Tango y Mucho Mas en Mardel
The "season" in Mar Del Plata is soon beginning--January and February. Ruben and I went down in November to check things out.
Our waiter who doubled as a tanguero.
These photos above are from the Friday night milonga, Chiqué, in the Centro de Castilla y Leon, Hipolito Yrigoyen 2067. We arrived at 10:30 and the class was still going on. This is rather a small salon, though, and gets quite crowded in the season, so getting there early might be a good idea.
Other Milonga options in Mar Del Plata are
Thursdays & Sundays at 9:00 p.m.
Saturdays at 10:00 p.m.
155-606991 or 155-417792
Our friend Raimundo loaned us his beach house, and once again, Ruben played "survivorman," but this time it was easy.
But really, the best thing about our getaway was meeting and lunching with another expat I've only known by email, the beautiful and sweet fellow-blogger Katie Alley from nearby Necochea, who came in to Mardel to lunch with me at the Club de Pescadores on the pier.
