The Houston Tango Festival 3° :: This Weekend

It's not too late to book a flight or pack your bags and jump in the car for a tango road trip - more fun and environmentally friendly with a carload.

You know what they say about Texas - everything is bigger and better. Not arrogant. Just true.

Throw caution to the wind.

Just do it.

Dear friends,

The Houston Tango Festival will start in 2 days. Please find attached an overview of the Milongas and Practicas.

Many hugs,
Antje [and Mikas]
