Modesto Tango Bulletin, August 16, 2010
Even in Buenos Aires an opportunity for dining and dancing with live music is a rare treat. Our October milonaga will be this year's premiere tango event. The Mario Parmisano Trio from Buenos Aires tours throughout the world playing tango music with wonderful jazz musicians. Be sure to check out their videos. Their most recent promotional video is our Video of the Week.
Don't miss tonight's practica at Jacobs. It is a great opportunity to experience tango in an informal, friendly, and supportive setting.
