South Jersey Epicurean | Feb 5, 2003 05:47 AM

The Dangerous Dining Club Presents..........

When: Saturday, MARCH 1, 2003

Where: Seabra’s Armory
200 Front Street
Perth Amboy, NJ
Phone: 732-826-6000

What are we gonna eat?

We are having Brazilian/Portuguese cuisine….Rodizio!!
What the heck is that?

Rodizio is a rotation of the freshest herbed-spiced, meats grilled on a skewer over an open flame and served right on your plate by your server from skewer-like swords. The servers come to you with these swords and slice your selections from the sword to your plate. All you can eat of the following meat selections:

Filet mignon
Roast Pork Loin
Turkey-wrapped bacon
short ribs
Spare ribs
baby sirloin beef
Shish kebob
Other chef surprises

If that isn’t enough, it all comes with unlimited salad bar (This could be big in terms of selections…); Brazilian black beans, collard greens in garlic, fried bananas, fried onions, white rice, french fries (how’d that get in there?), onion vinaigrette, all you can drink domestic beer, wine, soft drinks, and homemade sangria, tax and tip for a measly $25 a person!!! What a deal! (They may be throwing in dessert, but I’m not sure..who cares?! We’ll be stuffed before that!)

What do I need to know from you?

You need to e-mail your reply to me at with the following information:

1) The names in your party
2) If you want to drive some people which YOU will arrange with them, not me!! I’ll just try to put you in e-mail contact with those people.
3) If you are going to meet at the car caravan point at Franklin Mills Mall at NOON sharp which Rich Pawlak ( will lead…...(Information to follow

You NEED to communicate everything to me by Tuesday, February 25!! Please no later!!

Also, the sooner you RSVP, the better because I’ll be out-of-town from 2/19/-2/24 so it’s best to make arrangements before that period for me.

You are NOT required to car caravan! Rich is just a nice guy!! You can go yourself. From the directions above, ignore the Franklin Mills part of the directions and get on the NJ Turnpike heading NORTH to Exit 10. Follow the above directions from there!!

Things to keep in mind. Seabra’s has its own parking lot. The building is brick and looks like a factory from the outside with lots of windows (not an ugly one). Seabra’s is on the WATER!! We will be dining upstairs in our own room which has windows so we can see the water. If you get lost in Perth Amboy, ask for directions to head for the WATER. You’ll find it! We will be capping the event at 60 people!!

We are dining from 2-6PM to give everyone time to get enough to eat and for our servers to get to everyone. We have to be out by 6PM. Don’t plan on showing up at 4PM because you think 2 hours is enough time. You might be disappointed!! So plan on being there by 2PM sharp so you get what you want!!

If you have a question or change in your information, you could call me at 609-265-1809, but I prefer e-mail because my machine is not clear all of the time. So spell things out and speak your phone number clearly. Remember to e-mail me with your reservation and info. Contact Rich if you want to meet at the car caravan spot and drive up with him.

Rich Pawlak’s contact information:

I think that’s enough!!!

See you there…Don’t forget to meet the deadlines for reservations!!
