Cafe Brazil (address and info)
When: Tuesday-Friday, 5:00-6:30pm; Saturday, 9-10:30pm
The hours are short, the selection limited, the discounts marginal. But the tradeoffs are totally charming. For one thing, the staff of this much-adored South American fixture couldn’t be more gracious, even during Saturday night happy hour (a rarity in itself). For another, your first round comes with free tapas, and they’re fantastic, especially the textbook tortilla española. Finally, on Tuesdays, you can even score a free caipirinha -- that is, if you’re willing to do a one-minute dance for the bartender. Which of course you are.
