You Are Here, Brazil

With its indigenous architecture and accurate cultural portrayals (like the guy in the Roman soldier getup hocking pasta in the street), Española Way is South Beach’s own tiny version of Epcot, and Tapas y Tintos is the representative from Spain. Tucked away at the end of the street, the restaurant calls attention to itself with its ridiculously attractive waitresses — kind of like Spain itself. This Thursday, celebrate cultural encounters at Tapas y Tintos’ Brazilian Night.

Besides the eye candy, the night will feature live samba, bossa nova, and jazz, plus two-for one caipirinhas, which might have you thinking the Roman soldier is trying to invade your table and steal your waitress. Crush the fifth column! Viva Brasil de España!
