Disappointing Priority Pass Lounge, Dreaded SSSS On My Boarding Pass, Shake Shack Food Trucks, #1 Burger In US Coming To NYC, Family- Friendly Hostel In Barcelona & More- The Rehash!

rehashWe’ve been back for a little over a week from our President’s Week trip and now it’s time to start working out the details of our next little adventure.

Over Spring Break we’ll be heading to Argentina and Uruguay. At this point, all we have left to book are hotels for Buenos Aires and Montevideo. 

Otherwise, it was nice to get an extended weekend thanks to a snow day here in NYC!

How has your week gone when it comes to miles, points and travel?

Now it’s time to take a look back at some of this past week’s posts in a recap that I like to call, The Rehash!

Find out about a Disappointing Priority Pass lounge we visited. Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK Airport.

I got the dreaded SSSS on my boarding pass & it wasn’t so bad. This was a pleasant surprise!

Did you hear that Shake Shack now has a couple of food trucks. Too bad they’re only doing private events and parties right now.

I’m definitely excited for this. The #1 rated burger in the US is coming to NYC. Au Cheval opens in Tribeca this week.

Check out my review of Generator Hostel Barcelona, a solid family- friendly option!

That’s all I’ve got for this week’s rehash.

  1. About time you’re going to B.A. (Bs.As.) and Montevidio! As you’re a lover of pizza, I would highly recommend El Cuartito (get there before 8:30 or wait in line!) and Las Cuartetas (pizza and a bottle of house red was approx. $7.50 USD). Don’t be fooled by the size of the pizza as their heavy with cheese and QUITE filling! I would appreciate your take/review of “pizza argentino” —-

    Lots to see and do in Bs.As. but no so much in Montevideo. Get out to the Uruguayan coastal beach towns of Punta del Este, Piriapolis, La Paloma, La Pedrera, to name but a few. Bus service from/to Montevideo is good, plentiful and relatively inexpensive. Enjoy —-

  2. JohnJ- Thanks for the tips. I’ll definitely look into those pizzerias! As for Montevideo, we’ll only have parts of two days to check out the other area. (We’ll also be visiting Colonia.)

    If you have any other BA tips, send them my way.

  3. Quick tip: Once arriving, the best place to exchange $ into Pesos is at the “Banco de la Nacion Argentina” located in the EZE airport just after clearing customs. If entering the main area, bear to the right and look for its signage. Numerous “CAMBIO’s” before it are nowhere as generous with their exchange rates!

    Sunday morning tip: Plaza de Mayo with its Cathedral (with Jose de San Martin’s casket guarded by Argentine soldiers in period uniforms), the presidential palace, Casa Rosada, and the old city hall, El Cabildo. Off the plaza is Defensa Street with its 8-9 block Sunday only flea market. Lots to see here and places for snacks or lunch. Towards the end of it is Plaza Dorrego with its antiques and good to excellent free tango demonstrations. There’s a Starbucks located there for a “potty” break. All of the aforementioned would take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.

    In general: BsAs has a good and inexpensive subway, the “Subte” Get a map from inside one of the stations. “Un mapa de subte por favor” should get you one from a station master. BaAs is an easy walking city but watch the sidewalks on the side streets as the walks are often uneven and/or broken.

    Again, lots to see and do. I’m sure at the end of your visit, you all will wish you had more time to spend there —
