Some PR stunts involving mostly-topless women to publicise the opening of the Viva Brazil Churrascaria on Castle Street didn’t seem to go down very well last week, but some additional pictures from the launch the other night seem to show things going with a swing.
Although there’s a lot of female skin on show again, it seems rather more in keeping with the Brazilian carnivale vibe.
The Culture Blog’s spies report that the food and cocktails are very good; and a bevvy of apparent celebs at the opening point to something guaranteed to feature in a lot of ‘guess who I saw last night’ tabloidy tittle-tattle in days and weeks to come.
Alex Curran, Clair Louise Catterall, Sasha Parker and Jess Fox and were among the people who the Culture Blog has never heard of. Our representatives claim it will be a ‘place to be seen’. Topless, perhaps?
