Birthday of Gay Fallows
Gay returns to Firehouse in between
extensive world travels with her husband and our dear friend, Walter
Monteblanco. We are thrilled to have her whenever we can. Gay has
been a Firehouse friend for years, and we are always happy to
celebrate with her. Walter will start the birthday dance, and then
all of the Firehouse milongueros will join in.
Walter, as usual, will bring a
fabulously delicious cake and bottles of champagne that will
disappear very quickly.

June 8, Sue in
San Francisco and June 22nd in the Hamptons
Twice this month, I will play
hooky. June 8th I'm passing up Firehouse for my granddaughter
Amanda's high school graduation, and on the 22nd, I'll be in the
Hamptons. Fortunately, I can leave my baby (That would be
Firehouse Tango) worry free because I have incredible friends
who are more than willing and able to keep the Firehouse fires
burning brightly. Please support our wonderful back-up team.
The logistics - The A
Terri Lopez (Wonder(ful) Woman) and
Steve Turi (aka Superman) have generously offered to head up our
milonga logistics team in addition to their normal invaluable
weekly help. The tasks involved in running Firehouse are
monumental, and we are incredibly fortunate to have so many
fabulous friends willing to step in whenever needed.
But What about the
Music? Johnny Tablada DJ's
Not to worry. While we are away,
your tangos, milongas and valses will be spun by fabulous guest
DJ, Johnny Tablada. Many of our tangueras have had the pleasure
of dancing with Johnny, who comes to Firehouse every Thursday.
Now, you can enjoy listening to his incredible music, as well.
I promise you will not be disappointed. Johnny has an amazing
and extensive knowledge of Argentine Tango.
How about the
This Firehouse Tango newsletter has
been published nearly every week since March, 2002 and thanks to
Fran and Pat, the next two weeks will be no exception.
Among his countless talents, our
remarkable instructor, Fran Chesleigh, is a professional
writer. As always when I am out, he and his equally
extraordinary assistant, Pat Altman, flawlessly and with a style
of their own, take over the task of writing the Firehouse Tango
newsletter. I will send his handiwork out when I return.
This awesome duo is usually found
at “Fran’s Table” in the alcove closest to the DJ table. They
are always happy to answer your Tango questions or show you how
to do something you might have missed, so make sure to take
advantage of this wonderful opportunity to learn from the
