The city’s botecos once again provide the perfect excuse to sample their wares as, all month long, drinkers become willing judges in the vote for the best pub grub in town. Points are scored for the service, hygiene and, of course, the coldness of the beer, as well as the snacks themselves. Lesser-known drinking holes get the chance to strut their stuff, with Chapeu Mangueira favourite Bar do David and Nordestino Carioca (nordestinocarioca.com.br) in Jacarepaguá among the prizes in recent years.
