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.
