How to Submit / Blog Rules

What I cover:  This blog focuses on swing dances in NYC or nearby vicinity (easily accessible by mass transit) with Lindy Hop, Balboa, Blues and Charleston, but not mixed ballroom or fusion events.  Please do not submit restaurants without a legitimate dance space without room for at least 3 couples.  
Workshops are posted at my discretion, mostly traveling instructors, as I don’t have time to post them all.   I have not been covering the Rainbow Room, as it’s out of the budget of most swing dancers.  
How to Submit:  If you wish to submit via email, please email thisweekinswingnyc(at)gmail(dot)com with WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and HOW MUCH.  Replace the at and dot with the appropriate symbols.   I will not post gigs without the band name listed.  I have stopped posting personal phone numbers as part of listings, to protect posters personal information.   If we are friends in real life, just send me a Facebook invite.  I’m not accepting friend requests from band leaders / managers I do not know.
Deadlines:  Submissions should come in no later than midnight on Thursday of each week, as we aim to publish once per week on Fridays.  Important note – I am VERY busy, so please try to get your FB event out in a timely fashion,  as I don’t guarantee if/when last minute updates will happen.
Important Notes:   These postings come from various Lindy calendars, message board postings, Facebook invites, and emails. If the information is public, I will post it and will only do revisions for critical details.  
No Argument Policy: Please note… organizers/band leaders, I do this for the swing community, I have no time for debates or disagreements, so I’m clearly spelling out what I will and will not do.  I’m very resource constrained, so I  will not debate or defend my decisions, as this as a free service for the swing community. 
Events are subject to change based on the event organizers, I catch as much as possible, but I can’t guarantee I’ll catch them all. If there’s any question, check with the event organizers.

    Just received an email from Allyson Briggs of Fleur Seule that the management at Row NYC is ending their Swinging Saturdays. Is there any way you can rally swing dancers to object and try to get management to change their mind?

    We met at Lincoln Center. I am a friend of Herb Sananman.

    Thanks for your time.

    • Hi Joan, Thanks for your note. I had heard about Fleur Seule. It’s a shame. Unfortunately, not all swing dancers support the venue at these free events. Without dancers patronizing the bar, these events tend to go away (it’s happened before). I wish I could do more to help. Best wishes, Eileen
