Seattle Weekly's Description

"We should just love each other as human beings! Please stop by and be a part of it," exclaims the man on the voicemail at Waid's Haitian Cuisine and Lounge. Waid's kitchen serves up Haitian cuisine until 10 p.m., highlighting rich dishes like Taso (marinated "goat bits" with onions, cloves and peppers) and Chiktay (salted cod), but stays open late into the evening with various events from reggae nights to hip-hop. On the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, Waid's hosts a jazz dance class, and both the entertainment and cringe factors are high.

Tips from foursquare

    Blues dancing every Tuesday. Try the open lesson for beginners and intermediates at 8 pm. Stay for the sexy time.

  • Cole A. on 03/02/10

    Say hi to Waid's! He is amazing and has the biggest heart in the world.
