So, instead of celebrating St. Patrick's Day, which is really not the thing here in Brazil, I was invited to go with a group of my students to a club event called Heróis do Tempo (Heroes of Time). What a fun evening with a fabuloous group of people!
The party featured an "oldies" theme, which apparently these days means 80's music. I guess I'm now an "oldie" too, because I knew just about every song they played (most were in English). The first couple of hours was DJ'd but after that they had a live band that did some extremely good covers of 80's and 90's songs.
Why go to all the trouble of spiking and coloring your hair when you can just wear a wig? I think they have somehow missed the meaning of "punk".
The decor was really cool, this is the view from the upper level, which is a balcony running around the outer perimeter of the dance floor.
They were giving out various types of candy as party favors, one of which was an ice cream cone topped with some sort of coconut marshmallow candy to look like an ice cream. Cute idea.
And they were fun to play with, too! They made good silly props for goofing around.
Sing it girlfriend!
Nothing sexier than a guy carrying ICE CREAM!
Ahhhh, free smoothies!
It looks like "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling"...
The guys dancing (yes, guys actually dance in Brazil, awesome isn't it?), BEFORE...
... and AFTER realising they are dancing to the song "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". Look at those red faces!
Another view of the dance floor, now that it's filled with people.
A shot of the live band.
After two or three hours, we finally reached the point where we wanted to sit down.
Doesn't she have the face of an angel? Unlike me, she looks beautiful in every picture.
What does this mean, anyway? Peace on my eye?
Well anyway, whatever it is, we've all got it!
Saying goodbye to the Time Heroes. Notice the vintage TV which is considerably older than the 80's.
Us early birds headed home around 3:00 - the others stayed until morning! People just don't sleep here.
