Amy Winehouse staying in Santa Teresa

While we REALLY are not celebrity gawkers (we worked at The Four Seasons Hotel in NYC after all) BUT we must admit that it has been cool to have some (ok, lots of) paparazzi on our street and such a high-level celebrity here in Santa Teresa within a couple blocks of Casa Cool Beans for the past few days.  Amy Winehouse is here in Rio performing two shows and chose to stay at The Hotel Santa Teresa while here.  (We love the Hotel Santa Teresa too!)

According to information on www.AmyWineshouse.com, the two shows will be at Arena HSBC in Rio de Janeiro.  The first show sold out on January 11th, so a second show on January 10th was added recently.

Two million people joined party in Copacabana

The fireworks with soundtrack thrilled Cariocas and tourists!  New Years Eve 2010/11….

And yes, Casa Cool Beans was there and it was spectacular! We got our guests onto a bus here in Santa Teresa and down to our 8p-9p Metro entrance (pre-paid cards required) with ease and fun!
