And the summer of 2014?

Every summer has a history. It is an ephemeral passion, an unforgettable journey, a mysterious Tin or a collective whistle, this time of high temperatures always results in many stories to tell.

The station marked by tanned bodies social life is relentless. Friends gather at the beach post, suddenly a song, then comes someone with beer and ready, which was a meeting of old friends, becomes a big meeting place for locals and tourists.
It takes energy to keep up with the events that crowd the agenda of Rio at this time. But, the power is in the air. The nights are warm, the tans are eager to show off and, as the year only starts after Carnival, plenty of time to enjoy every last drop of summer.
If every summer has a history, which will be to 2014? Here are our bets.

Summer Circus
Music, cuisine and many new features. This summer promises to be the most popular show in town. Great artists there is going to be there, as Caetano Veloso (releasing the DVD Abraçaço), Gal Costa, Paulinho da Viola, Nigger and Bad Religion. But the big news of the Flying Circus is project Popsicle, which will take place fortnightly Tuesdays with shows, new music and pool bath. That's right, pool! We must not forget the delicious showerhead. Very handy for a quick refresher.
More quiet than Ipanema beach and with events happening regularly in the late afternoon, the Pedra do Leme promises to be the meeting place that summer. #bomprobolso

On the beach of the Rudder (and now arriving in Ipanema) some tents provide a pool for the kids. A wonderful choice for mothers who can relax while the children have fun in the calm waters of the pool mounted right there on the sand.

Once you get finance your summer season in Catharsis, the party of Brazilian music produced by DJ Lili Prohmann will excite more once the stone of Helm in the sunset. Good music mix with a visually stunning is success. #bomprobolso
Flying Orchestra
Sets for many summers, the Flying Orchestra rehearsals in the gardens of the MAM don't disappoint and are still a hit in the summer of 2014.  #bomprobolso
On Saturdays (from 25/01) the folks at Bubble Publisher performs the happy hour, a doors open from the Publisher, with the right pool mounted on the roof of the former factory. The public can enjoy the beach chairs, beer and a delicious bath hose, are not charged tickets, no beer. The party happens to 4:0 pm to 10:0 pm. #bomprobolso

Of course ice cream always will rock in the summer heat, but this is special. Newly arrived at the River, the Mexican group Los Paleteros brings a popsicle that is irresistible and great for an ice cream on a stick. In addition to the refreshing fruit flavors, there's still the option with creamy filling to lick their chops.
Pool Party
With this heat that makes the summer holidays with swimming pools is fashionable. And when Miss pool, you may have a shower for a quick and necessary refreshed in the middle of the party.

Hula Hoop
Child's play that won the adults. Increasingly encountering people practicing the Hula-hoop in the squares, parks and even beaches. Great for fine tuning the waist, the new sets will be a hit in the summer.

Mini Cruisers
A certain skateboard, smaller than the common, has been seen on the streets of the city. Are the so-called mini cruisers, skateboards old school that, in the years 1970/1980, made success. They rely on bigger wheels, which guarantee higher performance in asphalt pitted, with ABEC 7, to give more speed, and also with a truck narrower, which helps cornering more closed than those of longboard. Another advantage is the size. With up to 58 cm in length, it occupies little space and is easy to carry. Is very practical for anyone who uses skateboarding as means of transport in cities.

Dawn in the Center (already happened)
The CCBB has prepared the project Dawn in the Center with different attractions that will make guys dance until morning. Djs and bands take turns on Saturday 28/12, 08/01 and 11/01. These days the cultural centre opens its doors for those who want to visit the exhibitions in madruga. #bomprobolso

Weekend roadmap: Xote lounge

Body with body, breathing on your neck and a dragging of feet that easily lasted until dawn. Doesn't take a genius to know what we're talking about the good old forró. What few know is that there needs to be no great genius to rock on the track. The secret: close your eyes, feel the music at the waist and collar the couple well close to you.

Why all these tips? Today, Friday, 13, is national day of Forró and, in tribute to him, our script is coming full of options to dance for two.

Weekend roadmap: father's day

How was born the father's day? The first time was celebrated around here was in August 14, 1953. The journalist Roberto Marinho brought the idea to Brazilian lands in 1950 with the intention to have more a commemorative date to warm up the trade and sell more newspapers. The month of August was the advertiser's choice By Bhering for being a period of little movement in trade.

The rest is history. The fact is the big subject around father's day is just one: present. Among the most cited are perfumes, books and drinks. Others are a bit more eccentric: from slippers, scraps in extended tracks, belts, pillowcases, aprons with funny designs and mugs of Homer Simpson.

But why always these same gifts? Why not take your father to dance all on the dance floor to shake your hair in a rock 'n' roll show, or simply take a drink at some young bar moderninhos?
With you, to give the best gift that his father can expect: a whole night enjoying at your side.

