Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest dates for restaurants in São Paulo. It loses only to Mother’s Day, but it comes to be the first on the list among establishments that only work at night.

This is the case of the network Era uma Vez um Chalezinho. Specializing in fondues, the restaurant is popular on June 12th, especially when the date coincides with a cold night.
