NYE 2022: Concert, Dinner & Milonga

When 2021 started, we were still in isolation, sheltering in place to try to tamp down the raging pandemic. As 2021 ends, the pandemic is ongoing, but vaccines have opened the door to a safe-enough way of gathering for many of us. I am so grateful to be back dancing tango with all of you, hearing live music and even gathering to share food. We’re going to do all three for an epic New Year’s Eve celebration, which will take place at the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School.

Friday, December 31
6:30-7 pm: Arrive & mingle
7-8 pm: Concert by guitarist Pato Chrome
8-9 pm: Prep food, mingle & dance
9-10:30 pm: Dinner: Asado by Matthew with side dishes by all of you
10:30 pm-1:30 am or later: Milonga with NYE toast. DJ Craig Herrington.

Tickets are very limited. Buy yours now, if you’d like to attend.

$70 - I will simply attend.
$60 - I will attend and bring a side dish or bottle of wine/champagne
$50 - I will attend and bring a side dish AND bottle of wine/champagne

This event, like all our events, requires proof in advance of full vaccination status. Your registration is not confirmed until you send your vaxx card to meredithklein@gmail.com. If you already have done so, you don’t have to do it again.

Due to an anticipated winter / holiday Covid surge, we will ask everyone to additionally submit a photo of a negative result on a Covid rapid test, taken on the same day as the event. We recommend the BinaxNOW test, produced by Abbott.

Pre-registration & proof of full vaccination required.
