Closing Dinner at Fogo de ChãoThursday, January 19, 2017

Closing Dinner at Fogo de Chão
The MCAA Convention closes with a dinner where we'll induct the newest members of the Masonry Hall of Fame.
Fogo de Chão brings the flavors of Southern Brazil to Las Vegas. The Fogo de Chão dining experience is based on the centuries-old gaucho tradition known as churrasco, the gaucho way of roasting meats over pits of open fire. Operating under the unique service concept of espeto corrido ("continuous service" in Portuguese), Fogo's Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs present and slice 15 different cuts of meat tableside from roasting skewers. Guests control the pace of the meal by flipping a two-sided disk between green (more food, please) and red (I'm on a break now). With this unique system, patrons can enjoy the experience at their own pace.
MCAA Members: $210.00
