Favela Chic celebrates 5th birthday
Favela Chic, the Brazilian bar and restaurant in London’s Shoreditch, has invited me to celebrate its 5th birthday later this month and you could come too. It’s an invite-only event, but if you get your hands on a ticket, then you can enjoy – according to the organisers – “free music, food, drinks and calorosos hugs” (hot hugs). I’m not sure who is providing the latter, and whether they will come from a sexy or sweaty person – or both.
The event will take place on November 24 from 7pm at 91-93 Great Eastern Street. Among the line-up are electro swing band The Correspondents, Toulouse-based quartet Le KKC Orchestra (Favela Chic also has a restaurant in Paris) and DJs Gringo Da Parada, Ross Clarke and Deany Seagulls.
Favela Chic will also be supporting street children charity Action for Brazil’s Children Trust by adding 25 pence to the price of each caipirinha and 50 pence to the feijoada dish on the night – and matching each customer donation – to give to the charity.
If you want to come along, join Favela Chic’s mailing list on http://www.favelachic.com/london/ to be in with a chance of winning two tickets.
Hope to see you there.
