Movie night in Sao Paulo V.I.P style

Folks, this is NOT your average movie night out…. Brazilians love anything that screams exclusivity and going to one of the VIP movies definitely has that appeal.  Right when you enter Cinapolis you will see a special lounge sectioned for VIP movie goers which includes a full bar, and select menu (not your average movie treats).

Escape the city in Parque Burle Marx

While I love walking around and taking Teddy to Parque Ibirapuera, however it is WAY too crowded on Sundays!  Since it was a beautiful day we decided it was time to check out one of the other famous parks in Sao Paulo and we ended up driving to Parque Burle Marx.Entering the park you immediately feel like you have […]

Sunday food fair in Vila Madalena

Moment of truth… I am a bit of a picky eater (eek) but I am open and interested in trying new things which is why I’ve always been a big fan of going to ‘food fairs’, I mean, come on who doesn’t love a good food sampling?! These things are perfect for me because I […]

It is very similar to NY’s Chinatown lined with all different types of stores, people selling random stuff, […]

As part of moving to a new city I promised myself I would try to go to at least one cultural or art related event a week (I used to do this when I lived in NYC), and I am so glad I have kept that promise!  Yesterday I went to the “Lady Dior As […]

SP: Il Bienal International Graffiti Fine Art exhibit at Nova Cultural

As you know I am a huge fan of the graffiti culture in Brazil, so I was ecstatic when I stumbled upon the Il Bienal International Graffiti Fine Art exhibit at Nova Cultural this past weekend.  Nova Cultural is an outdoor sculpture -art park with 2 galleries, 2 restaurants, a cinema and home to antique fairs […]

SP: Rotating concert series in the park: Soul Set

One thing I miss about New York in the summer is going to outdoor concerts in the park (yes I am aware that there are concerts held in a number of the parks in NY but you know what I mean). Dancing and drinking outside all afternoon while jamming to your favorite band or DJ; […]
