Eat: Soberbia 22
Just about the last thing you'd want to do on an affair vacation, especially if you're a public figure (so what if in a different country), is hit up the trendiest restaurants with entree prices to cause people to take a second look at your credit card statement. That's why we'd head to Soberbia 22, a great Argentinian steakhouse but with all the elements of secrecy we'd want.
In fact, Jaunted swung by here in February and we think it sounds perfect: "You won’t have to contend with a pack of tourists, either, since Soberbia 22 is more of a neighborhood place popular with the residents of leafy Palermo Hollywood, with the low prices to match."

Dance: El Beso
A while back we had written up the El Beso at Riobamba 416 as the perfect place to tango. We said:
The Luv Guv already has a partner which should make it way less intimidating walking into the place.
This Forties-style nightclub hosts a variety of tango parties, or milongas, ranging from casual, no-partner-needed rounds (where you, o seeker of love, come in) to pros-only dance-offs.
Hike (ah hem): Parque Tres de Febrero
Alright so there's no "Appalachian Trail" to hike here, but outdoor lovers can wander around the Parque Tres de Febrero, also known as "Bosques de Palermo" for the affluent 'hood that encircles it. Our own BA embed Matt Chesterton calls it the closest thing to Central Park down here, and that means that with so many crowds of people there are plenty of places to walk along with your lover unnoticed. However, the Luv Guv should avoid hanging out there in the evening since "this is also the de facto HQ for BA's transvestite and transsexual communities who ply their trade here at night." The Republican Party could not handle another one of those scandals.
