July Monthly Luncheon

This month we are on a quest to find great baby back pork ribs.

We will eat at what has to be the busiest parrilla in the city. I have never passed this place after 10 pm without seeing a line of hungry customers waiting for a seat!

For those of you who are averse to pork or to meat in general they do serve a nice fish dish and have the usual cuts of beef available. However, my recommendation is to go with the ribs.

I plan to do the beverages “family style” with wine and water available at the table. You should plan on a single glass of each for the included price and extra glasses of wine will be at 10 pesos each.

Place: Recoleta, exact address provided upon RSVP.

Date: Thursday, July 25

Time: 12:30 pm

Cost:  100 pesos which includes wine, water, and tip. 

Please e-mail to reserve a spot with Michael: mweldon213@yahoo.com.  If you are new to BAIN, or would like to join as a guest, let Michael know so that he can provide you with the exact address and location.

August Book Club

We need to reschedule our August book club meeting.  The book will remain the same but the meeting date and location are going to shift.  We are going to take a slightly new approach and meet at a cafe for our next meeting and we hope you can join for the discussion. Here is the information for the book club meeting:   


Book choice: NW by Zadie Smith
Date: Monday, August 26th
Time: 13h30 -15h30
Location: Recoleta, Starbucks in the Buenos Aires Design Center (next to the Recoleta Cemetery)
Please email your RSVP to: kerryspokorny@hotmail.com
For those interested in learning more about the book we will be discussing, here is a brief summary and a link to some critic and reader reviews on Amazon.

This is the story of a city.  The northwest corner of a city. Here you’ll find guests and hosts, those with power and those without it, people who live somewhere special and others who live nowhere at all.  And many people in between.

Every city is like this. Cheek-by-jowl living. Separate worlds.

And then there are the visitations: the rare times a stranger crosses a threshold without permission or warning, causing a disruption in the whole system. Like the April afternoon a woman came to Leah Hanwell’s door, seeking help, disturbing the peace, forcing Leah out of her isolation…

Zadie Smith’s brilliant tragi-comic new novel follows four Londoners – Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan – as they try to make adult lives outside of Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, their London is a complicated place, as beautiful as it is brutal, where the thoroughfares hide the back alleys and taking the high road can sometimes lead you to a dead end.

Depicting the modern urban zone – familiar to town-dwellers everywhere – Zadie Smith’s NW is a quietly devastating novel of encounters, mercurial and vital, like the city itself.
