What better way to celebrate the good old U.SA. on the day after the 4th than with a Latin boogie dance party? Seriously. New York born-and-bred, Bugalu is an all-American mix of R&B, soul, mambo and son that first caught on with Nuyorican kids in the 1960s. Yes, there’s more to Latin rhythms than salsa and Fania Records. There will also be freshly made mojitos and mescal cocktails, along with Lady Go-Go’s homemade vegan Mexican food.
