Unfortunately, our hometown team, Brazil, lost to Netherlands 2:1 in their World Cup quarter-final game today. We still love the Brazil team and are looking forward to the next World Cup games in 2014, which will be HELD IN BRAZIL!!! Hopefully playing in our home base will be lucky for us and we will win the World Cup next time!
Great job throughout the entire World Cup Brazil! We are sorry you did not make it all the way to win the finals, but we know you tried your best.
Keep your hopes up for the next world cup and grieve this World Cup loss
by treating yourself to a nice refreshing Leblon Caipirinha!

Leblon waited on pins and needles until Brazil defeated Korea in the World Cup! We celebrated the victory all over NYC, LA, and Chicago. In NYC the Leblonettes, Cachaça Tom and Vitoria Caipirinha partied at Sushi Samba, Via dei Mille, & Plataforma Churrascaria. On our travels we ran into the Mayor of Sao Paulo, Globo TV, Chris Tucker and Tyson Beckford, among thousands of Brazilians and Brazil lovers rooting for their team! There were firecrackers flaring, soccer playing in the streets, samba dancing from SAMBA NOVO, and even some table dancing. There was so much craziness by all that even a New York City Police horse was running loose throughout the streets. Chanting throughout the city streets you could hear OLÉ OLÉ OLÉ OLÉ BRAZIL!
