For those who didn’t make it to South America, Tucanos Brazilian Grill in City Center at Oyster Point is playing host to fútbol fans with authentic Brazilian food specials, game viewing parties and fan-friendly contests.
Tucanos is creating a World Cup celebration that captures the spirit of Brazil. If you remember the vuvuzela from the last World Cup four years ago, wait ‘till you see – and hear – the “Caxirola” (pron. ka-she-'roll-ah), the official noisemaker of Brazil’s World Cup. Tucanos just may be one of the few places that fans can get their hands on this limited supply instrument that could become the “must-have” souvenir of the summer!
