We think of Buenos Aires and the first images that wake us up are football , tango and elegant European architecture , right? However, there are other very significant traditions that reveal the most Creole side we have as Argentines.
The clubs are meetings, not to say parties, that combine traditional music, dance and gastronomy from the different regions of Argentina . In some cases they have a formal schedule of guest bands and musicians; in others, with open stages where anyone can pass with an instrument and join for an improvised ensemble. Whatever the format, there is a guaranteed premise: you're going to have a good time and take nice memories.
In Buenos Aires there are more than 70 spaces classified as Notable Bars , recognized for their historical, cultural or architectural importance for the city and, without a doubt, stopping for coffee in one of these places is like taking a trip back in time. Some have their own tango shows, while others present local jazz and folk bands; in both cases the atmosphere generated radiates history and nostalgia.
The influence of European immigration, mainly Italy , has left a profound legacy in Buenos Aires. This is very well represented in the city's still lifes, colorful neighborhood restaurants serving generous portions of traditional dishes such as empanadas , homemade cakes, Milanese , at a very reasonable price and with a great personalized service. It's good to be accompanied: you probably need to share your dish!
The first thing we have to say is that in Buenos Aires you will find the best meat in the world; and secondly, that its star cuts go far beyond traditional dishes (even, it is believed that the preferred cut of gauchos was the tongue). So when you're on a porteña grill, don't forget to ask the grill some good lemon gizzards and some well salted chinchulines .
Buenos Aires has many outdoor craft fairs in squares and parks around the city. The largest is the Mataderos Fair , which is held in the neighborhood of the same name every Sunday. Where used to be the slaughterhouse that gathered the city with the countryside, every Sunday from 11 a.m. tourists can find Creole and Gauchesca crafts, such as ponchos , mattes and cutlery.
