I have been traveling over the last week with little time to post.

Thanks Roberto for being willing to get this thing together.

I am sure you agree all are welcome, whether tripping to Buenos Aires or anyone who lives there already.


If we can find a place to do a barbecue, that would be good.

Any other ideas?

I think October is mid spring there. The weather in Buenos Aries is probably good then.

A saying in the states, April showers bring May flowers.

In Argentina it may be October showers bring November flowres?

Anyone know the normal weather in BsAs in October leaving out any possible global warming variations?

I may be traveling over the next few days and not timely give imput.

but

What kind of event should we plan.

A one day get together/barbeque or multi day tour whatever that includes hotel rooms for out of towners?

a boat trip might be nice.

a trip to a tango show.

lots of possibilities.

I would be interested in anything from a dinner get together to a couple of days planned event.

I humbly suggest we encourage thinking out loud so to speak with nothing written in stone until a much closer date.

Asado is the argentine barbecue. I am sure you have eaten many already... chorizos, costillitas, asado al asador, morcilla, chimichurri, molleja... any of these sound familiar?

Tom, you are thinking big :-) I never thought of out-of-towners... But yes, we can plan an extended gathering. I'd say we can start small and with low committment and build upon. For example, we can plan a Saturday or Sunday afternoon gathering at a larger cafe/pub like "Selquet" which is in a nice area -outdoors- in the fringes of BA (well not too much) with easy access and parking, large enough to accomodate many and private enough that we can feel comfortable... and take it from there. Depending on who and how many (out-of-towners, locals, travelers) this can be transformed into something else.

But we are like 3 months away, no?

Yes, they sound pleasingly familiar. Might even throw in some lomo.

I think you are on the right track. And we do have some time.

I am up for whatever those interested in meeting want to do.

Maybe we can get some input from Jay and others to help devolope the plan.

Roberto,

My husband and I would love to come to an asado. We found an Argentine restaurant in Spain where I had my first Argentine barbeque and I never had anything so wonderful. Looking forward to meeting in October. Any place accessible via taxi is fine with us. We are there October 5-November 1.

Also, congratulations and best wishes on the adoption!

Roberto, Do count me in for the get together and asado as I too will be there from October 3 through October 29th. It will be a great day. Like Gayle mentioned anywhere within reach of a taxi is fine. Congratulations on the adoption.

Hello all, some unexpected events have made me postponed my trip to November/early December.

In a recent thread, Gayle was asking about the October meeting... are you still reading this thread, Tom? Will you be around in October for a gathering of those who can make it? How about you Michael and others?

I will definitely contact some members at my arrival and try to hook up with anyone who cares. Or will start another thread here. But the fact that I won't be there in October should not stop those who would like to get together!

Hi Roberto,

I will be there from Oct. 3rd thru the 29th , so I am open and would love to attend, just let me know when and where. Since I will be in Palermo I can taxi to the location without any problems, I hope since it was mentioned that a location outside the city would be possible.

Asado/parrilla sounds wonderful! We will be staying in Belgrano so Palermo is not far. I only know of places that I have read about in travel books. I have read about Campo Bravo, El Trapiche or Social Paraisi?

Is a Saturday or Sunday better for most of us? Let's decide which day and then we can set a date in October. We arrive on October 5 and leave on November 1.

Perhaps Roberto can suggest a good place? I am sure Roberto knows all the places "tourists" do not go. My husband speaks fluent Spanish. His parents were born in Buenos Aires. Roberto, I am so disappointed you will not be able to be there. You are so helpful on this forum.

One of my favorites is La Tranquera.

They have a website. It is easy to get there, very close to Palermo and from Retiro/downtown... less than 15 minutes if no traffic driving through "el bajo". Just across nice parks and open area so in a sunny day you guys will have a blast. Don't forget to order:

empanadas
chivito al asador
asado al asador

You can't avoid tourists. There are just too many. But I dined here a miriad of times while growing up. However, there are so many great "parrillas" that it is hard to choose one. If I come up with another one I like I will post it here.

Unfortunatley I will not be able to be in Buenos Aires in October. Maybe in the fall.
That does not stop anyone from getting together in October.
Maybe we can have seasonal get togethers.
One in the Spring, October, one in the Fall, March or April.

Hey there!

So the reservation at the moment will be for

Adam+1
Gayle+1
Michael+1
Larry+1
Mobi+1
Dolores
My mate Tom

Anymore!? Please let me know!

