This are the people that expressed interest:

* The restaurant guy (I don't remember your name, sorry).
* mikew81
* Probably a friend of mine called Jose
We'll play the minimum stakes a player wants to play (it will probably be argentinan pesos 0.50/1 or 1/2.

Please confirm. Whenever we reach 9 players we close the table.
For now, I'm the only one confirmed.
Count me in (Kevin, the restaurant guy)

* oopsIpooped (I think you are either Addam or the irish guy?)
* ktizo, Kevin, The restaurant guy
Sorry for giving tags to people, but as I'm new I still remember more characteristics than names in some cases.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Hey,

I need to get a new 15" 2.53ghz Macbook Pro with/and a 256gb SSD hard drive. While Macbook Pros don't seem too hard to find here, SSD hard drives are a whole other story: they're simply not available. Mac Stations, Mac Stores, Maxim Stores, Galeria Jardin shops, Mercado Libre, no one carries them, no one can get them in a timely fashion.

Is there anybody coming to Buenos Aires soon? I'd be really, really glad if someone could bring me a Macbook Pro and/or a 256gb SSD. I'll take care of all payments and make it worth your time as well of course.

Thanks in advance.

Xavier

Anyone up for going tomorrow nite after dinner to a Drum N Bass party! Guest DJ is DJ marky from sao paulo and he's mixing a lot of latin stuff in his DnB.. Good stuff.

Like DnB is huge in europe, don't know about states, so just posting here to see if there is some interest

Im in the mood to do something outdoorsy. Besides Iquazu and Tigre, can any recommend a day or weekend trip around here? Maybe a park with some good trails or something like that?

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Is it dangerous going to Iguazu [just the falls, for a day trip] without getting shots? A Doctor I talked to said its not a big deal, anybody have any input on that?

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

I got the shots, you can get them for free here, but I can't remember if I had to wait for a while before going anywhere after I got them.
The way I look at it is: Getting yellow fever or whatever would suck

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

The game tomorrow will be at 9pm.
There are now no chairs problem, and we can join two tables to make a bigger one, so we'll be able to accomodate 7 players (the 5 confirmed, plus Adam plus the belgian buy).
I'll pm the address and the phone to the ones that confirmed, it'll be at 9pm and we can order some empanadas.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

i have a dumb question. when did Drink Gallery close? I went there a couple weekends ago to watch football and it was a swanky heladeria.

Kinda sucks, because now i have to go down to Recoleta when I feel like watching the NFL.
