greenleaf and Susan Petrick.
You don't want to miss any of the fun as we inaugurate our first weekend at the Monterey YMCA, an historic World War II-era USO wooden dance hall.

As our decorations maven Bowen Lee put it: everyone always wants to know about Steinbeck Country. What is it, and where? Well, it's right where we love to dance!
Which is your favorite Steinbeck novel? The lush settings of his novels surround us here in Monterey County, from the Gavilan Mountains of The Red Pony and the Santa Lucias of The Pastures of Heaven to East of Eden in the Salinas Valley, to Cannery Row itself, the continued existence of which is due to that novel's success.
Who is your favorite Steinbeck character? From The Red Pony and The Pearl, to East of Eden, Cannery Row, and of course The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck captured recognizably human characters and filled with longings and sorrows, virtues and shortcomings. Is it Tom Joad, Doc Ricketts, or Dora? Perhaps young Jody with his pony? Or could it be George from Of Mice and Men, or Kino in The Pearl?
On Saturday night, let your inner character out on the dance floor, as Bowen's hand-painted Steinbeck Country murals whirl as we swing!
To keep you in good shape to keep on dancing the entire weekend, we suggest that you reserve your MASSAGE with Touch of TLC and our fabulous masseuse Sylvia. She will be offering massages Saturday 4pm-8:30pm and Sunday 6:30pm-10pm, in quarter-hour blocks, at $1 per minute.

This year is shaping up to our best Foggy Moon yet, with some of my very favorite bands and callers! We look forward to more time spent dancing and eating out with friends, more great memories from our comfortable hall with its breathtaking views, our endless snack table in the lounge, where you can relax and visit, and even enjoy watching and listening to the action in the hall on our bigscreen TV (try it, it's shockingly hypnotic).
We will be sharing news of this year's event as it happens. Check back later when we will share:
See you on the dance floor in November!
