Argentines do “the previa”

Before an important event or going out dancing, doing “the preview” with friends or family is a common practice among Argentines.

As we are
Los argentinos hacemos la previa

Today, Argentines, before going out dancing on a Friday or  Saturday  night, we get together at a friend's or relative's house or in a public space to do “ the previous ”, eating and drinking to start the exit.

While excesses are sometimes committed, the goal of this practice is to spend some time with  friends . It can be listening to music or sharing food and drink in a space more intimate than a  bar  or  bowling  .

Contrary to other countries, late night departure times are handled in  Argentina  . For this reason, pubs and dancing places begin to fill teenagers, young and adults after one in the morning. But the night begins much earlier, with the ritual of “la previa”.
