I think that meeting on a weekday night doesn't get as many people to come out. I went to a French meetup on Sat. and over 20 people were there and it was cold and wet . I notice Spanish meets on Sat. also. Why on a Monday night and not until 8 o'clock. Late for people who work. Eu gosta muito de falar Portuguese tambem as pessoas do Brazil e gosto tambem o pais.
