Love Story 

Wednesday, Apr 10 2013
Before there was the love letter, there was dance. Courtship, mating rituals, and dance have gone together for as long as they’ve existed. But few dances can personify this history better than the Argentine Tango: The suits, the heels, the steady connection of two dancers with their legs entwining to the 2/4 rhythms of the orchestral mu-sic; it all creates a contagious visual seduction. And Argentine Tango has no greater icon than Mora Godoy. She created the first Tango-inspired musical, Tanguera, danced for the Rolling Stones, and showed how sexy a dancer could be on the cover of Playboy. Godoy will remain fully — yet fancifully — clothed tonight when she dances in Enamorados del Tango Lovers. Hailed as “a Tango show at the highest level,” by Banda Oriental, Tango Lovers is directed by Tango world champion Marcos Ayala. It features six couples, live vocals, and a full band with Grammy winner Federico Britos on the violin. As sexy as the show might be, it’s also about passion, history and storytelling — so if you’re writing a love letter to the cast, keep it classy.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
