I would definately take them to La Boca, a beautiful place by the river, with colorful houses, art on the streets and Tango dancers all over the place. I would also take them to San Telmo neighborhood on a Sunday... but there is so much to see!!
An excellent place to eat: El Mirasol in recoleta. They have the most succulent steak in the world!
A must see- the Colon Theatre and the architecture in general. Don't forget to look up! Shopping is great! they have really cool clothes and not expensive at all. I loved going shopping. A few good places are Trossman and Maria Vazquez. Unbelievable!!
I miss my friends at Curiocity (our local hosts) more than anything. Thanks to them, we had an amazing experience in BA, as they call it.

Chimichurri with that?
Chimichurri is a green (although it can also be red) sauce that Argentinians use to season their "asados" . It's quite tasty and in almost every restaurant you will go to you'll have it brought to your table. I loved the way the sauce brought out the taste of the meat, but Ferni didn't like it at all.
The sauce is made from minced garlic, vegatable or olive oil, finely chopped parsley and red pepper flakes. It can also have red or white vinegar, paprika cumin, some orgeno, thyme, cilantro, a bit of lemon and a bay leaf. The red version will have some tomatos added as well as some red bell peppers.
They also sell the Chimichurri in bottled form to take back home.
LOS DOMINGOS SE VA TIGRE A DESCANSAR
Heheheheh that is what most argentineans do in the weekends, they usually go to Tigre for a nice rest, to sail on the river channels...Okay, the name Tigre comes really from the word TIGER...Back there in the past, and I am talking about 1580, a special of jaguar used to live there, lots of them... the native called it as yaguaretés (american tiger), but the spanish wrongly thought they were tigers, but thanks to that, TIGRE IS TIGRE!
To go there you jsut need to drive 32km from the OBELISCO, heading north of the city, Tigre is a small town outside of Buenos Aires, it is something they call PROVINCIA DE BUENOS AIRES!
Actually these water belongs to a river called Lujan which will meet the Parana River, and then the Parana Delta will start.
