January Luncheon — January 30

Those of us who are still in the city have a treat coming. We dine this month at Club Danes. This unpretentious Danish restaurant on the edge of Retiro is on the 12th floor of the building that houses the Danish embassy. They took an alternate route to the lowered traffic and are open only for lunch! The view over the river is great.

The menu has four options and includes a beverage plus coffee or tea for 80 pesos. Dessert (a large selection) is an additional 28 pesos. A wide range of open-face sandwiches are about 40 pesos each.

Hoping to see you all on Thursday the 30th.

Time:  12:30
Date: Thursday January 30
Place: Club Danes, L. N. Alem 1074, Piso 12
Phone. 4312-9266

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.
