It treats every man over 30 who has his shit together and speaks portuguese..... very well. I will have to see how it compares to the Dominican Republic. Even the young foreign dudes would be pretty happy here, though dont expect girlfriend material or great weather.
I commend Bacchus for his solid data sheet of this city.

Would you recommend it to newbies in the Game aswell?
I am 22 and have my shit together, but I am looking for a place where I can go out hard and improove my game drasticly (starting from near zero that should be easy) by going out 4-6 Nights a week plus day gaming if I have to and I am awake.

Know that I have my finances handled I realy want to master Game and I am ready to do what ever it takes to do just that.

Since I am mooving to Brasil anyway primerly to focuss on eating good, working out and increasing my nethworth what citys do you think might suit me ase a young dark skinned cat from Europe ?

I don't want P4p bullshit, I want to develop my skills when it comes to getting laid.

At age 22 with finances in order while moving to Brazil, I'd recommend taking Portuguese classes. It's a MUST! You are not going to game women down there in English. That's the biggest difference between Portugal and Brazil as in nobody appears to speak English down there while everyone seems to in PT.

But if you are learning Portuguese in Brazil through a university or institution, that'll automatically be your excuse or storyline as you approach women..the dude from Germany who's in this country to learn Portuguese for "razoes de negocio." (business reasons). Then as your Portuguese gets better, you can bust out lines like "Me informe se voce quiser aprender alemao ou ingles porque eu posso te ensinar" which means let me know if you want to learn English or German because I can teach you.

A good book to buy for learning all the verb conjugations and basics before arriving is "Ponto de Encontro." It's an excellent book I used for my intensive Portuguese class as you can get the workbook and audio features too. The book has Portuguese from Portugal or Brazilian Portuguese. Ignore the funny Portugal slang, and go with the Brazilian version. Google translate will also help with pronunciations as well. Good look with your pursuits!

With regards to Fahrenheit, 61 degrees actually means around 46 degrees. 70 will actually feel like 55 as there seems to be a high altitude breeze here.

RE: DATA SHEET: Curitiba Brasil (Warning High end and short, excluding day game)
It's been a strange few days going from being in Belo Horizonte Sunday, to Ouro Preto yesterday..back to BH..and now in Curitiba. Quite the culture shock. Ppl here have been helpful, curious about me, and fairly open. Man do I miss Mineiras though, haha.

Be sure to bring warm clothing as the breeze & altitude makes the actual temperature feel colder than it is. Currently staying in Centro as the pace of life here seems pretty quick with ppl maneuvering around in a big rush constantly. Doing some work emails now but going to make a last ditch effort for Batel to see what's going on there. Btw, it's strange how many Asians I'm seeing as well. State of Parana apparently has the 2nd largest population of Asians after Sao Paulo.

I have a hard time being motivated for day game when I'm not going to be in a place for a long time, like a week or less, not so much because I can't bang quickly (I have done it the next day after a day game meet) but more because I know I have nothing to offer the girl other than some laughs and the good dick for a date or two.

But I'm in Brazil now and need to pick up my day game here.. It sucks because I only want to go for the hottest girls but a gringo in town for a short while doesn't usually have access to the top, top tier, even though I danced with, kissed and got a super hot girl's number last night in a club.

Update in Curitiba June 2013 (2 Nights Healthy, 2 Nights Sick)

Curitiba was the 2nd half of my June 2013 Brazil trip after Belo Horizonte and Ouro Preto. I was consistently happy with the vibes of BH, but Curitiba was a city where I experienced some inconsistent highs & lows. I had plans to move here for a project last month yet had to delay everything till this December. It didn’t stop me from visiting as I had to meet some important peeps & take care of other things. As a result, I come bearing a report of Curitiba for the month of June 2013.

My Lodging Accommodations:
Centro - I stayed in Hotel Centro Europeu in Praca Osorio, which was ok for the price. I booked off of http://www.despegar.com at a price of $53.00 a night but upon arrival, the hotel indicated there was an extra 10% tax I also had to pay up front. Location wise, it’s situated in Centro, which in my opinion is probably the most strategic neighborhood. The website I mentioned being despegar will have the best prices for hotels and lodging across Centro & Batel.

Logistically speaking, Centro is only a 10-15 minute walk away from Batel not to mention the lodging options there are cheaper. In Centro, you’ll have access to quick cheap delis, convenient stores, street food, and outdoor juice stands too whereas everything in Batel is a sit down restaurant with not too steep but higher price points. I ended up having a great strategic mid-point location in Centro.

Here’s why as you can see by the map (Airport is north of everything btw):
[Image: 9141274170_b988b649cf_b.jpg]

I didn’t know this upon immediate arrival in Curitiba but the neighborhoods to the east of Centro being Juveve, Alto da Gloria, Alto da Rua XV, and Hugo Lange are full of traditional western type bars & lounges…not the botecos where everyone sits out separate outdoor tables & affiliates only with their own group in Belo Horizonte but actual “barzinhos” where you can go and talk to other groups of people. The football stadium is also in Juveve. Here's the problem with the nightlife to the east. Everything outside of Rua Conselheiro Carrao is kind of scattered between the 4 neighborhoods so you would need a list of venue names to go from place to place via taxi, car, or even foot if you have the perseverance. It’s still a nice tidbit my future host family showed me as I thought the only nightlife in Curitiba was in Centro & Batel to start things off.

Cab rides between Centro and Batel should cost maybe 7-12 Reais whereas the ones between Centro & Juveve/Alto da Gloria/Alto da Rua XV/Hugo Lange are an estimated 12-16 Reais. Getting around without a car in CWB should be easy cheese unlike a lot of those cities in Santa Catarina south of Parana.

