It has been 5 years since I last visited Argentina.  I went there to learn Argentine Tango, not for the wine so most of my time was spent at Tango Schools in the city of Buenos Aires. When I saw that the BC Hospitality Foundation’s DISH ’N DAZZLE 2018 was featuring Wines of Argentina, I thought it was time to get an overview and taste of the wines. The  DISH ’N DAZZLE event is a fund raiser for for the BCHF which supports people in the hospitality industry who face financial crises due to health issues and have no other source of help. BCHF also provides training scholarships.


VANCOUVER, B.C. -  Musing about how David Young adapted MacLeod’s No Great Mischief from novel format to a play, got me thinking again about John Alleyne and Ballet BC’s production of A Streetcar Named Desire. I wondered at the time how the verbal nuances and symbols of a dramatic script could be translated into a ballet.
