After 4 days in Mendoza, mid-September, I have a week to fill before returning to BA. Any suggestions?

Las Lenas if you're into skiing.

Otherwise you may want to try Cordoba on the way back to BA. It is a university city with lots of young people, mostly students. You can also do various tours outside the city while you are there. You can see the sierras chickas and grandes, go to Villa Carlos Paz or see the house where Che Guevara lived as a child in Alta Garcia, just to name a few things to do. All are within proximity of Cordoba and you can book tours to see these places.

I second that. Cordoba is a good spot to spend a day or two, and it's easy to visit Alta Gracia as a day trip from there.

i really enjoyed it there. Spent a week

Consider Santiago del Estero. Many people don't like it, but I did; it's a nice, off-the-road destination, with only very few foreigners.
