Country in the City
Quick, what do you know about Brazil? Steak houses? Rio? Bikinis? You probably didnt come up with square dancing, Brazilian country food (mostly made from corn), family-friendly county fair-style booths and games, and more people wearing jeans and plaid shirts than you'd think possible in a trendy bar. But thats exactly what youll find at Boteco, a Brazilian bar on the Upper Eastside, this Sunday from 2 to 11 p.m. Festa Junina is part of a Brazilian holiday that celebrates country life. The party will heat up as the night wears on and a band takes the stage, so choose your partner, memorize a phrase or two of Portuguese, and drink enough caipirinhas to launch you into a new dance (forro).
