Hump Day at Boteco Offers All-You-Can-Eat Appetizers

Today we welcome hump day, the awkward midway point to the weekend's freedom. Why grudgingly crawl over this nuisance when you can conquer it Brazilian-style? Every Wednesday, Boteco offers an all-you-can-eat appetizer special for $9.50 and a corresponding happy hour.

This "Rodizio de Salgadinhos" special provides a prix fixe order sheet so guests can chose multiples of their favorite Brazilian treats. Options include fried codfish croquettes, stuffed burghul shells, and rice dumplings. The deal kicks off at 7 p.m. and overlaps with happy hour (5 to 8). This means house drinks, caipirinhas ($6), and caipiroskas ($6) are half off. A caipirinha or a caipiroska from Boteco makes all others taste like impostors.

Boteco's ambiance is perfect for those in a festive, block party-like mood. In Brazilian slang, a boteco is a boho-style neighborhood bar. Miami's Boteco sticks to its roots quite literally: There is zero air conditioning, and only fans fight the summertime sizzle. It might sou nd torturous, but the heat is actually manageable. The open-air patio is really the heart of Boteco's charm. After all, when you're sweating to samba music, with gorgeous Brazilians all around and a fresh drink in hand, why would anyone mind?
