Following its glorious success in 2013, Usted Está Aquí, the interactive theatre experience created by directors Natalia Chami and Romina Bulacio Sak is back for its second season. Without spoiling the plot, prepare for the unexpected as you’re transported to different towns, cities, countries and situations as you rove around the Tardis-like Konex, accompanied by a huge cast. Fun and fantastic. Four shows, 8pm, 8.30pm, 9pm, 9.30pm, also Sundays, Ciudad Cultural Konex, Sarmiento 3131, Almagro. 100 pesos.

Got a yen for some real beer? Check out the closed-door Bröeders craft beer night. Two Argentine brothers brew up a storm in Palermo and you get to sample three different types of pint. Book a communal table with friends or keep it intimate with a table for two. You’ll also be well fed with some delicious treats from the NOLA chef Liza Puglia, so expect some southern spice and flavour. We love her fried chicken!

Weekend

Arg La dorita by Pilar Dieguez

 

The second Argentina game take place on Saturday at 1pm – so where will you be watching? One tip is La Dorita for an all-inclusive steak and beer extravaganza. Humboldt and Costa Rica, Palermo Hollywood.

 

Every Sunday, Graffiti Mundo runs a bike tour to check out some street art hotspots around the city. Get your pedal on and bring your artist’s eye to the three-to-four hour tour around Palermo and check out works such as this rather appropriate stencil by Cabaio.
