RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Kicking off at 6PM on Saturday, February 25th, the Blue Agave bar in Ipanema will once again host its own Carnival bloco party. The inaugural event in 2010 is the stuff of legend for many expatriates in Rio, blending the euphoric Carnival spirit with a sense of familiarity and community for foreigners.
Although not technically an official bloco, in previous years the party at Blue Agave has drawn revelers catching a breather between blocos in Ipanema.
The bar always draws in crowds of passers-bys and creates it's own atmosphere . . .
