Travel: Buenos Aires

In: Random Reads, Redd, Travel & Leisure

So it’s been a few weeks since I’ve been back from Buenos Aires, Argentina and I am missing the amazing weather & wearing summer clothing. The trip in summary was fun, filled with sight seeing, eating, shopping & some night life. There were lots of great things about Buenos Aires but there were also some things that were a bit annoying.

1. Food

Food was very affordable and amazing. I could not get enough of the empanadas! Argentina is known for their beef and there was no shortage of that. Everyone you turn is a parilla serving various amazing cuts of meat cooked on the grill. Palermo Hollywood has the best assortment of restaurants. Be careful though, specially if you have a sensitive stomach, the organisms in the food may upset your digestive system.

A friend of mine from Sony Music Canada brought me along to see Pop superstar P!nk’s “Truth About Love Tour” in Toronto last night for her first of two Canadian stops (she also plays at Montreal’s Bell Centre March 12) and the show had all the classic P!nk moments we have come to expect from her – lots of theatrical moments, tons of feel-good power anthems to sing along to, more than a couple Cirque Du Soleil-worthy moments, and perhaps most importantly – hottie Colt Prattes (her costar in the incredible Try video)!

The tour is in support of her “Truth About Love” album which has been certified double platinum in Canada and is proving to be one of her most successful to date. P!nk played a range of material from the album, including current single “Just Give Me a Reason,” “Try” (featuring the aforementioned Colt Prattes, a performance that is even more incredible in person to watch) and ended the night (quite appropriately) with “Truth About Love” lead single “Blow Me (One Last Kiss).”

So this year’s big trip has been decided and it will be Buenos Aires, Argentina. The 10-day trip has been booked for February. I haven’t really thought much about it until this week where the temperatures in Toronto have dropped to -20.

We booked three apartments in a building complex in the Palermo Hollywood area, a 2-bedroom and two 1-bedrooms. There are 8 people going on this trip and we are looking forward to taking in the scenery, culture, food & nightlife. While there, so far I have only done enough research to know that I want to see the Evita Museum and visit a winery.

If I could attend any awards show, it’s hands down the Golden Globes. Not only is it the most star-studded, but you can eat and drink while pretending to be interested in some of the acceptance speeches 😉 Admit it, some of them are major snoozefests. Too bad Meryl Streep couldn’t win every category. Her speeches are always hilariously witty.

Going into tonight’s ceremony, Lincoln has the most nominations with seven. Tied in second are Argo and Django Unchained. On the television front, Game Change is on top with five nominations, with Homeland in second with four nominations. Who will be the big winner when all is said and done?

A few of us have shared our predictions in each category. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m the reigning champ amongst the Homorazzi crew. Last year, I predicted the most correctly. That being said, Adam was numero uno for our recent Emmy predictions. Who’ll win this time? Check out all our choices below.

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.

If you’re an avid reader of the site, you might’ve noticed there was a shortage of articles Sunday. Reason being was, we were all busy having our Christmas staff party. Given everyone’s busy schedules this time of year, it’s almost next to impossible to find a date that works for everyone. Surprisingly, all but three of us were able to make it yesterday. That’s a pretty amazing feat considering our busy lives and Alex, Kevin and Topher not currently living in the same city as the most of us. Check out the pic above. The only people missing from the pic are Nic (his BF’s sis was in town), Stephen (was there earlier but had to leave for another engagement) and Alex (LA) and Kevin (Toronto).

It was great to have so many of us together to laugh, catch up and reminisce about the early days of the site. Not to sound super cheesy, but there’s this amazing energy among all of us when we’re all in the same room. With our recent accomplishments, it was nice to sit back and relax for one night and pat each other on the back.

In between all the laughs and drinks, we decided to have a gingerbread contest. We split up into two different teams determined by names out of the hat. Team 1 (my team) won the right to pick either the house or the train. We opted for the train. Each team was given only 30 minutes to build, decorate, and come up with a theme for their creation. Now, we need your help to decide which team pulled it off better. Cast your votes so we can declare a winner and give one team bragging rights over the other.

THANKS again to all of you for making such a success in a short period of time. We have the best readers on the internet for sure.