I didn’t get accustomed to the public transport system in Curitiba during my stay, but it’s well-known in the country as being the most efficient one with buses arriving frequently. Graduate programs in North America emphasizing sustainability & city planning spend a bit of time discussing Curitiba in their curriculum. If you ever had to meet a gal or peeps in a certain location, you could take that method too while cabbing it back home. More on nightlife later on.

Weather Precaution -
Oh this is important. Keep in mind that Curitiba has an actual winter from the months of May-October according to locals..sometimes it stretches out till November?

Sure 30-50F degrees shouldn't be so bad, but you have to realize the city is situated on a high altitude with a never ending cold breeze that lasts all day. If it's 70 degrees F, then the breeze will make it feel like 57 degrees F. If it's 50 degrees F, then it will feel like 42 F. I think you all catch my drift here. Coldest major city in Brazil at the highest altitude in terms of main municipalities here. Bring sweaters, scarves to protect yor neck from the breeze, and a coat.

I think I eventually got sick from experiencing different climates in a 5-6 day span (BH, Ouro Preto, then CWB) not to mention I tried going out for drinks on too many nights consecutively while dealing with quite a few responsibilities.

Profiling the Locals of Curitiba

1) These are known to be the coldest in all of Brazil. I’m not sure what it’s like in say Vitoria or Fortaleza as certain people in the RVF community have complained about, but many business tourists that come to Curitiba will bring that topic up. This includes people from other parts of Parana and in the states south being Santa Catarina & Rio Grande do Sul who claim that Curitibanos are “fechados” or “bem-reservados” (closed or well-reserved).

It's mainly Southern Brazilians and Paulistas that complain about Curitibanos. If you're from another part of Brazil..then there's a good chance you probably don't even recognize Curitiba, haha.

2) If saying hi (tudo bem or bom dia) with a smile to Curitiba locals..you might not get a response. If you ask an objective question about how to get somewhere, they will point you in the right direction with a smile & sometimes talk in abundance. These people speak fast yet concisely in getting their message across immediately. It’s almost like New Yorkers in a sense as they'll open up after a serious inquiry.

3) Outside of the airport, English levels in this city are probably worse than Belo Horizonte. Not that there are too many English speakers in BH to begin with, but it’s even less here in CWB.

4) People in general walk pretty fast here minding their own business without making eye contact. More on this later on.

5) Curitiba, Parana has the 2nd largest Polish diaspora in the world after Chicago, Illinois. Other ethnicities that make up the mix here include Natives, Ukrainians, Germans, African array, Italians, Lebanese, and Japanese. What many people tend to forget about Parana is that they have the 2nd largest Japanese & Asian population in the country after of course Sao Paulo state. Despite this, people will still ask Asians what kind they are & initiate conversations based on that in a very friendly way so I see it as a plus.

6) 50% of the locals in Curitiba are said to be from different parts of the country. Many people move here from Sao Paulo to avoid the chaos of their home city/state, other parts of Parana, different areas of states south as CWB is the main economic hub of So. Brazil, and of course various regions of the country. There are also quite a bit from Latin America like Chile, Peru, etc working here in the service industry. They will ask where you are from as a tourist and then mention their home country perhaps seeing if you know Spanish too.

Women in Curitiba
7) The women here are..pretty cold. You’re not going to get the friendly elegance of Gauchas in Rio Grande do Sul or the warmth & smiles of a Mineira here. Though Paulistas can be kind of cocky in an unintentionally humorous way, they really open up as being very friendly. Curitibanas though take quite a bit of work to penetrate. It’s almost like being in Eastern Europe again except you are going to find more outgoing gals in most of Poland, CR, and Slovakia. These chicks in a sense remind me of Serbian ones in Belgrade that will make no eye contact whatsoever.

With intermediate to advanced Portuguese skills, persistence, and a tendency to ask dumb objective questions, these are gals that will open up.

Bad news:
Coldest women in Brazil from my experiences.

Good news:
A) You control your own destiny at the bars & initiative.
B) Still more outgoing than the Ipanema/Leblon chicks in Rio.
C) More open than gals in Budapest, Hungary.
D) Easier than Catalan chicks in Barcelona.
E) Possible to get laid in a week with fairly decent-strong Portuguese (raises hand)
F) Tougher shields initially but it’s open game in a bar setting, which Curitiba possesses a lot of.
G) As mentioned earlier…50% of Curitibanos are not from the city. If you meet a girl who was originally from elsewhere while studying or working in the city, she is likely to be more outgoing while introducing you to her native Curitiba female friends in general.
H) High quantities of good looking women to target here.
I) These gals at heart claim to be diehard Brazilians and are generally very kind people despite the cold fronts. Not many tourists in general come to Curitiba so they will be excited to get acquainted with you once you get through the rude first impressions.
J) Out at the bars, clubs, and live music venues, you'll have some interaction with more milfy type chicks in their mid-30s to 40s. One thing I noticed in Belo Horizonte was that most of the women there were from their early 20s to early 30s while aging very gracefully, but you'll have some older targets to work with here in Curitiba if that is your thing.

Guys in Curitiba
8) Whereas the dudes in Belo Horizonte were more of the outgoing stylish type, you’ll see some scrawny guys here that look straight of of FSU. Predominantly speaking, you’re going to see a lot of meat heads with muscle tees out at the bars, lounges, and clubs. Keep in mind Curitiba is a major training ground for what is it UFC/MMA fighting? I believe Anderson Silva is from this city too. Even if many are not officially MMA fighters, they seem to be aspiring muscle men as you’ll see a lot of jacked meat heads at night. These are guys I could probably outgame, but you gotta be careful not to hit on the wrong girl or quickly give the thumbs up when accidentally bumping into one as they will not hesitate to brawl. I witnessed a big fight my first night with some good shots and bleeding as a result.

