OK, the Christmas Spirit has got me, my tree is up and looking delightful, and I was having a little fantasy about what it would be like to Tango this Christmas in Buenos Aires, and came across the following...
Christmas Eve Tango Dinner in Buenos Aires
Celebrate an unforgettable Christmas Eve in Buenos Aires, capital of Tango. Tango is present in every corner of the city and it is an integral part of the customs of its inhabitants.
The ritual of Tango is more than a musical composition, a dance, or an instrumental and vocal performance. It is a passionate way of feeling and experiencing life and the world.
In the heart of San Telmo, this historically restored building has become a highlight of the cultural scene of Buenos Aires. La Ventana is a journey back in time. Its historical interior has been conserved and provides the perfect stage for this unique event.
The Grand Juan D'Arienzo Orchestra and a Quintet will join two tango singers, six dance couples, and a traditional dance company, with a total of 32 artists on stage.

7:30pm - Gathering at Hotel lobby and transfer to Gala Tango
