Green Field -- Downhill?

time I was there it was a Friday night during the
World Cup and the place was rocking, and this time
around it was early on a Wednesday night. Maybe we
just should have gone to La Portena. Anyway, I'm
interested in hearing about other people's experiences
at Green Field.

    meal -- I've got to have good food next to it.

      whether the place has slid or whether this is the kind
      of meal you can only enjoy once in a great, great
      while, but if I had to guess, I'd say the place has