Miscellaneous Note
9) This city is about a 2-3 hour drive away from Balneariu Camboriu/Floripa as the rich folks in Curitiba will have 2nd homes in BC, but apparently not so much in Floripa. Curitibanos are also well-acquainted with Sao Paulo & love the underground metro system there. Why? Guess what other city 5 hours northeast of Curitiba holds all the concerts when big name foreign musicians come into Brazil?

While living in Curitiba..you'll have some fairly affordable options for "getting out" of the city for a change of pace.

Profiling the Tourists of Curitiba

1) While Sao Paulo is the economic capital of Brazil, I’d label Curitiba as the economic capital of So. Brazil that connects the South to the rest of the country. You will therefore meet predominantly business tourists from all over Brazil staying in a hotel out of Centro or Batel. With lower property leases for short-term events & hotel costs, it’s no wonder there are many conventions held in Curitiba instead of Sampa or Rio that attract people from other countries in Latin America too.

2) Most of the business tourists will stay only during the weekdays and leave on the weekends. Every now and then, you’ll get some families visiting Curitiba on the weekends as some of the good looking female ones will be visiting relatives/friends. A big draw for business tourists too would be Linha Turismo. See next section.

Daygame Suggestions –

Linha Turismo – This is a tourism line that takes passengers at 25 different stops around the city from destination to destination. To get on at first, you will need 30 Reais or $15.00 USD. Once paying that, you will have 5 tickets to ensure being able to enter again if you decide to stop off at say Tangua Park, Jardim Botanico, or the Arame Opera House.

http://www.curitiba.pr.gov.br/idioma/ing...nhaturismo

You would think only tourists utilize Linha Turismo, but a ton of locals like to engage in this activity…esp on Fridays as it’s a good excuse to get off of work or on weekends. It would be comparable to say San Diego residents taking a day off to indulge in their conveniently located world famous zoo. This especially applies to friends & family that are visiting locals in Curitiba so this is all the more reason to see all the sights via Linha Turismo where surprisingly everybody is super outgoing & helpful. Business tourists and young teenagers stopping in the city all partake too. Solid for daygame or to make friends at least.

Santa Felicidade & Madalosso – Santa Felicidade is a neighborhood with the most well-nown Italian restaurants in Curitiba. It’s located just northwest of Bariqui Park or Parque Barigui in Portuguese. Lot of hotties eating lunch in the Italian restaurants with Madalosso being the see & be seen place. That same restaurant is typically packed on Sundays as it’s a enormous one with multiple banquet rooms that apparently get full too. As for pricing, I can’t reveal it since my future host family paid for the meal but everything is brought out by waiters as you merely say yes or no to each dish with no menus involved. The restaurant brews it’s own beer, which I whole-heartedly recommend too.

http://www.madalosso.com.br/

This place is a far walk from Centro I believe 4-6 miles so you can always bus it out. After finishing a meal, you could walk around the neighborhood & then trot your bloated ass back to Centro/Batel as I’m sure the exercise would be vital to offset the binge eating.

Other Options:
As for other warnings about daygame, you could maybe try Centro but I will advise that it's tough. Curitibanos in Centro are always walking 100 miles per hour with their heads down. Pickpockets and scammers are typically the only people who will greet with a "tudo bem" in a shady manner so that doesn’t exactly help the cause either. I would only recommend taking the initiative in a café of some sort with seating.

As for malls..I don’t know which ones are best yet. I got a good feel for two malls in Belo Horizonte, but getting sick my last two days in Curitiba didn’t help matters not to mention I had interviews & commitments with old friends.

Barigui Park is a tough place to daygame as the people working out there are all about minding their own business. Brings me to my next point.

Night Game

Before I go off on dinner & nightlife venues, let’s get back to the topic of Barigui Park.

Whereas people working out there on weekday afternoons are a bit more closed off, I'd say it gets to be more social & lively at night. Was dropped off at Barigui after Linha Turismo at around 7:30 PM as I found the runners to be more outgoing & talkative altogether while wearing their nicest athletic gear in the evening. I however didn’t have my running clothes on hand while looking for a way home nursing a bad head cold, but this is something that is worth giving a shot here in Curitiba.

General List of Bars/Restaurants in Curitiba:
http://www.afterhour.com.br/bares-e-rest...ilo=&pag=9

I came across that link after leaving Curitiba Ironically.

Here’s another good site of happenings around Curitiba as they have partner links to other Brazilian cities too:
http://www.festadasemana.com.br/curitiba/

Centro – Centro is a neighborhood with more dive-ish eat & drink places. It’s absolutely dead during the first three weeknights, but things kinda get crazy with a younger clientele there starting Thursday evenings. I unfortunately do not have any reports on that, but everything here is a good place to be at least for pregaming with cheaper prices. There is some good stuff just a block south of Praca Ossorio though I do not have specific venue names.

The one place I recommend on the cusp of Batel/Centro is Aos Democratas. They close early on Wednesdays at say 1AM, but are open later days afterwards of course. Small intimate bar area with people standing around so you’ll be able to get some good approaches in. It’s appears to be crowded during Happy Hour too so go from 7-11:30 PM for some possibly good approaches.

Batel – The main nightlife area in Curitiba of course. Avenida Batel is the main horizontal street on the southernmost tip of the neighborhood that has all the big name venues like Taj (Sushi Restaurant/Lounge), Sheridan’s (Hole in wall Irish type bar), Soviet Vodka Bar, Duc Club (top notch club on weekends), Taboo (Supper club on weekends that hosts special house music events occasionally), Hold Em Country Bar (Layout of a yuppy patio bar with crappy Sertanejo music), and the spot of my pickup being Santa Marta (Live crappy Sertanejo music). Just about every place including the generic Irish pubs on Avenida Batel will have a minimum 10 Reais cover charge just FYI.

The horizontal parallel streets north of Avenida Batel are where all your other venues are going to be located at such as Slainte Irish Bar, Bar Curityba, and Barba where I don't believe have cover. There’s a whole lot more bar/lounge like venues offered in Batel I didn’t mention. The longest standing club in Curitiba is on Avenida Vicente Machado being Lique. Expect some sort of cover charge/minimum drink consumption rule there however.

