A sock-hop cure to the Monday blues, Sam's Burger Joint offers a Swing Nite at the beginning of the week for seasoned lindy-hoppers and Charleston beginners alike. Presented by the San Antonio Swing Dance Society, the evening begins at 7 p.m. with lessons from dance aficionado and DJ Ben Luhrman. At 8 p.m., the music hall opens up for the full swinging affair, varying in style depending on the band. From trad jazz to Western swing to rockabilly, Sam's Swing Nite is a new experience every week, with the common thread of keeping this dance culture alive and active in SA. Tuesday through Sunday, Sam's plays host to some of the strongest Americana and rock 'n' roll coming through the city, with a bitchin' set of speakers to pipe the tunes through. 330 E. Grayson St., (210) 223-2830,
