Mural artist Grothesque painted a big-ass emblem on our big white wall on the terrace. It can be seen from a long way down Piedras! He also painted the outside walls of one of our new rooftop rooms. Click here for more Grothesque.
A big group of cyclists descended on Art Factory. They were in the middle of a grand tour of South America: 125 days, 15,000 km, the largest of its kind ever attempted by a tour group. Wipe-Out King James was kind enough to share some of his photos of the tour with us. Thanks!
Every Wednesday and Friday, I conduct a walk through San Telmo's vibrant and emerging arts scene. We tour local galleries and artists' and designers' shops, talk to the curators and sometimes the artists, seek out graffiti art, take an empanada or pizza pit stop and usually end up in one San Telmo's oldest bars for a beer or two or three. Stimulating and fun.

Asado is a technique for cooking cuts of meat, usually consisting of beef alongside various other meats, which are cooked on a grill (parrilla) or open fire. Asado is quite popular in the Pampa region of South America, and it is the traditional dish of Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay.
Football is a national passion in Argentina, some might say obsession. Enjoy a great game in Buenos Aires at Boca or River Plate stadiums. It gets kinda rowdy sometimes, so be prepared to stand and shout the whole time.
