No, the thing is that Supergrind has no clue how to accept people who signed up for the group. We'll check it out tonight! No worries

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

I am in buenos aires too. I have been a professional for 3 years and traveled for the past 1.5; playing in hostels and hotels in many different countries.

Can you fix the facebook thing, so that i can join the dinner on tuesday? How expensive will dinner be approx? (I don't for myself, but i might bring some girls, and don't want to pay for them too).

Imakefrush is not planning dinners. Normally i'd do it but its very very likely that i'm not going tonight, so if you guys really want to do dinner club, someone step up and choose..

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

All right. I know a really good place, called "cafe San Juan" in San Telmo: San Juan 450. It's a bit expensive (like 50-70 pesos for a main course), but the staek is supposed to better than at "El Desnivel" (we could go there as well; it's a bit cheaper, but very crowded and a tad touristy). Here is a review from time-out: http://www.timeout.com/buenos-aires/.../cafe-san-juan

I'll go there myself at some point anyway, after hearing all the good stories from expats. Let me know how many people are interested: please post here. If there is going to be a small group i'll make a reservation for 9pm.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

http://www.guiaoleo.com.ar/detail.php?ID=1060

should use this site, it's so much better. I'd say not to make reservations. Last week there was no one at the dinner and i just went to get some food w another friend.

small thing, since all ppl are in palermo, i noticed that the chosen restaurants always tend to be in palermo up to recoleta area and surroundings but not so far away.. (well yea, the last times i've been here) Think it might be a reason for some guys to stay in if they need to go that far. Just my opinion tho, might be wrong

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

cool. thanks for info. I´ll just let somebody else do the organisation then (if there´s gonna be a meeting at all), as I don´t know much in Palermo.

Count me in, if we can get a group together of 4 or more.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Anybody know where I can find some high quality luggage? Specifically looking for a hard-cased suitcase that is big enough to fit a laptop and DSLR camera yet small enough to carry on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Apparently the US Embassy is sending out this email today:

This warden message is being issued to alert U.S. citizens that on December 20, 2009, the Government of Argentina will begin charging American Citizens visiting Argentina for business or tourism an entry fee of $131 U.S. dollars. The fee will be collected only at Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport. Once paid, the fee permits multiple entries into Argentina for ten years in accordance with United States visa reciprocity. Americans may pay in dollars, by credit card, or with travelers checks.

The Office of Overseas Citizens Services can be reached from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time, M-F, at 1-888-407-4747, or if calling from outside the U.S., at (202)-501-4444. For any emergencies involving American citizens, please contact the American Citizens Services (ACS) Unit of the U.S. Embassy’s Consular Section, located at 4300 Avenida Colombia, 1425 Buenos Aires;

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Hey guys, I'm planning on visiting Buenos Aires for three weeks in January, something like the 3rd though the 23rd. Does anyone have an extra room / bed I'd be able to rent out during that time? PM me with any info, thanks in advance.

Either way, hopefully we can meet up and you can show me around a bit when I get down there. I'm so excited!

ETA: If I can't find a spare room from one of you guys, I'd also appreciate tips on finding a solid hotel or hostel.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Ok theres an american couple living next door, and they`re mooving on fabruary to San Isidro, so their appartment will be available for renting.
The place is in Belgrano, the street Av. El cano and Freire.
I dont know how much the rent is, but if anyone is intrested I can give the owners number.

It has one bedroom, living room, and a little patio. I assume they have wi-fi or cable modem, but I dont really know.
Its 6 blocks away from Cabildo and Virrey del Pino, like 15 away from Chacarita.
Just PM.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

I need your help:

I travel with a bigger group of players to Bueonos Aires from 23. February until 10. March. We are at least 6 people and at maximum 9.

My Job is to organize a flat for us.

We would like to spend at max. 60$ a person a night and we don´t want to share queen size beds.

A friend recommended Palermo and Recoleta. Are these areas good for us?

Also i plan to live in BA if i like the city, so it would be nice if i could stay at the same area for travelling like i would for living...


Thanks for help!

Yes, unless you are poor or a hippy, you want to live in Palermo or Recoleta. Someone posted like 20 short-term rental agencies like a week or so ago, so scroll through some of the previous posts. You can do pretty well with $2500/per week as your budget.
