Não podemos perder o costume, gente. Vamos lá ter uma reunião!!
This week, Detroit Portuguese Language Meetup heads back once again to Gaúcho Brazilian Steakhouse in Northville, a long-time group favorite, on Thursday, May 29th!. The always free pão de queijo there is amazing... not to be missed if you haven't tried it already. If you have, you're likely already addicted! Like me ;)
The somewhat more central location of Gaúcho makes it relatively accessible for both our east AND west side members. I hope everyone will make an effort to turn out this week for another fun evening of conversation, EM PORTUGUÊS!!
At this meeting, I hope to confirm a location for us to watch the first World Cup game. It would be awesome if some of us can watch together and then we'll have a regular meeting afterwards, so even if you're working during the game, you can join us later. ESPN will broadcast all games of the 2014 World cup!! The first Brasil game is on 12 June (Thursday) in São Paulo @ 4 pm (EST), which would be a regular meeting day for us, and the first American game is on 16 June (Monday) in Natal @ 6 pm (EST), as a reference point. The game schedule can be seen at:
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 (http://www.meetup.com/DetroitPortuguese/events/106524892/) 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. 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?
