Flag of Argentina  ,
Monday, January 19, 2009

For those of you that were wondering, 'How can I party like a Moroccan from France who lives in Argentina?' we have the first-hand scoop for you.

Step 1: Take your guests out to dinner in Palmero for a "simple dinner", which is a guise for a very nice dinner at reasonable prices. Arrive at standard Argentine time (about 10:30pm) for dinner and close the place down buying every course you can.

Step 2: Go to a bar from 1am to 2am. Order a drink with Fernet. If you havenīt tried Fernet, itīs an aquired taste, like a combination between Jaegermister and tart bark. Nummy!

Step 3: Take your guests to a club for the real action. Whether thereīs a line at the door or not, barter with the owners for 10 minutes, make sure you, and the owner are doing a lot of pointing at the guests mixed with excited chatter in Spanish, and then buy a full bottle of vodka so you can get a bracelet strapped to your rist, offering restricted access to a private dance club room. If you want to dance with the "commoners," you're going to have to leave the privilaged area.

Step 4: Unbutton your shirt and smoke a cigarette in the club. Common', everyone's doing it!

Step 5: Dance until the sun comes up, leave the rest of your bottle of vodka with the people that run the bar, and flag a taxi home.
