Tucanos Brazilian Grill Celebrates the World Cup
Newport News, VA (June 9, 2014) - Tucanos Brazilian Grill, a festive, family friendly Brazilian steakhouse, today announced plans for a month-long celebration of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Tucanos will celebrate Brazil hosting soccer’s world championship with activities for the whole family yet featuring a decidedly Brazilian flair, including special menu items and “tailgate” carryout packages, in-restaurant viewing parties of select games, an online social media contest and by introducing what may be the next “must-have” World Cup souvenir -- the caxirola.
The caxirola (pron. ka-she-'roll-ah) -- created in the image of the caxixi, a traditional Brazilian percussion hand instrument – is a rhythmic noisemaker that has been dubbed the official musical instrument of this year’s World Cup in Brazil.
World Cup enthusiasts can get their own caxirola at Tucanos Brazilian Grill in a number of ways:
- Entering a social media contest through Tucanos’ Facebook page
- Attending viewing parties at your nearest Tucanos restaurant
- Reserving carryout orders for special World Cup package meals
- Participating in a youth soccer closing celebration event on July 12
- (Promotions and special events may vary; caxirola giveaways valid while supplies last.)
“We wanted to create a World Cup celebration that captured the spirit of Brazil,” said Gabby Jones, general manager of the Newport News restaurant.
Tucanos combines the unique serving style of the traditional Brazilian grilling experience with the flair and festivity of the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Tucanos is famous for its cuisine of churrasco skewers of specialty seasoned or marinated meats, vegetables and fresh pineapple sliced and served tableside that includes the abundant and award-winning Salad Festival featuring more than 70 hot and cold items.
Tucanos Brazilian Grill is located at 11820 Fountain Way, Newport News, Va. 23606. Reservations and carryout phone: (757) 597-9500.
