Last year, one of the most fantastic and unique events of the year was Tango in the Castle, an Argentine Tango show, complete with drinks, professional performances, and a milonga (tango social) that is open for the public to dance tango. And it all takes place at Morningside Castle, which sports beautiful architecture and a Gothic look that makes the Tango that much more romantic and enjoyable.
Those of you who know me know that as a tango dancer I have been to many events in New York City. I say with total confidence that, whether you dance tango or not, this is not an evening to miss, especially with ticket prices as low as around $50.
