Ya, it's a pizza/pasta place ran by the dudes who own La Cabrera. Easily one of my favourite restaurants in Argentina so far.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

I was taking a cab from Aeroparque to a few blocks past Plaza Italia and the driver quoted me a price upfront of 30 pesos and didn't run the meter. I've never before had a cabbie not just run the meter when going to or from Aeroparque and 30 pesos seemed slightly on the high end but not enough to argue over. Should I have said something (and if so, how do you ask them to use the meter in Spanish)?

Unrelated note: I can confirm that the reciprocity fee is charged at AEP.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

you could always say smth like 'no quiero una tarifa fija/precio fijo'.. Anyway, last year AEP->palermo ran about 25pesos, so i wouldnt stress too much about it, especially not if you came in during peek hours cuz then it pbb runs up more then 30

I need to get rid of a computer chair since I'm leaving Saturday. I bought it for 700 pesos and would sell it for 250 pesos. You just need to come get it from me. If anyone is interested PM me here or facebook and Ill send you a pic.

Haha...just read the 4 hour body? You can probably pick up the build it yourself version at Easy on cervino...the plates I'm not so sure about about, but there is a gym store where L. Maria Campos splits off of Santa Fe. Maybe they even have the kettlebells there...not sure.

I think there was some good advice earlier in the thread about specific fancy restaurants.

Very touristy, but that bike/wine tour was a great day!

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Azucar is one of the best known restaurants in Mendoza. You should try to book in advance because it's always full. In the same street u got a lot of decent restaurants as well.

Don't miss the Familia Zuccardi bodega. The tour is the same as any other, but they have a restaurant out amongst the vines that offers an awesome lunch and you can hang out and stroll the vines as you digest. The wine is very good too.

If you want your hair cut in Palermo I'd super recommend Daniel Canut at Oro 2259 (between Paraguay and Charcas). Cool barbershop place with one single chair, dude speaks enough english to get by... one of my favourite cuts I've had.

If you're going with a gf or something this place is really nice, absolutely incredible staff - srsly loved the place, perfect location too, it's ~$70usd/night. http://www.bohemiahotelboutique.com/

You don't need to rent a car or any BS to visit the wineries. There are lots of great tour options that pick you up from your hotel. I'd also seriously recommend Azafran as a restaurant - very very good - the way you order wine is v cool
