Nuevo Chiqué




NOTE: As of December 1, Chiqué will also be open on Tuesday afternoons as well as Thursdays.











With the organizers Ruben y Marcela.





Posing with Guillermo Thorpe of Diostango magazine.








It was quite a while ago since Ruben and I last danced in Chiqué on Thursdays. When we returned a couple of weeks ago, it was as if time had stood still. The salon at Casa Galicia was jammed with the same old friends we hadn't seen in forever. We're going to try to make it there more often.














Santiago Major keeps watch over the dancers.











Nuevo Chiqué in the Casa Galicia, San Jose 224 (near Alsina)
Thursdays 4-11 p.m.

Hi Johanna,

Maybe he's a Tucumano too!

Cherie, thanks for checking in on my blog and telling me about afternoon milongas. I hope we make it back to Buenos Aires someday. We loved the city and the people. We stayed in a little B&B on Mansilla and the family was so kind to us.
