A Journey to Rio


Published:

Time to unearth that BeDazzler from Mom’s attic and raid the nearest Michaels for their remaining stock of beads, feathers, and masks—Mardi Gras season is upon us. If dancing to musical genres you have absolutely no shot at pronouncing, surrounded by sweaty Latin dancers who are far more attractive (and less clothed) than you, sounds like the ideal way to celebrate, we have good news: the ever-popular San Diego Brazil Mardi Gras Carnival is back. And this year (their 20th anniversary), not only do they bring live samba and capoeira performances, but also a roundtrip ticket to Brazil for one lucky attendee. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for ya. February 18. Tickets $25-$75. brazilcarnival.com
