The second Tuesday of every month is Alma del Tango night at La Loggia in San Anselmo.
Tangueros come to dance, and diners thrill to the music and special performance by Alma del Tango’s Debbie Goodwin and John Campbell, or guest dancers.
On Tuesday, January 14, Debbie and John electrified the crowd. Tango student Deborah Loft was in the audience that night and writes: “Congratulations on an especially fine performance at La Loggia. I thought you both reached a new level, and from the applause, I could tell that everyone else thought so, too.”
She went on to say, “I was thinking about what made it so special. I realized one element was that you chose to dance to a non-tango piece—When I’m 64 — and that besides the whimsy and unconventionality which opened up new possibilities, the song was in English (and well-known), so that we could see you responding to the ‘text’ (as we opera-goers say).”
La Loggia Vinoteca and Cafe is Italian-inspired but features local wines and delectables. For these special evenings of tango, they also offer Argentine wines.
