    Tango Class.Once you get enthusiasm , I can arrange a tango class.
    Before coming to the TANGO WORLD please read the rules:TIME TO GO: Many dancing couples share the milonga dance floor. To dance without bumping into each other, you should choose – either you get there early or leave late.
    CLOTHES: It is necessary to have some of the following elements of the basic: Tango Kit:An extra T-shirt or shirt, hairdressing (for a retouch), an extra pair of socks, make up (for a retouch), dancing shoes (in a bag), a pair of heelless shoes (to rest), talcum powder for the soles (in case the dance floor is not slippery enough).
    MEN...HOW TO INVITE A WOMAN...How to invite a woman to dance.The milonguero has two options:- Cabeceo (nodding). The man and the woman look at each other, and only if she continues to stare him out, he will very delicately nod to her.- The boldest method: the milonguero approaches the table where the woman chosen is sitting and invites her to dance.
    WOMEN....HOW TO BE INVITED BY MEN...What to do to be invited to dance.First, you’ve got to put on your dancing shoes. Then, sit looking at the dance floor with your legs slightly extended so that a man may stumble on your feet. This is how the encounter (and invitation) occurs.

    ARGENTINIAN FOOD AND WINE TASTING

    As a big cosmopolitan city you will have many restaurants. There are some of them very famous becuase they publish adds or appear in travel agencies or magazines. There are others that are more for locals or just for food that is more typical in the North of the country (provinces like Salta or Jujuy)

    Options:

    RESTAURANTS OF BA:
    Beef/Meat:   In famous restaurants where is needed to make a reservation probably. Also in other restaurants in cool areas where locals go. Also in other restaurants called "bodegones"very typical to go with friends and share the food after a football game or just for women or a family meetingl.
    Enjoy the best beef of the world!
    Ask for a "bife de chorizo" or "lomo" or share an "asado" , whatever is delicious, I can guarantee that!

    Regional Food:  This is typical for the North. Enjoy the "empanadas" or the "locro" with a nice music called "folklore argentino" (country music)

    WINE TASTING FOR YOU AND YOUR GROUP


    Argentinian wine is well known. The Argentinian wine is the "Malbec" but there are new players in the wine market (investors) who made a wonderful job and then there are many other wines that are word known.
    Why don`t you discover part of this in a funny way?
    I have all the schedule to go to a wine taste group but not always there is one.

    I will plan when we can get one or we can arrange a private wine taste. I have many contacts to make you enjoy the wine of Argentina (from Mendoza, Salta, San Juan, Neuquèn).

    Don´t worry, you will not get drunk! just happy.

    I can go with you or  you can go by yourself
