Bomberos y Bohemios

By Tangocherie
Once in a while we get out of our rut of attending our favorite milongas, and recently we went to two that I've never attended, although Ruben has. As a matter of fact, many years ago he used to organize a milonga at one of them.
So we went to the Milonga de Elsita at Plaza Bohemia (5-10 p.m., Fridays, 2540 Alsina) one dark and stormy night with some students. Even though it was pouring down rain (outside and inside) there were lots of familiar faces on the floor, some I hadn't seen in ages. The level of dancing was quite high. The ambiance was cozy and warm, and Elsita very welcoming. My only complaint besides the leaking ceiling was the floor, of course made worse by the water. It is very hard tile.

On Saturday night after attending Los Consagrados we went to Bomberos de Lanus (Bld. Gral. Rodriquez 1039. Lanus E), actually in the firehouse. I've always wanted to go there as firemen are my heroes. (Unfortunately none of the firemen attend the milonga!) This salon is where Ruben used to organize a milonga many years ago. This is a typical club de barrio where everyone knows each other and dance lots of cumbia and merengue as well as tango; not a place to attend solo in hopes of cabeceo'ing partners. The floor is wonderful, like in Lo de Celia; not wood but smooth tile to glide over.

As we were leaving, the alarm rang, and a couple of minutes after these photos were taken, these guys were in full action! (Sorry to report that they don't have a fire pole that they slide down on.) Bravo, fellas. Let us know when you dance tango in your nice salon next door!
