•We will celebrate some May Birthdays…This will be fun. I am not going to reveal whose birthday/s we are celebrating, but the occasion will be worth it
•Newly designed playlist, and a radical way of looking at the Cortinas – (The bridge between tango sets)
•100+ roses rather than the 50+ we had last time. I am still working on why 100, but think I am onto something:)