As for clubs, Duc, Club Vibe, DJ Room and Lique are the most popular options now at least in Batel with Caribbean Disco Club being the it spot in Reboucas south of Centro. One daughter in my future host family recommended Lique for the cream of the crop skinny club goer chicks. I might also have to ask where the sex hotels are too seeing how she has a boyfriend while living at home with her mom, lol.

Reboucas - I didn't get a chance to check out Reboucas but this is a neighborhood 1-2 KM south of Centro with quite a few bars. Check out the map I posted above for a good barometer on where that might be located. The popular club now there is Caribbean Disco Club.

East Side Curitiba (Juveve, Alto da Gloria, Alto da Rua XV, and Hugo Lange)

The main street in Juveve is Rua Conselheiro Carrao, which is next to the soccer stadium. Despite the location, most of the bars on Rua Conselheiro Carrao looked to be more posh instead of the casual sporty type. I didn't get to walk inside any of them but the ones that stood out while driving by were Baroneza and Devassa.

I had dinner on a Thursday night with some people as we tried going to Bar Canabenta first. It was a trendy bar/restaurant with a nice outdoor patio full of hot professional chicks. The line to get in however was ridic. As a result we ended up having dinner at a place called Carmel, which would be a nice date venue. There may be some good gaming opportunities if sitting inside there, but Bar Canabenta appears to be a better bet.

If you look at the websites with bar listings I posted above, you'll see many venues within the area so that would be your best choice in researching these 4 neighborhoods. Logically speaking..the best place to start though would be Rua Conselheiro Carrao because it's a block area full of places you can navigate easily by foot. From that point..you can ask locals about other places as they might invite you out or send you in the right direction.

Most bars in Curitiba are going to start hopping Thursdays-Saturdays so I wouldn't really bother going out late before that. However, it shouldn't deter you from drinking from happy hour periods till about 11 PM on Tuesdays & Wednesdays as Aos Democratas is a good place for that at least crowd wise. Remember that your health comes first as going all out on a weekday could result in sickness come peak party nights. I had to learn that the hard way in Curitiba.

Santa Marta on Tuesday Nights
While other places shut down between 11-1AM in Batel, Santa Marta is the only poppin venue open till about 3-4AM on Tuesday nights. They're however closed on Wednesdays though but resume regular crazy hours Thursday again.

I tried looking for a place to drink around 12AM in Batel my first Tuesday night as all the bouncers and people on the street pointed me towards Santa Marta. The first people I met in line in at the bar were some cool dentists from Santiago, Chile in town for a convention. They were essentially my last minute wingmen. Upon entering..we were hit with awful live sertanejo music and then told to go downstairs because the upstairs was a "VIP" area, which appeared pretty crowded. As the only Asian guy in the SM, I was immediately scoped out by this one chick who was curious about my origins as we conversed in only Portuguese for 10-15 minutes before breaking things off cordially so I could find my Chilean friends.

After scoping out the scene with some attractive ladies in attendance, we ran across the first girl again as we momentarily held hands in a flirtatious manner during the 2nd encounter as she referred to me as "querido, demais." I knew I had it in the bag if I wanted to, but then went outside with my friends for a smoke.

Good convos were had in the patio as a lot of people started bumming cigarettes from my friends. Since they were then swarmed with kind attention for also being intriguing Chileans, I then drifted back inside to get a 2nd drink. The next gal I ran across was this milfy chick who kind of looked Eastern European so I opened with "voce parece muito polonesa, nao e?" That translated into "you seem very Polish eh?" She then excitingly revealed herself as a Brazilian of Polish descent as things hit off well. I got the feeling I wasn't going to seal the deal so tried exchanging info after a good 10-15 minutes talking. During the attempted switch, the first girl I encountered came roaring back with a jealous kiss while then dragging me upstairs into VIP as we danced, got complimentary drinks, met her other friends, and then made out.

Yeah she was pretty wasted & assertive, but I said "why not" to the easy first night bang here in CWB. My choices were the 7-7.5 milfy chick who wasn't going to bang first night or this 6.5-7 who was eager for a lay. The chick was also a professional in CWB from a small town in Santa Catarina as transplants will typically be more eager to meet strangers especially in a place like Curitiba where locals tend to be closed off initially. On the way out, we came across a really big fight with meat heads railing on each other. Bouncers tried restraining everybody but the verbal shots probably continued as we left the bar.

Cute face, decent body..but nothing to brag about. She wanted to hang out rest of the week I stayed even though I couldn't remember her name. I then found her name and number on my notes app of my phone so deleted it right away that next day. At that point...I was also really tired of crappy sertanejo music in terms of wasting my energy & spending money in those venues.

Overall Impression of Curitiba:
With intermediate to advanced level Portuguese & good game, I think one could really wreck shop here in a week's or a weekend's stay. With a ton of bar options situated south, east, and west of Centro where all the hotels are, this city is pretty convenient logistically speaking. High end clubs could be an option but I get the impression that one could live here for 3-4 months and not really experience all the bars alone that do not require a cover charge.

The bad news is that the people can be pretty cold first impression wise as it would take a lot of resiliency in dealing with the odd behavior of locals in Curitiba. With regards to overall vibes, I wouldn't say Curitiba is the most pleasant city to wake up to on a daily basis though it's a damn solid city on paper providing people with just about every convenient resource you could ask for. It's an environment where you could be on an overall high from a lay or just great times with a solid experience yet that positive momentum wouldn't necessarily carry over towards interacting with new strangers. Quite an odd abstract feeling I can't put into words.

