    I am dominican and live in NJ, but have been travelling to CA for over 7 years on business trips. In that time I have met two dominicans, both in the Bay area. One of them ironically enough is from a town about 21KM from my town and knew many people I knew...

    While in the Bay area, I usually go to this spanish club downtown San Jose named "Club Miami". They play everything, including merengue and salsa, though no Bachata.

    I have not found a nice spanish -caribbean- club in LA. If you know of any and/or want to hang out, let me know. I am planning to be in LA on Nov 14th.

    Tranquilo Quieto!

    Hey you guys, I sent a message to a couple of you. I'm not Dominican and please don't be mad at me for jumping on your site! But I'm desperate to find a Dominican hairdresser in the LA area!!! I've called everywhere and I read in an earlier post someone said to call the embassy. I will do so if you all yell at me and kick me out! Thanks for any leads you can give!! Have a good day!! J

    There's an idea: A DOMINICAN SOCIAL CLUB- wouldn't it be nice if we could organize something like that in Los Angeles?

    i'm dominican, originally from nyc, but i recently began attending University of Southern California. i've encountered a lot of the same problems that all of you are naming here.

    i'm here at usc, so i'm around. =)

    Default hello

    dominicans of so california i have been here for a minute but i can totally relate with all your experiences. yet feel sooo mind boggled when i see some mexican or whoever dancing to merengue and bachata. lol my gosh yo there was a time when they thought u danced merengue by jumping up and down on each foot and spinning around/ haahahahhaa imagine that. lol but i know there is a Dominican Social and Cultural Center in Lawndale im not sure of the location. Your best bet would be also to check up with the Hollywood park Casino in FEB because they always use to have this dinner celebration for dominican independence but i dunno if its still going on but just check up/ also when the puerto rican parade thing comes rolling around in june you will find dominicans there thats like the only event to me where tons of them come out of the woodworks. it kinda sucks cuz we dont have a centralized community here like we have the Heightz or Brooklyn in NyC. But just keep an eye out most dominicans i have met live in West LA, Southeast ARea: bellflower,long beach, downey, south gate, lynwood, and Orange County i met a few also in Inland Empire like Ontario and Riverside area but still not enough to keep up with NY Numbers but regardless u meet one then u get exposed to a network.

    Just a head's up to all Dominicans in LA, I am doing my best to get with the city council here in Inglewood about a Dominican day festival. So, if you are in LA (Wherever) call up city hall and inquire. It will assist with the permits and possible sites.

    Also if you are on myspace hit me up at http://www.myspace.com/stoquito.
