December in Buenos Aires 2012

Summer is creeping up on us in Buenos Aires, and as Christmas and New Year approach, the hotel’s rooftop pool and the lovely garden (where we host our Thank Fierro its Friday happy hour) are proving to be welcome respites from the early heat, and perfect for anticipating the fun times ahead. December is after all a month to celebrate and toast to another wonderful year.

Those who will be spending Christmas in the city can find a breif description of what to expect here, and here to catch a glimpse of what the local New Year is all about.  We will also be posting specific information for this year’s festivities throughout the month.
