Leaving So Soon?

Need an excuse to duck out of work early today? Brazil is playing Chile in the World Cup at 2:30, and at Bossa in Adams Morgan, part-owned by Brazilian-born Wagner DePinho, the crowd starts loud, gets louder, and after Brazil wins (and they will), there is dancing to a live samba band. Everyone is decked out in Brazil's yellow colors, and munching on Brazilian 'tapas' like Frango a Passarinho (crispy fried chicken pieces), and Bolinho de Bacalau (codfish fritters). Three dollar Tecates or a couple of caipirinhas will have you dancing every time a goal is scored. Maybe you should start coughing right now!
