The meat parade will be extra interesting at Pradaria Churrascaria on Westheimer just outside Beltway 8 this evening (Thursday). The Brazilian restaurant will kick off the carnival season with a Samba floorshow with the "Girls from Rio" dance group. The girls will be shaking it from eight to nine o'clock. For reservations, call 281-501-2960.
Owner Mark Shim says he hopes to get the girls in their carnival costumes to come and dance regularly. Pradaria has a sign out front offering an $8 lunch special on a churrasco platter these days too. The usual price for lunch is $15.95 on weekdays and $22.95 on weekends. The full deal, all-you-can-eat rodizio dinner is $22.95.
