This date was born in a way more than special. It was a night of 1965. Ben Molar was stopped in the corner of the tango, corner that, according to his words, it is "the one that my friends Francisco Pacránico and Celedonio Flores made him to call himself Currents and Esmeralda...". He/she went on the way to Julio's house Of Expensive to celebrate their birthday when it arose him/her the great idea: it associated the date of birth of Of Expensive with that of Carlos Gardel. He/she realized that, besides being the two big slopes, they were the two national big creators.

At the two hours of the ultimatum the miracle took place: the promulgation of the ordinance yearned during so many years. This way, November of 1977 Ben Molar 29 received the news that the Ordinance had been signed Nº 5830/77 of the Municipality of the City of Buenos Aires.
December 11 the festival was carried out with the presence enfervorizada of spectators that you/they celebrated the announcement of that desert Day of the Tango and foot vivaron to its maximum idols. They were present the biggest musicians, orchestras, singers, exciting, speakers, journalists and personalities linked with the tango. That night, Julio Of Expensive received very excited in the scenario the applause of some 15 thousand people that you/they sang his birthday.
However, for Ben Molar this was not enough: he/she intended to take the things at national level. December of that year 23, to order of the Secretary of State of Culture of the Nation, Doctor Raúl Alberto Casal, organized a farewell tanguera of that year 1977 in the National Theater Cervantes. But, to change, Ben Molar requested him/her the approval from the ordinance to national level.
