Milongas are social events where people dance tango. They are a great way to meet people, enjoy a special night, and put into practice what is learned in dance classes and private lessons. They're fun even if one doesn't dance tango and other popular dances. Just listening to the music, watching the dancers twirl around the floor and meeting new people make the party a great opportunity to enjoy Argentina's most famous import. Dress up a bit. Expect some nice refreshments. Bring a few friends. Make it a night out!
