For previous post about Coco Louco Brasil’s first anniversary party in 2010. My neighbor Craig Meyers played the laments of the “Choro Guys” led by Moacyr Marchini.
My long time friend Stephanie Farrow is visiting from New Mexico for an extended jazz conversation. To celebrate I took her to Coco Louco Brasil, one of my favorite places in the Central West End. Everything about the place is so honest and from the heart. It feels like home.
After our excellent dinner Executive Chef Jorge Carvalho stopped by our table which led to a charming chat, and an invitation to come for a private preview of their party room that’s shaping up into what will be a fun and hopping lounge and nightclub.
While live music is the beat of the night, there’s also a fun digital jukebox that thrives of dollar bills. Just the four of us (Jorge, Rachel, Stephanie, and I) sang along, danced, and raised our glasses filled with a shot of Leblon Cachaca, a rum-like spirit from Brazil made from distilled sugarcane and aged in French Cognac casks. Oh, my!
We did manage to find our way home. But, plan to return Friday, May 27th (7 p.m. to 12 a.m.) for the music of Velvet and the Velvet Express Band.
