Happy Anniversary, La Milonga de los Consagrados
Everyone knows that on Saturday afternoons, Ruben and I are always to be found at Region Leonesa (Humberto Primo 1462) at the milonga where we first danced together, exactly six years ago this month. Last Saturday night was their big anniversary celebration, and in a way, it was our anniversary too.
El Region Leonesa in all it's glory, jammed-packed and happy, with the fantastic orchestra of Ernesto Franco playing on stage.
With the maestro himself.
With Gerry y Lucia, who also performed.
Irene and Man Yung from Toronto were visiting.
Our table was full of flowers: (from right) Gail, Barbara, Flo, Else, me
(Thanks to Gerry y Lucia for some of the photos.)
We had fun!
The organizer, Myriam Rosich, who, along with her brother Daniel (below) took over the milonga last year upon the death of their father, Enrique Rosich. (Enrique would be very, very proud.)
Los Dos Danys celebrated their birthdays, but also Dany Borelli, the best DJ in Buenos Aires, was inaugurated as the new DJ of Los Consagrados. Daniel Rosich, brother of Myriam, is the organizer.
Ruben y Marcela, organizers of Nuevo Chique on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Marcela took the video above.)
Photographer Gail Miller was snap-happy.
