I'd be interested in that. I am Mike, 52, been here a couple of months but I don't know of any good curry houses.

I love curry! I know a couple of places. And, although I'm not English I do speak it very well. Queen's subject from Canada. I'm heading south next week for a couple but would love to eat and chat when I return.

A good place for you guys to meet up first is at the Club Europeo. It´s downtown, off Puerto Madero (near Retiro and the La Plata highway), and has a great view of the city from the 21st floor!

You can just meet at the bar, no need to be a member to enter.
Or you can participate in the language conversation groups, where the topics are open so you can ask where to find the best curry in town!!


Mon-Tues for the English conversation groups, and Wed for Spanish for expats.
This Thursday there´s an After Office party at the Italian Club. Great to meet up also. And Friday, there´s a Diplomatic Party at the Hotel Panamericano, in front of the Obelisco. All good places to meet up, and meet new peopla both bilingual locals and expats.
All these week-day events start 7pm-ish.

At the Club´s English groups, there´s a keen Indian guy who checked out all Indian restaurants and found Taj Mahal, to be the best and even cheapest. (Nicaragua half-block towards town from Scalabrini Ortiz) Good spicy and HOT food!!

Hola Blackburn,

I'm an American baby boomer who's here till April. I'm an Anglophile to boot!

Not working here, though I must say living in BA is work.

If anything gets organized please clue me in or Blackbeard, you can send me a private message.

I was thinking about having a party (maybe a New Years one?) in my little house for the boomer expat crowd.

Victoria (like the queen)

Hi there, if you will allow a Happy irish guy with an English accent join in, I'm here in BsAs, and free as can be... (Happy as we beat the Springbok today, to end the year unbeaten!). 51 going on 25... Think that sees me as older, but not so sure about the mature bit!

I know of one curry house and pub in BsAs, its The Bangalore, which is on Humboldt 1416, between Cabrera and Niceto Vega, and owned by the same people that bring you The Gibraltar. It's open from 6 pm evenings, till the usual late.

Only day I can't make is Tuesday's midweek. Anyone up for suggesting a time?

Liam
