"Some of the world's greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible." ---- Doug Larson
Things have been going well at La Papoñita, so, for the foreseeable future, we will be getting together there
on 18 de Julio at the corner of Minas every Sunday at 14:00 (2 pm). Of course, this applies to this coming Sunday, June 16th as well, which is Father's Day, in case you forgot. Remember, everyone is welcome, bring a friend, no reservations necessary--just come and join in the conversations.
Further items of possible interest include:
1. Ann-Christine, who will be leaving us shortly, has agreed to give a bread baking class
on Sunday, June 23rd, beginning at 11 am at her home in Pocitos. Bring all the ingredients for the bread you would like to bake, and be set to learn, observe, and teach others what you already know. Given the time required to bake the bread and then let it cool, you can count on coming to the get-together at La Papoñita and then go back to pick up the bread to take it home with you. Please let Ann-Christine know if you would like to participate: durandetto (at) aol.com

5. Get wine at a discount
: Devoto offers 10% off
wine bottles if you purchase 6 or more at one time. On Tuesdays, there is also a 5% discount
on everything. The rules appear somewhat unclear, but reports are that, although both are not supposed to be applied at one time, they generally are.
In addition, Devoto offers about a 30% discount on frozen food
during the first week of each month. (Frozen wines, anyone??)
More next week.
