NYE 2022: Concert, Dinner & Milonga

December 31, 2021

When 2021 started, we were still in isolation, sheltering in place to try to tamp down the raging pandemic.  As 2021 ends, the pandemic is ongoing, but vaccines have opened the door to a safe-enough way of gathering for many of us.  I am so grateful to be back dancing tango with all of you, hearing live music and even gathering to share food. We're going to do all three for an epic New Year's Eve celebration, which will take place at the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School.

Friday, December 31
6:30-7 pm: Arrive & mingle
7-8 pm: Concert by guitarist Patricio Chrome
8-9 pm: Prep food, mingle & dance
9-10:30 pm: Dinner: Asado by Matthew with side dishes by all of you
10:30 pm-1:30 am or later: Milonga with NYE toast

Tickets are very limited.  Buy yours now, if you'd like to attend.
