Forget the beer, brats and polka! Join us for Oktoberfest a la Utopia style with wine, rice balls and tango!

We’ll have a “barrel of fun” with a special milonga featuring DJ Ramu from D.C.

As usual, we will have a delicious assortment of snacks and refreshments to keep our energy levels up as we dance to his lively tunes. We expect to have many dancers from D.C., so please greet them with the amazing hospitality for which Tango Utopia and the Triangle community is known.
