Owned and run by expats
Alamo bar, American
shamrock bar Irish owner
Bangalore bar Gibralteese owner i think?
myspaceba irish owner.
i will do abit more thinking and add more later.
But the cafe/bar idea in Palermo was the best on that list by a mile,but the rents would be very high.
Remember expats and tourism have only become a big feature in BA since the crash of 2001/2

If you started a bar in 2004-2005 and somehow founded a way to keep the hookers, gatos and more of that shit out, you would have made a fortune. And you would have to have enough capital to buy your own place.

you may consider them crackpot, but i am sure these people have worked really hard to create businesses here in BA
to name a few.....Sugar & Spice, California Burrito, Curves, Apartments BA, which I believe are all doing very well

I have just invented a 3-speed turntable (33 1/3, 45, 78 rpm) with a USB port. I'm going to make a fortune digitizing old 78's in Plaza Dorrego in San Telmo.
But it doesn't count, I'm not an expat!CheersErnie

Ernie, your idea has invention and creativity which all the above lack.
I wish you the best the your invention.
As soon as someone says 'holistic approach' or 'financial...' - I want to gouge my eyes out from boredom and dispair.
Oy Fishface, Hang on, I was joking! Do you really think it's a good idea? It should be really simple to build. I have to get a patent for the thing now...

Of course it is a great idea, but someone has beaten you to the punch unfortunately: http://www.amazon.com/Ion-iTTUSB-Turntable-USB-Record/dp/B000BUEMOO

hahaha... hopefully you have some other fantastic ideas in mind for your retirement fund?? PS: if you can make me a USB turntable for a fifth of cost of the professional one I'd buy one! oh wait, my entire vinyl collection is still in Australia....

I also came up with this all-new, cutting edge-technology-square-wheel concept. I'm still having a little trouble making it roll, but as soon as I get over that one... Oh, and I would also have to find a use for it. Most people seem to be still going for the round ones.CheersErnie

A collaborative business from my fiance's family is underworks and I am happy to help out any way I can. Does this count as opening a business tourism? Actually we are upgrading an existing business (20+ years old) merceria on Cabildo to a boutique store in Las Canitas.
I thought dedicating my BsAs time to help was my sincerest form of commitment to my future family. When the store is ready to open I will invite y'all.
