Must sees are San Telmo for tango, Recoleta for the cemetary and craft sales, La Boca (although its overly-geared towards tourists and sometimes frustrating due to large tour groups) is colorful and worth an afternoon, and of course you have to go to a Boca Jrs. game - it's quite an event, just be cautious - don't take valuables. I'd recommend going with an agency where they pick you up from your hotel/hostel and take you with other foreigners.
Recoleta is the place for partying - there are numerous bars and clubs to choose from.
El Tigre is a nice day trip from the city center - take the train for about an hour North-west to Tigre, where you can take a 2 hour boat ride ($7) through beautiful river networks where people live - and experience the architecture, grocery-store boats, and other people at work in a different type of climate than one is used to.
Broccolino is by far the best restaurant I found in B.A. - Esmeralda 776 near the intersection of Cordoba - Italian food at a good price. Try the lasagna - best I've ever eaten of the filet mignon with mushroom sauce.
In all, Buenos Aires is a great place that deserves at least 2 weeks to experience just a bit of what the city has to offer.
