Hello Everybody:

Found this news report about Caf? Hanson being found by archaeologists in
BSAS.



http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7801668.stm



Since I am not putting my time and energy into being a tango historian
(playing with other aspects of the dance).

Are their any tango historians on the list that could share some history
about this caf?, and a few stories if possible.

Also if there is any one who knows about this caf? showing up in tango
lyrics.



I for one would be very interested in hearing what is out there for my own
edification.

Thanks

David

David,

There is not a lot of information about Cafe Hansen because it was demolished
in 1912 but it was evidently one of the hangouts of the renowned El Cachafaz.
Supposedly there was a contest there between Cachafaz and his reputed black
rival, another famous dancer of the era, El Negro Santillan, which Cachafaz
won.

cheers,
Charles
