Café Brazil, which recently opened the Rum Room next door to the already pulsating restaurant at 4408 Lowell Boulevard, has just introduced a fantastic way to make a complete ass of yourself -- and you don't even have to open your mouth in the process. Except to drink, which you can do for free if you can jive.
Every Tuesday from 5 p.m. to close, the Rum Room's bartender becomes both judge and jury in the dance department, and in order for him to rule in your favor, you have to shimmy, sway, strut, prance, twist or two-step your way to his approval. The other catch? Your audition must be at least sixty seconds long. No exceptions.
The prize for your footwork? A free caipirinha. And if that first dance doesn't go quite as well as you'd planned, you've got the option of paying for your first drink and doing a little samba to get the second drink free. If that fails, there's always another bar.