As for the good news again, this is a city that's strategically located between hot spots like Sao Paulo, Londrina, Foz do Iguacu, and the beach towns of Santa Catarina being Floripa or Balneariu Camboriu. Cabs, restaurants, bars, and cafe food within town are cheaper than places like Belo Horizonte, Floripa, or Rio too as the infrastructure & offerings of the city will afford you great chances to have fun without necessarily breaking the bank. I stayed in Curitiba from a Tuesday afternoon till Saturday morning as I got a bad head cold Thursday preventing me from really doing night approaches the next couple of nights.

Most effective cold medicine I recommend buying while in Brazil if you forget your own btw:

If healthy, I feel like I could've done more damage especially with the options Curitiba offers. I eventually recovered Saturday morning at 100% after a great night's rest and made it to Balneariu Camboriu where I spent that weekend doing family-related outdoorsy activities with old friends & a night out Saturday...with my luck involved crappy Sertanejo music again, lol. Although I would probably be happiest overall in say Belo Horizonte or Porto Alegre, there was one moment that stood out particularly as I arrived back in Curitiba from BC. The feeling that I was ready to start another work week & daily routine right then at that point....in Curitiba gave me the sense that I was likely meant to live there for some time as will be the case later on this year with my pending move. Instead..it was off to the airport from the bus station with a layover in Rio before landing back home in the States.

RE: DATA SHEET: Curitiba Brasil (Warning High end and short, excluding day game)
Just wanted to add that downtown floripa is expensive and crappy during the winter..Not worth it as others have said

I could have stayed near some bars in lagoa but I had to be downtown for other reasons. I'm not too jazzed about the idea of paying 30 rs and up to get into clubs with pretty girls.

I like Rio and Porto alegre more.

Really nice write up on Curitiba. I will add my thoughts shortly

Thanks for the notice on Floripa. There are some gals from my past there I plan on visiting, but just FYI....the bars/lodging, etc in Lagoa da Conceição are a huge rip off too. There's an English lady who owns a Thai restaurant. Cool milf type chick who thinks Floripa is bland year round while São Paulo is too expensive. She in turn will charge 30-40 Reais for a Pad Thai at her place lol. Ethnic foods, restaurants, etc in Lagoa were a rip off. Black Swan however was a good cheap dive bar with great cover bands while Confraria unfortunately is only open at the most sporadic times for special events.

Can't wait to hear your input on Curitiba btw so thanks for responding!

Sertanejo really is god awful. I avoid Sertanejo baladas like the plague. On the rare occasions where I got suckered into going I had no luck with the females. I think the music just kills my whole vibe and the girls can read on my face that I am judging them for their horrific taste.

Ah it was an outdoorsy family picnic event that involved alcohol, food, etc. There were some young single chicks there too, but many families as I was with one myself. It was an outdoor concert for Festa de Juninas in the middle of nowhere farm just outside of Balneariu.

Yeah the whole sound of Sertanejo kills everything about my vibe. When I went to Chalezinho in BH Sat night, I actually put in more approaches on chicks bc of the great Samba variety band. Sunday night...my game went to waste bc of Sertanejo...but at least came away with a short makeout on the smoking patio with better interactions overall there.

The first bar I went to in Floripa Dec 2011 was also Sertanejo where I struck out miserably too. The worst is when you pay cover to walk into a bar, and then there is a band playing that music. It's almost like an obligation to stay bc of the 15-20 Reais entrance fee.

Well, be sure to avoid Shed (and it's clone, Woods) next time you're in Balneário Camboriú; R$ 70 cover and R$ 15 beer.

Actually, I think I remember seeing a Woods in Curitiba. It probably has a lower cover than the one in BC... but same shit.

Much appreciated on the advice. I've heard of Wood's as I'll be sure to avoid it. When I walked by Hold em Country Bar off Avenida Batel in CWB, I saw some cute chicks on the patio. No live band, but the music playing on the speakers was enough to make me keep walking by the place. Heck Sertanejo has made N. American country music much more tolerable for me.

Well...back in Curitiba..except I'm here long-term now. Had mixed feelings about the place in the past...but now I'm loving it. Lot of IOI & daygame opportunities in Agua Verde which is south of Batel. Rebouças is also another neighborhood with character. This city like Belo Horizonte are very deep 2nd tier cities in that they take awhile to explore everything...= better chances of hooking up here with the best talent requires longer stays.

I'd say BH and POA = elegant sweet charming types
Sampa & CWB = edgier exotic looking women

It will be more advantageous being here long-term instead of not trying my hardest to balance responsibilities and trying to hook up with the hottest chicks in only 2.5 days resulting in sickness.

Next challenge...finding a place to stay...

RE: DATA SHEET: Curitiba Brasil (Warning High end and short, excluding day game)
Great post man. I will add a few things to this.

Quote:I didn’t get accustomed to the public transport system in Curitiba during my stay, but it’s well-known in the country as being the most efficient one with buses arriving frequently.
Buses cost $3.70 one way and they are a bit confusing because nobody really uses the numbers here, only the end destination. But Google maps still works well enough.

Quote:Weather Precaution
This cannot be overstated. This place rained a lot while I was here from end of January to early March. I got quite depressed after a while because of the weather actually.

Quote:Women in Curitiba
The women here are..pretty cold.
Keep in mind that I didn't really do much gaming here as I was visiting a girl. However, there are some very nice looking light-skinned girls here. The Ukrainian/Polish influence is pretty interesting and obvious.

I also saw a very entertaining girl fight (very bloody) mid-day on one of my first days walking around in the centro on Rua Novembro XV. It didn't stop until some concerned lady worker working in a pharmacy ran outside to drag the one girl off the other one who was getting absolutely pummelled. Random yes, but it was the only fight I've seen in Brazil so far so thought it was worth mentioning.[/quote]

Quote:Miscellaneous Note
...
While living in Curitiba..you'll have some fairly affordable options for "getting out" of the city for a change of pace.
I would definitely suggest having a look at Ilha do Mel if you get a chance. You can get a bus to Ponto do Sul (I drove with my girl) and then take a cheap 30 minute ferry ride (like R$35 R/T) from the port at Pontol do Sul. The island itself is a great place to take a girl for a long weekend. No cars on the island and many very nice beaches and decent pousadas to sleep and also eat fresh seafood.

