Eats and Art....

I wanted to plan something special for the last night of the relative's visit to BA, and since they are big "foodies,"  I looked in the Guia Oleo (a restaurant review site for Buenos Aires) and picked the top ranked restaurant, Casa Coupage.  It's a small private dinner house, beautiful setting, with impeccable service and surprising taste combinations.....in between courses, the owner talked of different wine bouquets...passed around scent bottles from France, asking us to guess what each one was....a thoroughly enjoyable evening on the "fancy" side....

Before their flight back home Sunday morn, sister mentioned regretting not seeing any tango, so we went down to San Telmo's Plaza Dorego and watched some pros....
Dave and I often go to Los Arboles on Plaza Dorego to hear great free jazz (with envelopes left on the tables for tips), and we usually see Senior Martini there...a great man who seems to know everyone that walks through the door...he has amazing stories about musicians and artists and a gigantic heart...



Enough partying, it's time to get back to work!....Dave continues to chisel away at his big stone on the Plaza of Central Cultural Recoletta...


but I decided my tiny stone woman was done.....enough chiseling for me...
I am back in a plein air drawing group through the extension courses at UBA...


and trying to go at least twice a week to Association Estimulo de Belles Artes for figure drawing...
and we always make time to eat well in this town...
