Buenos Aires meetup? October 2, 2007 5:08 PM   Subscribe

Buenos Aires meetup? This weekend maybe? Or next?

I tried to bribe people with ice cream for the last meetup attempt and still it did not work. But I'm trying again. It looks to be not quite warm enough yet for ice cream, but pizza, beer and wine are always good.

Is it any help if I wish I were in Buenos Aires?

I too wish I were in Buenos Aires. Have some pizza and malbec for me.

I will be arriving in Buenos Aires on the morning of sunday 14th, so if we can make it next weekend, i'm on for it!

jontyjago, I'm flexible. That sounds good to me. Midweek is OK, too, if you'd prefer not to march off the plane and into a meetup.

I'm emailing some people whose profiles show them as local, so we'll see if anyone else chimes in.

Next weekend (or after) works for me.

Very busy opening a new bar, but will try! Once we're open, I'll throw a meetup at my place!

conifer: that's cool. When are you guys opening?
posted by jazzido at 8:46 AM on October 3, 2007

Aiming for the middle of November. It's two blocks off of Plaza Serrano in Palermo Soho.

What say you all to the evening of Sunday the 14th? Seems it would work for jontyjago. Works for me.

Can that work, jazzido? Conifer, do you at least have a shot of making it the 14th? (Or do you know it's impossible?)
posted by veggieboy at 1:05 PM on October 3, 2007

Yup, fine with me - I don't know the city at all, but the place I'm staying at is near the Palermo metro station, so if we can meet round there somewhere, would make it easier to find for me.

14th of October? Not a chance in hell as we don't get the keys until the 10th! Need about a month of so of renovations before it's ready for the public. Can I link to the site of this new place and some of my other projects or is that forbidden?
posted by conifer at 2:56 PM on October 3, 2007

No sweat, conifer. A meetup at the bar sounds great, but I was asking about a meetup elsewhere for the 14th. I just meant: Do you have something that would absolutely prevent you from making a meetup that date, or is there at least a chance you might make it, time permitting?

I see the bar via your link in your profile. Cool.

Hi there everyone:

I'm a Canadian that's currently on vacation in Argentina - I would have loved to join you in BA on the 14th, but I leave Sunday night to come back to Canada (and work, boo!).

I may be trying to get to Iguaza Falls on Saturday, but I'll be around BA until Sunday at 2 PM or so, so if there is anyone interested in a meet up this weekend as well as the 14th, I could also join. Alternately, anyone interested in a MeFi whirlwind tour to Iguaza by plane?

Veggieboy - Unlikely that I will have a free moment for the next couple of months! But the remind me the next time you want to have a meetup - if it's at my bar, I've got a good excuse for going!
posted by conifer at 5:03 PM on October 3, 2007

I'll be in Buenos Aires till the 12th. I just came back from El Calafate, so it's not too cold for ice cream for me. If the idea of the meetup develops, I'll be there!

Seems like Sunday the 14th will mean at LEAST two people -- three if jazzido makes it! We're going to have to make up in Malbec what we lack in numbers.

Jazzido, any input on where we should go? King's Town on Jufre would be a good option but they're closed Sundays. I've always wanted to check out La Cava Jufré (Jufré 201).

Conifer, suerte with the bar. I'll hold you to that meetup offer in a few months.

Cyrie, I'll shoot you an email in case you have time for coffee in BsAs.

Sorry, micayetoca, didn't see your post before I hit the button.

Maybe if Cyrie's up for it, we can do a coffee meetup this Sunday late morning/early afternoon?
posted by veggieboy at 7:09 AM on October 4, 2007

Clarification: I mean this Sunday in addition to Sunday, 14 Oct! I'm down for two meetsup in a week!
posted by veggieboy at 7:20 AM on October 4, 2007

La Cava on Sunday 14 sounds great. Late evening?

(can't make it this sunday, though :( )
posted by jazzido at 11:51 AM on October 4, 2007

What's late evening for you, jazzido? Should we have mercy on jontyjago, who will have stepped off a plane that morning?

Can 21.00 work?
posted by veggieboy at 2:30 PM on October 4, 2007

Sure, that's cool! 9pm then
posted by jazzido at 10:24 AM on October 5, 2007

Excellent. I've sidebarred it as a meetup, then. Here's the location. Jontyjago, it shouldn't be too far from where you're staying.
posted by veggieboy at 2:12 PM on October 5, 2007

This didn't go well, did it?

I showed up and waited around a bit, but the bar turned out to be closed and 20 minutes or so was my limit for standing on a dark street corner.
