Dining with a Large Group
Dining with a large group can prove problematic but I have managed to pull it off in Buenos Aires for years. The Flyer Talk group is normally over 25 people sometimes more. Calling ahead and telling restaurants about the whole "group" dynamic gives them a chance to oraganize a private room or to section off a space in the restaurant. Dining with a large group normally means you will be eating earlier than normal; so the group will not interfere with the restaurants normal dinner crowd.
The only problem I have ever experience was on this last trip with people not paying towards their meal. It became an issue on two of our dinner experiences but fortunately the rest of the group kicked in extra to make up for the "bad" apples.

Milongas - Nights of Argentine Tango
Milonga, 'tango party', is a place or an event where tango is danced; people who frequently go to milongas are sometimes called milongueros. There are endless varieties of milongas available throughout the city every day, with a greater concentration on weekends. Each milonga has its own style, ambient and clientele. Most of them often begin with dancing classes and many have presentations by professional performance dancers. Three to five songs are usually played in a row followed by a short brake when they can change partners.
Same place hosts different quality milongas on different days of the week, so it's a good idea to look at the program (you can get it in tango shoes shops, tango music shops and milongas), before you decide for one. The link below is the most up-to-date list of milongas of Buenos Aires. My favourites were:
It is a preferred place for the younger public where people attend dancing classes before the dance.
