SAN FRANCISCO, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Espetus Brazilian Churrascaria, recently honored by TripAdvisor with a 2016 Certificate of Excellence, will welcome lovers with free champagne on June 12th in celebration of Dia dos Namorados, the Brazilian equivalent of Valentine's Day.
Dia dos Namorados (day of the enamored) will be immediately familiar to any Brazilian as part of their national tradition. A less commercial affair than Valentine's Day, Dia dos Namorados is celebrated exclusively by couples, who go to great lengths to prove their devotion to each other. Partners exchange staple romantic gifts like flowers, chocolate and small presents, but the quintessential part of this Brazilian tradition is the sharing of a meal to ensure good fortune for years to come.
As ever in Brazil, festivities abound on Dia dos Namorados—homes are decorated, streets are lit and night-long parties rage—until the morning of St. Anthony's day, when the saint blesses young couples and deserving singles with their perfect match.
About Espetus Brazilian Steakhouse
Espetus, San Francisco's original Brazilian churrascaria, opened its first location in San Francisco's Hayes Valley in the fall of 2003. In Espetus' uniquely traditional atmosphere, a parade of meats is continuously offered and carved tableside by our chefs, called "gauchos" in deference to churrasco's cowboy beginnings on the open plains of Brazil in the 1700s. In our kitchen, 14 signature cuts of beef, pork, chicken, lamb and shrimp are grilled over a mesquite charcoal open flame, giving Espetus the authentic gaucho taste other Bay Area churrascarias are missing.