Antiques Fair of Praça XV

Always saw something special in street markets, perhaps due to the relaxed climate, unpredictable finds and the sympathy of the people. The antiques, in particular, stand out because of one thing: the stories. There is a hint of mystery and discovery in the Repertoire of every object and every person that works there, rescuing and keeping alive the story of so many generations.

One of the major antique fairs of Rio de Janeiro is the Praça XV, in the center of the city. Its beginning dates back to the 70 years and at that time she worked through barter. The fair brings together more than 350 official tents and is considered the largest antiques market of Latin America, running from 8:0 to 2:0 pm, every Saturday.

If she is really the largest fair of Latin America, I cannot say, but the diversity and comprehensiveness of articles that she meets, surely the positions among one of the most interesting. Those that involve people of all ages and promoting a true back to the past.

In two hours, doing a visual mining found several interesting objects and explored the stalls. Different from the Antiques Fair of Lavradio, which takes place on the first Saturday of the month, she is not so full and focuses more on bringing together antiques, new products and more expensive.

The first stop was a tent of articles of war. I really liked a collection of decorative swords. Replicas of famous movie swords and medieval times. Even had the sword of William Wallace, the protagonist of the film Braveheart, classic of 90 years. Another find was a bayonet, original WWII relic. The bayonet is a kind of dagger adaptable to the mouth of the barrel of firearms. The dealer and collector, owner of the tent, super gentil, makes mining even more curious, giving a history lesson and information about each object.

Further, I found a stall selling old radios of different models and eras, all working. The oldest was a Spica of 1958, in brown leather case, one of the first cell to reach radinhos in Brazil, imported from Japan. In addition to radios, the fair also features a wide variety of photographic cameras, clothing, magazines, toys, decorative items and a lot of unusual objects from different categories.

Between a Think Well Tec Toy, a brand-new Genius, a magazine with the cover of Glória Menezes and Tarcísio Meira, in the beginning of the wedding, with the headline ' Glory and Tarcísio, United by adultery ' and a collection of plates, found an edition of the newspaper O Pasquim. The paper was a strong instrument to fight censorship of the military dictatorship and epoch-making gathering big names such as Millôr Fernandes, Ziraldo Jaguar and. I had never seen a copy. Was willing to take home.

With the works of demolition of the viaduct of the Perimetral already underway, the merchants say that the fair will move to the nearby square, the Paço Imperial. It remains to be seen whether she will continue maintaining its essence, with the intimate and charming atmosphere, which it has until today. I hope so, and that the urban operation of the port, increase local culture, without transforming its essence that is also based on improvisation. The changes to come, but that the stories prevail.

Synopsis of the show MY PERFECT DAY
Mr M wakes up every day and goes out to the terrace of his apartment building in the center of a great city. He spends the day drinking coffee, reading the newspaper, playing ball, basking in the heat of noon. at dusk, with the neighbors listening to music and football on the radio, he feels more clearly the size of your loneliness. The night arrives and the lights of the buildings look like a starry sky. Resolves to sleep on the roof waiting for your touch phone. He is a teacher of languages. It is a clown, a loser who not only loses the ability to dream and the desire to play.

  • Theatrical Presentation: Vendimia Group Theater – Colombia | 11:0 | Free | Largo do Machado

Synopsis of the show LAS MUERTES DE LOS POETAS
The show is narrated by the Greek poet Aeschylus that is accompanied by two characters: La Zamba, which at first supports submissively, and death, waiting for his death. The story begins with the great Greek poet, which in turn represents the Eurocentrism, and La Zamba that, through the representation of various characters, embodies European poets.

However, with a euphoria produced by character Calibán "the storm", the Greek poet does not stand in search for Latin American writers and poets. After witnessing all the mixing through party-packed by Death-and to see the wealth of the continent represented by the characters of different cultures of the region, Aeschylus allows itself to be seduced by a Latin American tyrant and enters the game of representation.

Dipped in character and in a cathartic state produced by the despot, La Zamba and death take the poet into a trap and put inside a car to take you from village to village, and, as a puppet of the circus, tell the story of a Europe in decay and an America alive and popular.

Synopsis of the show AL FINAL DE LA NOCHE
The show is an inner dialogue. A tour of the place. The memory of one night or many nights that are one. Eve is the daughter of successive debates we will be sinking in a society without hope. Witness of infamous wars that embrace silencing its voice. Is a young girl living in a time when it is dangerous to be a woman. His grandparents and his sons were murdered, started her memory and banalizaram their dreams. Is a city dweller which prefers to run away. Opens doors that lead to houses closed, discovers the pain of being in the new millennium. Feel the death of son Nanayakkara rooted in his eager soul and lacking in love. On the edge, on the edge of a deep abyss and black as the end of the night, she recognizes and transitions in their interior worlds. Does the life, this Life, which is Vieja in its mysteries, listen to it. Learn then living, after all.