Quote:Daygame Suggestions
...
As for other warnings about daygame, you could maybe try Centro but I will advise that it's tough. Curitibanos in Centro are always walking 100 miles per hour with their heads down.
This very well may be true but I did actually see a lot of very nice talent walking around on the main pedestrian street in Centro, Rua Novembro XV during midday and from 3-6PM. Especially around the park Praça General Osorio. I would say if you are well-dressed you shouldn't have problems but I agree that their are many people here wearing vests trying to chat you up and get you to donate to their cause.

Quote:As for malls..I don’t know which ones are best yet.
For the hottest, upper class, and probably also most difficult to game girls, I would say that Patio Batel mall seemed like it had great talent. Well-dressed women of all ages, although plenty of bored housewives with money either drinking champagne or getting their nails done at 2PM on a Tuesday.

Quote:Barigui Park is a tough place to daygame as the people working out there are all about minding their own business.
While this may be true, it is still a great place to work out and get in a nice long run. One of the better public parks I've been to in Latin America.

BEER GAME AND FOOD GAME
I will add to this some cool spots that I was introduced to by my girl while here. Not all necessarily are good for gaming, but it's important to know where to find the good beer and eats anyway...

Cervejaria Bodebrown - R. Carlos de Laet, 1015 - Hauer - A very good microbrewery just a bit south and east of centro. They have a festival once every 3 months or so and have another one coming up in March or April I think. I went to their summer beer fest in January and was blown away at the variety and quality of beer that these guys make. Visiting the place isn't great because it is not an actual brew pub but they have visiting hours on weekends where you can fill growlers which may be worthwhile.

Meat Pack House - Av. Vicente Machado, 841 - This is a newer place that has draft beer with a rotating list of like 4 or 5 every day, except I believe they are closed on Monday. The draw here is to get a good craft beer on draft (choppe) and drink it on the sidewalk in a little mini street party. The age range here goes from 18 to maybe 25 or 27, but I did see some very cute girls here. Generally, the quality isn't consistent but you do see some cute ones on occasion.

Whatafuck Burger - Next door to Meat Pack - Very respectable burgers here starting at R$10. I think it is popular because the burgers are actually not bad and very cheap. I like the Calabresa sausage one with cheese.

Lucca Cafes Especias - Alameda Pres. Taunay, 40 - Batel - This place has actually very respectable Feijoada on Wednesdays. It gets pretty busy so get here either just before 12 or after like 1:30.

Sorveteria Pedacinho do Nordeste - R. Marquês do Paraná, 947 - Água Verde - My favorite place to get açaí in Curitiba. It is a perfect balance of earthy and sweet, but not too sweet. Great date place as well with other pretty tasty sorbets and ice creams with flavors from the NE of Brazil.

Barbaran Bar - Alameda Augusto Stellfeld, 799 - Centro - Kind of a divey place. I think it used to serve (or still does) as a Ukrainian club? But anyway, they have reasonably cheap drinks here but the main draw for me is the bolinhos which are quite tasty, fresh, and cheap. Gets busy and at times rowdy during prime time evenings.

Barbarium Beer Pub - R. Chile, 1765 - Rebouças - Another great beer bar. Look for their happy hour specials which I believe is something like 6-8 or 6:30-8:30 where they have select draft craft beers at 2X1. Also you have to try their carne de onça which is a marinated raw ground beef plate served with bread. Very interesting and very tasty.

Barolo Trattoria - Avenida Silva Jardim, 2487 - Batel - Great homemade Italian food, specifically the pasta dishes. I recommend anything with cream and anything with mushrooms. Solid choice. A little pricey, but one dish is enough for two super hungry people.

Missal Shwarma - R. Nilo Cairo, 300 - Good, quick, and cheap shwarma place. I like their beef one. Also do go heavy on their garlic sauce, it is very tasty and garlicky.

Maru Oriental Cuisine - Al. Dr. Carlos de Carvalho, 74 - Very good "por kilo" Japanese food place with decent sushi and sashimi options. Great to come here for lunch, their price is around R$50-60/kilo.

Cantinho da Bica - R. João Tschannerl, 1009 - Very good little local place with pork ribs being their claim to fame. We went on Saturday when they also had their feijoada, which was very good also, albeit slightly salty. You get a TON of food and the prices are fair.

La Panoteca - R. Gastão Câmara, 384 - If you are craving bread, this should be your stop. Seriously this is the best bread I've had in Brazil - it is made by a Uruguayan guy who knows his shit. They have shitty hours and are only open from like 4PM-8PM during M-Saturday, but I was here many times getting my bread fix during my Curitiba visit. These guys knew me by name. Bread is expensive (like R$17 or so for a big loaf of multigrain) but worth every centavo.

Sunday Market in Centro - This is a cool little market in the historic district of the centro. I recommend a place here called Toca Mineira for their fried cassava cakes with carne seca. Very tasty especially with some of their fiery hot sauce on top...be careful with that stuff...

Adele Gastronomia - Al. D. Pedro II, 628 - A small little place with a por kilo or "livre" style with very fresh and tasty grub. I always opted for the all you can eat "livre" option which for R$37 or so, I always felt was worth it considering how much I can eat. Good date spot also.

Churrascaria Arco Íris - R. Maestro Carlos Frank, 2287 - Boqueirão - This is a Brazilian Rodizio style place that is quite a bit outside of Curitiba city center, but I'd say it is worth the trip for sure. It was around R$80/person for all-you-can eat, with good quality meats like ribeyes, NY strips, lamb shank, picanha, etc. Their meat is the main draw here, their other foods were also good but I'd come here for the meats which were well-seasoned and cooked.

