I did the same in Iguaza and can concur that it was a great experience. I am sure this would be their first DO hosting....

Ah, too bad that one's sold out for this weekend! I found this Food & Neighborhood Tour of Palermo Viejo that's bookable for Sunday, April 17. They've got an AsadoAdventure Tour that sounds good too, but only for Saturdays it seems.

Try Fogon Asado if you are there on a AC mileage run.

Possibly the best meal I have ever had. Need to book and pay in advance. Cheap by North America standards and it is outstanding.

Itís owned by the same person from The Argentine Experience.

Depends on how many of you guys are going - perhaps call them and see if they can get you another full table or at another time.

I managed to book a $2250 YYC-EZE this weekend from 4/15-18 in premium economy. Don't think I'll get any upgrades at this stage in the game though as a lowly 35K. What's the status of any DOs on the ground in EZE? What are people doing for the travel insurance? Is an Amex premium card certificate of travel insurance sufficient?

If you're taking the YYC–YUL–GRU–EZE route, there's still R space available on the long haul flights, so you have a chance!

April 15
AC 96 YUL–GRU J5 R4
AC 90 GRU–EZE J5 R2

I don't think we settled on anything in Buenos Aires for this weekend. There'll be a lounge meetup in YUL. I've signed up for this food and neighbourhood tour on Sunday: Food and Neighborhood Tour of Palermo Viejo.

I think the Amex premium card travel insurance is sufficient, but I'm not 100% sure. Still trying to figure that part out.

I'm also booked to fly YUL-GRU-EZE starting tomorrow (the 15th)
I'm doing the immediate turn and coming back on the same plane, so I can't join you for any EZE activities ... but for the YUL-GRU_EZE flights, I'll be there

Takes quite a while for temperature adjustments to make it to the shower head!

YOWgary and I are returning from EZE. Weíll be in GRU at the same time as you. We could meet up at the GRU *A lounge! AC 91 EZE-GRU is delayed, so we might not have much time there.
