Every Monday night gets Latin active at Hamburger Mary’s in downtown Long Beach. That’s when the LGBT club on Pine Avenue transforms into Margarita Mary’s. Readying for a true burger baile, two-for-one deals on their namesake food last until 10 p.m. After that, drag queen star hostess Bella Farrow takes over with the raucous Latin Divas of Long Beach drag show. Drink specials on margaritas (of course), micheladas, and coronas help ensure revelers stay loose on the dance floor while DJ Smuckers spins las tortillas into the night with the best Spanish-language Latin jams. There’s no better way to start the workweek than by keeping the weekend raging. Just remember, when it comes to Latin dancing, it’s all in the hips.
