Portuguese Language Meetup/First Game Copa do Mundo in ANN ARBOR, Michigan!!!

Semana de voltar para Ann Arbor, galera!

Vamos lá??! =)

Come join me this week as Detroit Portuguese returns to scenic Ann Arbor, to watch the very first game of the Copa do Mundo... Brasil x Croatia!!  =D

I am off work on this day and will right around 4 pm (Wolverine's opening time), to make sure the TV is on the right channel and that we have a table or tables in the back room.  (BTW, I have verified there is no live music on Thursday this week).  

We'll stay afterwards and have a regular meetup, so if you can't make it to watch the game, come for the second half... if you can't make it for the second half, just come for the meetup... but in any case, SHOW UP!!  

All of this fun will be taking place at the Wolverine Brewing Company on West Stadium (please note that the Wolverine is located next to Big George's Appliance Mart and behind Great Lakes Cycling and Fitness) . Up until recently this microbrewery served no food, but has recently added a selection of sandwiches and nachos.

As always, we welcome members of all proficiency levels. We speak in both Portuguese and English. Native Portuguese speakers will feel right at home and will have the chance to meet local people who share a common love for their language, both native and non-native alike. Beginners will find that our members are very supportive in helping them pick up the "language of Camões", and what better way to improve your proficiency than to practice and share your experiences in a fun environment with people who understand your passion for Portuguese?

Estou aguardando ver todo mundo de novo lá. Apareça, pessoal!

Até lá... se cuida.

    This also seems like an excellent opportunity for me to remind everyone in the group that we have made the group settings such that ANYONE can schedule a meetup, organizer or not.
    All one needs to do is "suggest" a meetup, give details or when/where, etc, and post it. If at least three people say they'll go, the suggestion automatically becomes an actual meetup, and the person who suggested it, the host.
    So, if you find you have a super fabulous idea for something for the group to do, suggest it here... it may become our very next meetup!

    This type of open forum arguing is not appropriate nor healthy for the group. While I will ALWAYS listen and try to respond to positive member suggestions, I will no longer subject the entire group to petty arguments on the common message boards. Again, these types of comments and criticisms should be taken up with me personally. I have devoted a lot of time and energy into ensuring the success of this group, and will continue to do so, but I won't subject everyone to these types of public arguments.
