Em Chamas is destination for Foodie Fridays lunch outing for 50 Plus on Nov. 18
POSTED: 10/19/2016
Lunch at Em Chamas restaurant is the next destination for the Foodie Fridays program being presented this fall and early winter by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

This program lets participants try a new restaurant with a fun and active group of friends for lunch or dinner on one Friday each month. Participants meet at Antioch Park. Transportation to and from the restaurant is provided, and participants are responsible for the cost of food and drinks on their own. Diners can come to one outing or as many as they’d like planned through December. Please call (913) 826-3160 for more information or to register.

To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under travel. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “social outing.”

Em Chamas offers traditional Churrascaria (Brazillian grill) from the pampas region of southern Brazil. This involves various cuts of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken all skewered and slow roasted over a wood-fired grill.

The outing to Em Chamas will take place beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 18. The cost for one two-and-one-half-hour outing with transportation is $10 per person. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online at, click on the green “Register for Activities” button and complete a barcode search for 35570.

The final restaurant destination of this season will be Cooper's Hawk for dinner on Dec. 16 (barcode 35571).

While JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus program are invited to call the 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-3030 for space availability.

Printed copies of JCPRD’s Activities catalog are available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
