Sao Paulo for repeat / frequent visitors

Hello -

I'm rolling down to Sao Paulo in mid Sept. This will likely be my 10th trip. I'll be staying for a work week so should have some time to explore, eat, drink.

(staying at Hyatt, not ideal)

I feel like I've exhausted the tier 1 sites, restaurants, experiences - Pinacoteca, Ave Paulista, big Park that starts with I, Jardims, Villa Magdalena, etc. I know there is more, and I'm hungry for it.

Curious for suggestions as I have a week to fill. Neighborhoods to visit, streets to walk, restaurants, bars, other things of interest, experiences. Or if there are places in the above mentioned hoods that you really like, please mention those as well.

For example, thinking of visiting the museudo futebol, and maybe even going to a soccer game (advice?)

Anything goes. Thanks in advance

How about broadening your knowledge of Brazilian art with a visit to a smaller museum like the Lasar Segall? A visit to Embu? The SOSO contemporary African gallery/museum (not exactly the title) in a Niemeyer designed building? There's a place I was taken by local friends on the edge of the city (begins with a J --Jaragua, I think) with 300+ steps up to a viewing platform that looks out over the whole city. And the Banespa or Edificio Italia in the city for the view, if you haven't done either of those. Have you been to Liberdade? Beco de Batman? The Butantan institute with all the snakes?
