Cambalache | South American Fiesta

If the person who first said “fail to prepare, and you’re preparing to fail” had done sufficient preparation, they’d have realized that as soon as they said that no-one would ever like them again.

However right now, as you become one of the very first to learn that

1) Tickets are on sale for an immersive celebration of Argentinian food, wine and culture in an East London warehouse (complete with free-flowing wine and food), and

2) We’re giving away a holiday to Buenos Aires,

their motto must become yours.

So, Bienvenido con los brazos abiertos to Cambalache. A lively and chaotic celebration of Argentina returning to MC Motors on 30th April and 1st May following last year’s sell-out success, it can most accurately be described as “the ultimate South American fiesta”: a rambunctious smörgåsbord of Argentinian food, street art, wine, tango, cocktails and music which has been expertly designed to give you the greatest night out in Buenos Aires you could ever have. Without going to Buenos Aires.

Tickets cost £40, and include all of your food and drinks….all night long. Specifically, you’ll be tucking into over 100 wines from Argentina’s top wineries; succulent Patagonian lamb; empanadas from a traditional Argentinian asado; 1940s-style cocktails at Gaucho’s Galante Cocktail Lounge; and desserts courtesy of Ice Cream Union’s parlour.

In addition you’ll be invited to brave the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires’ famous San Telmo antiques market; enjoy a ‘Fernet Branca’ masterclass; witness cutting edge Argentinian graffiti artists painting murals at an outdoor street party; venture into a rustic estancia to drink traditional ‘mate’ tea with authentic Argentinian cowboys; dance Nuevo Tango in a Buenos Aires nightclub; and hear from a couple of professors who’ll be exploring how your senses and perceptions affect your ability to taste wine.

The opposite to your field of study, then.
