A new type of Tangoo has been introduced to the city. It still involves dancing, but preludes with dining, cocktails, and some good ol’ socializing. Tangoo’s tagline is “imagine your weekend, all in one night”; what underlines this how the Tangoo staff organize everything.

The effortlessness of a VIP-like service without necessarily sporting a VIP exterior is the perfect reason to bring you and your crew Tangooing over and over again.

He is not asking for you to donate your money to his cause — he’s making you invest in an inevitable food culture of locally farmed products, a richer agricultural system, and one of many solutions needed to end world hun— I mean, food security.
