Moveable Feasts is a weekly agenda in which we give you the low-down on this week’s food fairs, workshops, and pop-ups in Buenos Aires
Today is my Dad’s birthday! Happy Birthday Dad! To celebrate your birthday in another continent, I have compiled this fun list of food events you can’t attend. I am comforted that whenever a reader enjoys any of the following delicious food and beverage options, they’ll be thinking of you, your birthday, and your daughter who lives very far away, which is pretty high on the list of crimes committed by children against parents, probably somewhere between crashing the family minivan (whoops) and burning down the house (not yet!).
Once upon a time, I decided it would be a great idea to give up alcohol for the month. You know what? It was a stupid idea. Dry January is easy for those northern hemisphere people — try Dry July and then talk to me. Anyway, the good people of 444 Vermu, Vino y Amor will be hosting a wine tasting for the thirsty masses – the ones who reserve their spot anyway.
20:00 hrs | 444 | José María Moreno 444 | Caballito
GOD I LOVE GAMES. But not mind games – you can get dafuq out of here with that noise. I also love bagels, and eating bagels while playing games. Which makes this Friday’s event at Sheikob’s bagels the perfect excuse to take a break from talking to my cat about depression, and go eat some hole-some things (get it?) while part-taking in a wholesome social activity! See you there.
20:00-00:00 hrs| Sheikob’s Bagels | Uriarte 1386 | Palermo
¡Festival del Sanguche!
That’s right, people. I bet you didn’t even know that there was a sandwich festival in this town, did you? Well there is, and it’s this Saturday, at our very beloved Casa del Arbol. Bring a friend or two and sample from 10 different sandwich stands, while enjoying live music from Erika Lehner and Nico Iribarren, or perhaps snagging a flash tattoo. At the end of the event you can vote for the GOLDEN SANDWICH.
19 hrs| La Casa del Arbol | Avenida Córdoba 5217| Palermo
MASA at Vino Vivo
Had a rough start to the year? Have a taco. Had a good one? Have a taco. Meh? Take the damn taco already. This Sunday, our favorite resident food writer/taco slinger will be back at it again with the white vans at Vino Vivo, a marvelous little event serving delicious organic wines in the prettiest lil garden in all of Belgrano R. AKA cheto-land. Bring a friend so you can split a bottle (or two, it’s no longer Dry January folks!)
19:00 hrs| Vino Vivo | Tronador 1734 | Villa Ortuza
Las Sasa en la Terraza
If you can’t beat the heat, get thee to an asado. The wild kids from Las Sasa are back at it again with their latest event: sharing some killer food with strangers on a terrace in Caballito.
20:00 hrs | Las Sasa | Address via inbox request | Caballito
Taller de Filtrado
Mondays are hard. But they’re considerably less so with a perfectly brewed cup of joe at hand. Luckily for us all, La Unión Café will be hosting a special 3-hour class to teach us exactly how one brews the perfect coffee, and throwing in a 1/4 kilo of coffee from Cafe Puerto Blest to sweeten the deal. Reserve your spot by inbox.
18:30 hrs | La Unión Café | Esmeralda 266 | Microcentro
Sometimes, when I’m sad about life on a Tuesday, I like to take myself out and walk the 6 blocks or so to a little event I call Old Man Jazz Night. It’s exactly what it sounds like, and it is very, very adorable. Held in the Museo Simik, the venue is filled with cameras of all sorts and old-school wood and glass furnishings. Order yourself a Cinzano and soda, some minutas off the classic old-school porteño bar menu, and enjoy a very enthusiastic show by a gaggle of octogenarians and the occasional grandchild. Make sure to put some money in the envelope at the end. See! You’re no longer sad.
20:00 hrs | Museo Simik | F. Lacroze 3901 | Chacarita
