While One Table is now a firm favourite on the weekly gastro scene, we’re mixing things up this week – with a guest chef. The renowned Yago Márquez is a fixture in Buenos Aires, having popped up with the likes of Antonio Soriano from Astor Manduque Porteño, but this is a first for both Hernán Gipponi Restaurant’s One Table. Check out tonight’s menu here.
If you believe the weather forecast for the rest of this week, it’s going to be a wet one – apart from today. That means you should enjoy the great outdoors for one day only… visitors fresh in town should check out Buenos Aires Local Tours’ free sightseeing tour of Buenos Aires. If you’re more familiar with the terrain, hire a Bicicleta Naranja bike and make the day up yourself. You can’t ride around with an umbrella, after all.
San Telmo’s Museum of Modern Art launches Un extraño efecto en el cielo, Sebastián Gordín’s first retrospective, today. Expect construction injected with humour from this Argentine artist. From 6pm, San Juan 350.
One of the city’s most fun happy hours is at Blanch in Las Cañitas. Chef Diego Rizzi prepares the tapas, a guest barman fills glasses and expect a poetry reciting waitress. From 9pm, Arguibel 2813.
One of the hottest closed-door bars in BA, The Harrison Speakeasy‘s mixologists have picked up a heap of awards for their skills and knowledge. Got a membership card? You’re already on your way in. No such luck? Book a sushi dinner, dress up like it’s 1923 and discretely ask to see the bodega. You’ll be doing the Charleston in no time.
If anyone knows how to throw a party, it’s Unlock record label. Flora y Fauna, their latest EDM offering, will be taking over the Palermo Golf Club for one night only. Expect sounds from Andii Diedishei, Richie Hell and the legendary Solimano. From midnight, Av. Tornquist 6385.
The weekend simply wouldn’t be the weekend without brunch, so do make a reservation for Hernán Gipponi’s unique must-try brunch, served on Saturdays and Sundays! Soler 5862, Tel: 3220-6800.
And come rain or shine, check out some of the free cultural events taking place around the city as part of the Verano in Buenos Aires programme. More information here.
SAVE THE DATE: Our next TFIF happy hour will take place on 21 February. For tragos, tapas and tunes from Buddha Beats, stick it in the diary so you remember to Thank Fierro It’s Friday. Have a great week!
