La Peña del Colorado

This one's for you, Mom. Just scouting it out for you. Don't worry, we will go again when you get here next month!

So we went to La Peña del Colorado, a local club/restaurant with live acts every night.

We ate copious amounts of amazing Argentine food, in a very rustic atmosphere. We started with meats, cheeses and olives on a slab of wood, morcilla spread on bread -- which I LOOOOVE, as long as I don't think about what it really is -- some sort of gaucho "french fries," and hot, cheese-filled rolls. YUM!

Then we had our main dishes; Mark had a lamb stew served in an earthen bowl,

Neil had locro, a traditional Argentine stew that I thought we would share, but it wasn't enough for the both of us. It was SOOOoooo delish, I should have gotten my own bowl.
Instead, and I really don't know what I was thinking, I got the brick-oven pizza. Super cheesy. I only ate this bite, and then I nabbed spoonfulls of locro when I could. Who gets pizza at a place like this??? Dumb dum dum.

whoa! have you ever had a magnum ice cream bar? They are delicious. At first we just bought them for the name, because it sounded like a condom, but they are really good. I love that poster. I'm honored that you think I look like that girl from the poster.

Are you saying it is an OPEN MIKE for me or that the venue is one I might like? Wasn't planning on performing while there - this trip anyway. Looking forward to seeing you and all that BA has to offer but mostly you and yours!

That's funny, I'd actually never heard of Mercedes Sosa. You would have appreciated the show way more than me!

Rachel, no, I don't think I've ever head a Magnum ice cream bar, but they look good!

Can't wait to see you, either, Mom!
