Macunaíma - FilmCelebrate the 40th anniversary of the award-winning Brazilian classic based on the famous novel by Mario de Andrade. This farcical, irreverent satire follows anti-hero Macunaíma from the jungle to the city and back again. Not for the young or the faint of heart, the film uses mature themes, and sometimes graphic visuals, to poke fun at certain myths of Brazilian identity while critiquing the military regime in power at the time. Visit the http://www.lacla.org/ for past reviews of the film.
(Brazil, 1969, 105 minutes, color, in Portuguese with English subtitles, MPAA rating: R)

Operating under the unique service concept of espeto corrido, which translates from Portuguese as "continuous service," Fogo de Chão satisfies palates and the desire for something original. Instead of ordering from a traditional menu, Fogo de Chão offers a prix-fixe system where guests can sample the entire menu, or just focus on their favorite items.
The lunch and dinner menu features unlimited servings of 15 different delectable cuts of fire-roasted meats, a sumptuous buffet of gourmet salads and fresh-cut vegetables, and a variety of Brazilian side dishes.
Each guest uses a two-sided disk to control the pace of their meal. The green side signals the Gauchochefs to bring out skewers of sizzling fire-roasted meats to carve at the table. The red side indicates a stopping point. Turning back to green lets the Gaucho chefs know to start offering the meats again.
The traditional side dishes of warm cheese bread, fried bananas, crispy hot polenta and seasoned mashed potatoes are automatically brought to each table and replenished throughout the meal. The restaurant's award-winning wine list, traditional Brazilian beverages, and a variety of decadent desserts complement the experience.