Quote:Overall Impression of Curitiba:
Bad news for me was not that many people spoke English. My portuguese is horrible. It is a nice and reasonably clean city with respectable food options, a good craft beer scene, and great coffee with plenty of pretty girls. The weather and the English proficiency would probably be my two biggest critiques of this place.

I probably couldn't live here solely because of the weather. But it was certainly cool visiting this off-the-beaten track Brazilian city that doesn't see many tourists, Brazilian or foreign.

RE: DATA SHEET: Curitiba Brasil (Warning High end and short, excluding day game)
^ This is great field work. During your stay from Mid-January till early March, there is a pretty big exodus of people that leave town every weekend to the beach or take extended vacations from NYE to Carnaval.

If one were to speak Portuguese, its a great way to start conversations saying things like "oh hey the city is quite empty yeah?" during day game or night game attempts. Still plenty of good looking women in town from NYE till about Carnaval as the atmosphere is quite pleasant.

I would just highly advise spending the last 10 days of December in Curitiba or any other interior city like Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Goiânia, etc. Families spend Christmas Eve together only for friends to go out to big Christmas parties at the clubs & bars afterwards. However, the bitch shields are crazy high as they're just wanting to spend time with friends opposed to hooking up. Christmas Day - people head straight for beaches.

RE: DATA SHEET: Curitiba Brasil (Warning High end and short, excluding day game)
I personally don't think it would make sense to travel from abroad to Curitiba just for the women, but the place can be a goldmine if you find yourself in Brazil and are more into the Eastern European look, as opposed to the typical Latina. Lots of Polish and Ukrainian descent there. In fact, it's the second city in the world with the highest amount of Polish descendants outside of Poland, Chicago being the first. For the Germanic look, go further south in Brazil instead, to Santa Catarina or Rio Grande do Sul states, where the women are sexier and friendlier.

Back to Curitiba, it's possible to kill it there once you have your logistics tight and are able to make repeated visits. Rent a car at the airport (you can get good deals on Kayak) and stay in a centrally located area such as Batel or Centro. AirBNB is usually pricy, so a 3 or 4-star hotel is a better bet. In my experience, the difference from the rest of Brazil is that the local girls like tall men who are confident enough to approach and escalate without being too caveman-ish. One must also have a tolerance for cold demeanour-- remember Roosh employing Bernie's game in Ukraine, a milder version applies here. ONS are difficult, but first date bangs are very common (almost standard in my experience), even from online game.

RE: DATA SHEET: Curitiba Brasil (Warning High end and short, excluding day game)
WestCoast, Brosemite and bootyhuntah really put in some great intel but it's a bit dated, so I'll add my two cents from a recent stay.

Duration: 17 days (4 pre-Carnaval, 13 post-Carnaval)

Women:

Tonnes of girls in the 7-9 range, and some more 6 cuties. Like previously mentioned, a lot of them have the European genetics (IE Italian, Polish, German descent) which when combined with the Brazilian curves are just spectacular. They are exactly my type here.

Unfortunately, my Portuguese is basic (Just completed Pimsleur Unit 1 level), and speaking English at night didn't have as much DHV value as other places. A lot of girls either genuinely said "no speaking English" or just used it to brush me off. Due to my shitty Portuguese, I didn't attempt more than one day of day game, which yielded no results anyway. Instead, I just went out at night with friends and talked to girls at bars and clubs.

It's hard to Game here without intermediate level Portuguese and universally, height / good looks helps a lot as well, especially with the younger girls. Tinder had a lot of talent but I found myself in a lot of dumb Whatsapp chats to nowhere after getting the # and getting silence or some excuse after pushing to meet up.

I saw some smooth Brazilian player friends crush it here and escalate / make-out / pull from the club, but they are good looking and spit good game in Portuguese, as well as have local status. It was pretty inspiring to see them show me their rolodex pics of 8's and 9's they've banged or are hooking up with.

That said, many friends have told me that Curitibanas have a reputation for being cold (fria) and closed (fechadas) so they're "hard to get." It had something to do with the chilly / rainy weather apparently.

Men

It helps to roll with local Brazilian guy friends and wingman, which I was very fortunate to have. It also makes going out a lot more fun and a lot of the guys who go out at night here often have connections to bouncers, clubs, and trendy events. Also, a few local dudes I met just randomly talking in clubs were more than happy to wing me and try to open sets together. I encountered no direct cock-blocking.

That said, there is a lot of indirect competition as I saw a lot of tall, fit, and good looking dudes at the clubs and Brazilians are definitely not afraid to go for the kiss or escalate quickly and persistently.

Long story short - try to bring some value, make some local friends and it will pay off big time.

Nightgame Venues: As mentioned, I mostly just went out with local friends at night so am more qualified to speak about the night game opportunities here.

Shopping Hauer: Basically there's a liquor store where you can sit down outside, and a whole bunch of cheap craft beer places, with a fish and chips and burger place all beside one another. Beers range between 8 R's for a single or 15 R for a double. They offer patio-style table seating out side as well. It's a good place to chill but on Thurs through Sat nights it gets super busy. People hanging out in big groups and socializing, spilling out onto the sidewalk and streets. My first night in CWB, my buddy's brother got into a fight and it turned into a bit of a melee on the streets. I received a shot trying to separate one of his friends so that was my crazy "Welcome to CWB" moment.

Saw some hot, well dressed young girls in the 18-23 range but they were pretty ADD and not really down to chat. The men-women ratio was pretty poor though as I once counted being surrounded by 16 dudes on a Thurs night as I was ordering a beer. Good place to warm-up and drink but would recommend leaving after 11PM.

