"You miss 100% of the shots you never take" ---- Wayne Gretzky

Dear Folks,

The crowd at La Papoñita on Sunday filled our corner of the place, and intensive discussions abounded. So come by this Sunday, August 11th, and add your 2 cents worth.

Topics that are piling up include:

1. Punta Carretas Shopping is featuring La Feria Americana (#feriamericana) from today, Thursday, to Sunday from 16 to 22 (4 pm to 10 pm). With a bank ITAU VISA card, you get an additional 10% discount.

2. During the month of August, De Picos Pardos on Pablo de Maria at the corner of Rodó is featuring Cocinado con Amigos. The dates of the different chefs are known, exactly what they are going to serve up is not, but it should be fun.
Martes 13 Siverio's cookers
Miercoles 14 Fara Cotelo
Martes 20 "El Colo" de Paysandú
Miercoles 21 Gonzalo Delgado
Martes 27 Marcos y su Stroganoff
Miercoles 28 El Sachi
Reservas al 098 60 74 75

3. Those of you caught short on Supergas may want to know why the delivery men were on strike. It turns out that one of their number was murdered while making a delivery, so they all went on strike for a day (August 5th), but resumed deliveries the next day at 8 am.

4. One member has a question about buying tickets:
Can you tell me if expats can buy air/ other tickets in Argentina with Argentine pesos or are we forced to use dollars or credit cards at official rate? Can we go to Aerolinas Argentinas ticket offices or some select agencies?

5. Musical Events--We are going to have to act with somewhat more speed on these events, so here are some of the potential events for the near future. If you are interested, please get back to me right away indicating your potential interest, so we can see which ones are of interest to some people, and plan accordingly. So: Deadline is Saturday, August 10--not for a definite commitment, but as an indication of interest. However: Commitment Deadline for the FREE concert
on August 11 is at 14:00 (2 pm) tomorrow, August 9th
, so that tickets can still be arranged.
