Mandrágora Tango is celebrating Barack Obama's Inauguration by throwing an Inagural Ball on the evening of January 20,
the first day of Obama's administrations (and the first day of George Bush's unemployment). We've rented out Patrick's Cabaret (3010 Minnehaha Ave in South Minneapolis) for the evening. This event is not just for Tango dancers: we are inviting everyone who has a reason to celebrate. Doors will open at 7:30 for a free introductory tango lesson. Mandrágora will take the stage at 9 for a joyous evening of dancing. We will play and DJ a wide variety of styles (swing, funk, latin, etc...) to get everyone up and moving, regardless of whether they can dance or not. This will be a night to celebrate. We are asking for a $10 donation at the door. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to John McCain's favorite charity, ACORN*
* I'm being facetious. John McCain hates ACORN. ACORN registers minorities to vote and the McCain campaign claimed that they are "destroying the fabric of democracy", whatever that means.
