Clube do Feijão Amigo- Friendly Beans Club a long due event


Almost 35 years of their creation, the Friendly Bean Club has been in many  cities in Brazil, and many states, also in Japan and other countries too, but never in Orlando-America. Orlando was a big step, maybe the largest task of all and today after so long trying it finally happened.

Like many events in the Brazilian Community it was very festive, and for sure a happy moment that we all shared even when the  Club President Michel Tuma Ness gave an emotional speech, thanking all present and all the sponsors and supporters. The beans and excellent quality food was a Camila‘s Restaurant presentation of the traditional Brazilian Feijoada, at its best,  along with great service, all provided by Alex, Leo and their great crew. The cocktail was served by Cafe Mineiro with the usual quality and excelent taste.

Among all the people present were ,Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs represented by  Zoraida Velasco , Jay Santos (  Visit Orlando), Johana (Visit Orlando), Johnny Solano (Ramada), Amy Litter (CFBACC President),Mariana from Personal and Roberto Silva, Manuel Briote (Camilas Restaurant) represented by daughter Camila, Magdala & Claudio Alves (Magic Flight), Imre Baross (Pirates Adventure-Treasure Tavern), Roni Ambar ( CNTur), Marcelo Mattos (Fenactur)and Andrew Schiavoni ( Ramada Gateway), that received a Friendly Bean  Plate as a recognition for their work  and support.

A great night, with great people and great food, what else can we ask for? Let’s check the pictures.

    Allow me to make a correction; when you say “Almost 35 years of their creation, the Friendly Bean Club has been in many cities in Brazil, and many states, also in Japan and other countries too, but never in America. Orlando was a big step, maybe the largest task of all and today after so long trying it finally happened”, it is not a correct statement.
    On September 3rd, 1999, Clube do Feijão Amigo held a lunch at the Sheraton Bal Harbor, with delicious food and beans supplied by Camilla’s, and with sponsors like ACC Tours, Bancor Leaders in Travel, TransBrasil, Varig, Vasp, United, Embratur, Antarctica, RedeCard, TAM. I don’t recall many more details but believe we had close to 200 people in attendance. I have no pictures of the event, but will send you a picture of the bib, that was printed for the occasion.