Lounge Batel: This place is badass. It's a two story mansion / house that they turned into a semi-exclusive casino with a bar / restaurant inside. They run live poker tournaments downstairs with professional dealers, some cash games upstairs. I didn't partake in any donkaments as I was hanging with friends here on a Sat afternoon / night for a special event. It's the type of place where you will see Lambo's, Range Rovers, Mercedes parked outside.

The chopp (draft beer) bar inside is cool with a pre-paid swipe card system so you can serve yourself. There's side cafe that serves sushi as well. Our DJ friend was playing and there was tonnes of talent here on a Saturday. Lots of mid to large groups but everybody seemed chill. Music is not too loud so you can spit some good game and have conversations. I saw a lot of well-dressed women and they're definitely mid-higher class. Think cover was 25 or 30 R.

+55 (cinco cinco): This is a very well-known and high end club in the city at the moment. One half is a dark / loud club that played electronica music with a decent amount of space roped off as "VIP" / table area. Think muscular / rich dudes hanging out with their dolled-up bottle rats. Not my scene. It's also very loud.

The other half of the venue is more of a lounge with sofas and stand-up tables. We got here pretty late in the night and it was start to empty out but for my style of Game this part probably has more potential. Could be a good date spot as well. Apparently on Sunday afternoons it's their popular Sertanejo night with drink specials. Hot girls like the shitty Brazilian "country music" so it attracts a good crowd and I was told. Didn't go to confirm in person though.

Cover is expensive - I paid 40 R and it was a discounted rate as we rolled in with a DJ friend. It's a fancy place to see and be seen. Lots of poorer / trashier / younger kids outside who can't / don't want to pay the cover just hang out drinking on the streets outside so you can just do gutter game if that's your style.

Santa Marta: Came here on a Friday night with a buddy, his girlfriend and his sister-in-law. I was told the live band / music really sucks here, but since I couldn't understand their lyrics, it wasn't too bad. It's a two-story bar / club with a stage for live music type set-up. Got a few flakey numbers but nothing really hooked here. Medium priced venue and was average.

Shed: Came here on a random Thurs night after running into some friends-of-friends at Shopping Hauer. Was just going to have a "low key night" but they insisted this was the best place in CWB on a Thurs night and wanted to show me the talent. Basically, it's a fancier, slightly more expensive and better version of Santa Marta. Would recommend.

WS Brazil: This place is awesome, but only because my experience of it was biased. It's a medium sized, higher class venue with a large stage for live samba pop and I was told they play a lot of classic Brazilian songs.

I was told the women here are "more promiscuous" and DTF. Came here on a Sat night with two friends who had sick connections. They knew all the managers and staff. For about 120 R's each, we basically got to go to our own perched VIP area with a bouncer, joined another gangster-looking dude who was rolling with a buddy and 8 doll-up women, and lots of bottles / energy drinks. Lots of hot women and decent 50-50 ratios overall in the venue which would be amazing in North America. I had two make-outs here that night but no pull. But just the talent and fun partying with friends made it worthwhile in my books. Would recommend.

Random Observations:

Despite the zero tolerance on drunk-driving here, people really don't give a shit. Guys I met drove from one club to another, while being drunk, or from a BBQ at their house to the supermarket to get more meat, while blasting their music rolling past cop cars. This is despite Uber being safe to use.

CWB is a decent city to live in long term. The cost of living is not as high as Sao Paulo or Rio. It's not full of tourists and gringos either. It's a good hub to explore Foz, Floripa, nearby Morretes and even to Porto Alegre. It's also relatively more organized, modern and safer than other cities. The girls here are a tough nut to crack for me and I would't recommend coming just to Game but if you happened to be here on exchange, for business or just travelling by, you can still have a good time and eat well. Like most places, a long term stay will pay more dividends.

RE: DATA SHEET: Curitiba Brasil (Warning High end and short, excluding day game)
That's very interesting stuff Actiontoknowledge

I'd give you another +1 for this.

More tidbits:
WS - Ive had friends that have pulled here, but I have yet to even get a make out here. Tough venue. Local Brazilian guys will do much better here.

I was invited to WS for a private party one time where I was guaranteed a pull...but I went to another party (ugh).

+55 - It used to be the premier house music venue in CWB depending on the night. Have pulled few times from here. Sunday nights have these Samba variety bands which are usually great. Bigode Groove I believe. If Sundays switched from fast paced Samba variety bands to Sertanejo, that is news to be. Speaking of Sundays....

Taj - I'd say Taj is the best house music place in Brazil when I left. Yeah Sundays at +55 are more crowded..but even well-connected local Curitbanos with money ain't pullin....get to Taj say 6-8PM on a Sunday night...gals are definitely more DTF..but your Portuguese better be on point.

Batel Mansion - Funny enough, I never got invited to an event here. Jealous you got to go in there.

Distrito 1340, Gards Roof Top Lounge, Cleriquot Time to Celebrate - These are new places that came into effect when I left the city. Never got to visit them.

Dating Patterns - Its funny you mentioned tall good looking dudes getting the gals...from my memory, these are dudes that typically pulled high quantities of 5s, 6s, and some 7s. It was always the unattractive goofy tall dudes (some short) with the hot 8-9 gf. The hottest chicks in Curitiba typically date a goofier dude who can't really get anything better..do they cheat on the side? Perhaps...and indeed yes.

It's definitely a city where gals seem to wear the pants in relationships...

If I were to go into further detail about my experiences in Curitiba, it'd be an updated data sheet in the private forum to protect my identity.

Hearing this report makes me miss the city...could head back as a result.

Just arrived in Curitiba today. It’s winter here. Almost all people I see here are white. lol. Definitely much different than the variety of girls I saw in São Paulo and even Goiana. The vibe here reminds me of Eastern Europe in fall or close to winter. I’ve read that it’s one of the harder places to crack in Brazil. I have online leads so far but would definitely try some day and night game. PM me if anyone’s around. Cheers
