Thursday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – The Rio Times, in conjunction with the Association of Foreign Press Correspondents (Associação de Correspondentes da Imprensa Estrangeira, also known as ACIE) hosts the summer edition of the Rio Writer MixUp tonight at the Gringo Cafe in Ipanema. The event is an opportunity for fellow journalists, authors, screenwriters, bloggers, publishers and film producers to come together, network and talk about their work.
Stone Korshak, editor and publisher of The Rio Times explains, “The last edition was great, we had a focus on authors, this time we are focusing more on journalism in our partnership with ACIE, but it’s really for anyone who is writing -or wanting to write – anything.” The event is not only free to attend, but there will also be a ‘summer barbeque’ promotion, with R$6 longneck bottles of beer, one free longneck beer with any burger or rib platter and special white wine by-the-glass promotions from Fine Wines.