At the moment La Tranquera aren't taking reservations for Sunday, apparantly the date is too far away! They literally laughed at me when I called again on Saturday! So I have sent an email and will try them again today and Wed, we will have a reservation for 12 there under the name "Adam" for sure.

Mobi/Michael, any problems making it on the day, call my ARG mobile, 15 5624 6924... I expect you pay for what you eat, so if you come solo/dont come etc, you shouldn't have to pay for 2!

See everyone there! Looking forward to it...

Hello my new friends,

If someone invites you to their home, is it appropriate to bring a bottle of wine? I know in the US we do or either flowers. My husband has a cousin who wants to invite us over to meet the family and I would like to do what an Argentine would.

Thanks for any input and see you all in six days!!!!!!

Well Gayle,
Just for starters it's never a crime to bring a bottle of wine with you where ever you go! In addition, it will always be accepted in Argentina as a gift on any date and any occasion, especially a family get together! One question to ask is/will there be an asado, if so, difinitely bring a bottle (or two)!

Hope this helps and wine is loved like children (in my opinion) here in Argentina....

See you on the 7th

Hi Gayle,

Basically, depends on how close you are to his family, but you can never go wrong bringing something. Just good manners.
No one is going to be offended that you brought something and might be if you don't.

Also, definitely recommend wine over flowers (flowers are not the norm here at all), or as Piccione mentioned desert is also a good choice.

Hope this helped!

Hey guys

So this is most definately still on, however for day time eating, most people sit outside and they dont take bookings for outside - we just turn up and they seat us.

This being said, what with the nasty weather we have had the last 2 days (dont panic guys, its improving already - but after 2 weeks of sun, the heavens opened!), so I booked a table at 2pm (they said no later) and said if its nice we can just go outside.

It's in my name - see you there!

Not sure what people think but maybe after we could watch the VERY important Pumas game, the semi final against Scotland!

Only an idea, as you may not like rugby, but it promises to be a huge event in any bar showing it, as the WHOLE city is behind Los Pumas (real under dogs, coming through in true fashion! They even moved the time of the Superclassico footbal match, River v Boca for it!).

See you all Sunday at 2pm.

4pm BA time - so we would have a good couple of hours to stiff ourselves with Parilla and then watch the game - but like I say I am open to just relaxing at La Tranquera as well should people not be interested.

We can just decide on the day! See everone at the restaurant at 2pm.

Sorry Guys I wasn't able to make the gathering, Last night was the museum night and I was out until 7am so you know how I felt this morning. Hopefully, there will be another during my stay.

Wonderful city and believe me I will return but, I still have over three weeks to enjoy.

Hi,

I feel so bad that I missed the gathering ,, blame it on the museum night and Argentine hospitality (ahahaha) But, how about if we have another I am located at Charcas and Guise (Palermo) there is a resturant (good food and reasonable) just 1/2 block from my apartment (rented) and then we can all come to my apartment and enjoy like family..

Just a thought ... would be nice. I have music.. jazz, salsa.. tango also.. friendly time.

Michael

Hi everyone,

I am back home :-(

Loved Buenos Aires....food, pastries, wine.

I was interviewed by a young lady named Emily from Rutgers regarding "medical tourism" because of my dental experience. She is in BA until next September doing research. I told her I would give her the name of some of the people that met at La Tranquera so perhaps she can get together with some. She is staying in Palermo.

By the way, the Subte D was fabulous. I know it by heart now. Great means of transportation. We hope to return again next year during the Argentine summer months to get away from the cold Northeast weather! I plan on having additional dental work done. Loved the dentist.

Hi,

I'm here in BA and have been reading the forum for a while in the US. It would be great to meet some of the people whose posts I have been reading. Any plans for another gathering?

Tom,
I believe that would be a great idea, once again getting everyone involved might take alittle work....but well worth it all.

This time, no offense Roberto and Adam, I will pick a place that is inexpensive and the wait staff alittle bit more friendly! The only problem is that we are closing in on the holidays and alot of locals and or visitors will be out of town. If people are interested, I can host the asado at my house on the terrace....it's large enough and the parrilla is big enough.

The only thing I would need to know to set a date is the number of people that would be interested and the dates that they would be able to attend. This will give me a broad field to narrow down dates and numbers etc...

So, if your interested anyone out there....please let me know that your interetsed and what dates would be a great time for you to attend and I will do the rest.

So you know my house is located in San Cristobal the other side of San Telmo sobre Independencia.....

Lets get it done....

Thanks, great idea Tom

No problema, Larry! I will be down there by mid/end January (19th possibly). If you all can't wait then I will sit tight for the next one.
