Thursday Miscellany and an Itty-Bitty Baby Grand

Of Nooks and Looks

Here are two sneak peeks
 that have tugged at Nero's heartstrings this week.

Of Going Bold in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is a place that everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime. Trust me fair Nerophytes when I affirm and confirm that all of the age-old stereotypes surrounding this much mythologized pin-on-a-map are bona fide. The Argentine capital persists as the fabled Paris of South America, the swelteringly sexy port city, the hub of all things hot and hip and cool -- home to the best espresso, Malbec and man-meat to be had, well, anywhere. But before you book a generic hotel room and scratch this destination off the ole bucket list just like any other bus-bound tourist, consider living dangerously and renting a serious shag pad. It's another hemisphere, a different wavelength -- Hell, even the seasons are topsy-turvied. Yes, what happens in BA generally stays there, so don't blame Nero if you decide to stay put too. The apartment below certainly seethes with macho backbone, and Nero's intimidated senseless by that overpowering stamped-cow headboard, which methinks would be put to better use underfoot or at the very least, flipped and hung in the opposite direction. But we're taking risks on a Tuesday, folks, and awakening the carnivore inside -- walking on the wild side. Because it's never too late to tango.

On Coming Unshuttered

It's Monday, folks.
Fling wide the windows of your world.

I Wanna be Where the Boys Are

Call it what you will, a rec room, a garçonnière, a lad pad, a dude-oir. Whatever the nomenclature, it's high time Nero gave the boys out there a little loving attention and a place to play. But Nero, must it always include a skull? Yes folks, I'm afraid it must. So go ahead and pour yourselves something dry, spark up the Wii, carry on with the karaoke -- in short, get your game on.
