Spend an Enchanted Evening at a Real Live Argentine Tango Cafe- Right Here In Boston’s Own South End: June 7th, Tuesday (8:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.)
Ever wonder what an evening out at an Argentine tango cafe would be like? Well, come discover the answer at the first ever Tango Cafe: a Night in Buenos Aires. For one special night the Beehive will be transformed into a real live tango cafe, complete with professional dance performances throughout the evening to the sounds of The Beehive Tango Orchestra. These talented musicians and dancers from Boston’s Longy School of Music will make you feel as if you have actually traveled to Argentina for the evening! What fun indeed.
In addition to all of this fine ethnic music and dance, guests will also have an opportunity to sample some Argentinean inspired cuisine as well. Native offerings include empanadas (bread or pastry dough containing meat, vegetables, or fruit fillings) and gaucho steak accompanied by Chimichurri sauce (a mixture of parsley, garlic, vegetable or olive oil, white or red vinegar, and red pepper flakes). The Beehive will be serving their regular menu throughout the evening as well. Drink specials, or “libations” as they are called in Argentina, will be offered all evening long, many of which will serve to highlight the Milagro tequilas, one of the regions finest labels. Reservations are highly recommended for this event, so I think it is indeed safe to say that this should prove to be a popular choice for a highly entertaining evening out on the town in “Buenos Aires, Massachusetts”.
When: June 7th, Tuesday (8:00 p.m. – Midnight)
Food will be served (5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.)
Where: The Beehive (South End)
Admission: No cover listed
