Announcing a new Meetup for Boston Happy Hour!

What: Brazilian Happy Hour Party at Johnny D's

When: Thursday, July 22,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Johnny D's 17 Holland St (Davis Square) Somerville, MA 02144 (617)[masked]

Once again it's Carnival time at Johnny D's with the long awaited return of Marcus Santos and Bloco AfroBrazil. The fun begins at 7:30 PM and goes until 9:00 PM.

Yet another chance for you to experience the baddest, loudest, funnest indoor carnival around. Yes, I am a GIGANTIC fan which is apparent because each time this group parties, I place it on the Portuguese and Onyxbirds Meetup calendars. Since dinner is an option, I've also invited the Meetup dining group, Breakfast Brunch Lunch & Dinner. Let's pack the place again, because the more the merrier and also your presence will convince Johnny D's to keep the Bloco AfroBrazil party on their schedule.

Bloco AfroBrazil is a 12-piece percussion ensemble that always exceeds expectation by putting on a spectacular show combining traditional Brazilian grooves like Samba and Ax? with Funk, Rock, Jazz and even Hip Hop; add to this, Nina Torres' captivating, energetic and passionate vocals as well as beautiful dancers and you got a recipe for FUN, Brazilian style!! Bring your dance shoes or socks and leave your worries at the door!!

Bring your friends....I guarantee a funtastic time, that is if you like your music strong and your party loud.

You must be at least 21 but you don't have to drink, just enjoy each others company and an AMAZING! show.

Once the drumming, singing and dancing start, group conversation is difficult. Let's just enjoy the party!


$10 cash cover charge at the door
If you want to be included in the dinner reservation you must also order at least $10 (this is in addition to $10 cover) in food and/or drink....otherwise you're welcome to enjoy the show from the bar or dance floor.
