Haunted Casino Milonga


Let's have some fun while we raise money for the Scholarship Fund! The "Haunted Casino Milonga!" is tomorrow, October 31! Yes, 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Halloween night!

Your $20 donation at the door gets you $1000 in Casino chips -- and he or she with the most casino chips at the end of the night wins the grand prize of a PRIVATE LESSON with guest MAESTROS LIZ and YANNICK VANHOVE (2012 European Stage & Salon Tango Champions, coming to Tango by the River November 8-10, 2013). Come in costume and get an extra $500 in chips!

Casino games include: Rest in Pieces Roulette, Texas Hold 'Em (Til They Die), 21 to Tango, and Comme il Craps.

We will be brewing up two special concoctions of Ghoulish Gangrene punch and Quinine Quencher. We will also have such tasty appetizers as fried bat wings and bloody lady fingers.

If you've been DYING to get away from all the little goblins on Halloween, come and join a group of deliciously undead as we dance the night away and support a good cause.

At Tango by the River, we believe it is important to the health and growth of our tango community to help worthy young people make that first trek to the mecca for tango: Buenos Aires. We therefore make every effort to raise the funds needed to cover their airfare and hotel expenses so they can experience Buenos Aires firsthand. Our event tomorrow night, the HAUNTED CASINO MILONGA, is a fundraiser for this scholarship fund. Please help us raise the money to bring Nicholas Washington with us to Buenos Aires in March. Even if you can’t attend tomorrow night’s event, please consider making a donation. Go to rivertango.com to make a donation now.

      Hi Jetta, We lead a tango tour to Buenos Aires every other year, and we bring one deserving young tango dancer (who wouldn't be able to go otherwise) with us as our scholarship recipient. We raise the money by planning extra tango parties/events for the tango community, so everyone wins. The full criteria can be found on our website at this link: http://www.rivertango...­

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
