Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

My son celebrated his 7th birthday with a football party at the Villa Padierna Racquet Club. Luckily, it didn’t rain and although it was cold, the sun was out for most of the day. His friends came over for a few hours and played football (refereed by my husband), jumped around in the bouncy castle and ran around the playground while us mums huddled near the restaurant terrace. Hotdogs and hamburgers were served from the grill (proper football fare) and a fantastic birthday cake made by Mercedes (one of the mums) was enjoyed by all. J came in the football kit his favorite team, Boca Juniors, and his cake was Boca-themed as well. A fun afternoon was had by all.
