Welcome to my Neighborhood

I currently am writing this post from Baraka, a bustling café in my current corner of the world, the neighborhood of Palermo. Palermo is one of the most populous and largest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires; it’s also considered one of the most well-to-do (especially the subsection of Palermo Chico) and trendiest areas. Parks and plazas, designer stores, restaurants with coveted dinner reservations, art galleries, boliches (clubs) with long lines and cafés prime for people-watching fill Palermo. I technically live in […]

What’s Next

A year has flown by since we started Tara and Karina Go Out! Thank you for reading, passing along our link and offering feedback. We appreciate it all immensely and have much planned for the future, including a redesign, city guide updates and, of course, plenty of excursions. It’s about time we shared what’s going on in our post-college lives! You can expect plenty more from us on here, even though for now, we will be updating from separate hemispheres. […]

The Lost Art of Canning

Homemade jam is a rural secret, but may be the easiest and most inexpensive way to impress all your neighbors, co-workers and friends, no matter whether you live in the middle of a city or the middle of nowhere. (My sister even made it in her tiny apartment in Boston!) With blueberries, raspberries and strawberries all in season, now is the time to strike! In two hours, you can make enough jam to last you and your neighbors through the […]

A College Passover

In honor of the Jewish holiday, a few of our friends hosted a Passover Seder for Jews and Gentiles alike. We both were in attendance at the event and relished the chance to share (Tara) and learn about (Karina) Jewish culture and traditions with good friends while indulging in delicious kosher food. (You can really do a lot without flour! Take our friend’s homemade matzo pizza, filmed below, as an example.) Below are some clips from the seder, including the […]

Back from Cuba

One week, four flights, 450+ pictures and about 12 shot videos later, I’m back from Cuba. It was an incredible experience, but I know I will be processing everything — what I saw, tried, learned and the conversations I shared with Cubans, our tour guide and others on the trip — for a long time. What was, and is still, most salient to me are all the contradictions I realized, learned about and noticed. Cuba is a country where most […]

TKGO’s Year in Review

It’s been quite a year for us. Of course, our baby was born this year (our blog, which we now have a legit domain for, hooray!) over a pitcher of sangria, and we lived quite the life. We cavorted around New York City and tasted the best cup of coffee we’d ever had, we lounged on the beaches of Rio and ate our way through ethnic neighborhoods. A whole new world of nightlife exploration opened to us as we both […]

The First Adventure

Nothing will encourage you to get outside and explore like living in a converted two-bedroom apartment at the top of six flights of stairs in the West Village. We came to New York for magazine internships at Condé Nast Traveler and SELF in the spring of 2009, but all work and no play is not our style. We ate our way through the farmers market in Union Square and dumpling houses deep in Chinatown and danced in Bulgarian basement clubs […]
