For the estadounidenses not on the State Dept mailing list...

Join consular officers from the U.S. Embassy for an American Night happy hour at the Hard Rock Café in Buenos Aires! The event will take place next Wednesday, February 11, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This event provides a chance to network with U.S. citizens and Argentines and to receive answers on questions about services the Embassy offers to U.S. citizens, including passport renewals, federal benefits, transmission of citizenship to your children, documenting births overseas as U.S. citizens, and visas. The Hard Rock Cafe will offer happy hour specials and discounted food for all in attendance. We hope to see you there!

Have you completed your Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) for the year? Though there are no regularly-scheduled elections for Federal offices this year, there may be local elections in your district. Regulations require absentee voters to submit the FPCA yearly to request ballots for any elections during the calendar year. All U.S. citizens will have an opportunity to register to vote and request absentee ballots through the Federal Voting Assistance Program during American Night. For more information please visit www.fvap.gov. Please note you will need your voting address in the United States to register.


We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Argentina enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

Regularly monitor the State Department’s website, where you can find current Travel Warnings, Travel Alerts, and the Worldwide Caution. Read the Country Specific Information for Argentina. For additional information, refer to the Traveler’s Checklist on the State Department’s website.

Contact the U.S. embassy or consulate for up-to-date information on travel restrictions. You can also call 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada or 1-202-501-4444 from other countries. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays). Follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Consular officers from the U.S. Embassy will be present at the next American Night happy hour at the Hard Rock Café in Buenos Aires, June 18 from 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm. This event will provide a chance to network within our expat community and an opportunity to ask questions about services the Embassy offers to U.S. citizens, including passport renewal, federal benefits, transmission of citizenship to your children, documenting their birth overseas as U.S. citizens, and visas. Additionally, Argentine university students preparing for the Summer, Work, Travel exchange program in the U.S. will be present and anxious to learn about our country and practice their English. We hope to see you there!

the reason I am in Buenos Aires is to get away from the Hard Rock Cafe, and all its ilk.
I think the purpose here goes beyond the venue. "an opportunity to ask questions about services" and etc.

As much as I agree with you, these things are always jingoistic, no matter the government hosting them. It must be a "Murrikan" venue.
