Attention Miamiâ€™s Mademoiselles and Monsieurs! Get ready to throw on your bathing suits, drink some bubbly and have a â€˜ballâ€™ this Labor Day weekend at Trump International Beach Resortâ€™s oceanfront Bella Beach restaurant for its very first Veuve Clicquot PÃ©tanque Tournament. Petanque â€“ which is pronounced "pay-tonk" and seemingly goes well with a glass of chilled champagne â€“ is the French variation of Italyâ€™s Bocce and involves rolling or tossing several hollow steel balls as close as possible to a small wooden target ball, called "cochonnet.â€
Not out to prove yourself a champion? Bella Beach, where Floridaâ€™s Riviera meets St. Tropez, offers the ideal oceanfront oasis for sipping premium champagne and dining alfresco on exquisite Mediterranean-styled bites. With the sea and sun captivating their senses, guests are invited to tan naturally while soaking up South Floridaâ€™s unparalleled sunshine.
The Petanque teams who â€˜trumpâ€™ the rest will be awarded with the following prizes:
Â· 1st place Grand Prize winner will receive a two-night stay at Trump International Beach Resort and a Veuve Clicquot amenity
Â· 2nd place winner will receive a spa treatment for two at the Resortâ€™s award-winning Aquanox Spa and a gift from Veuve Clicquot
Â· 3rd place team will receive dinner for two at Bella Beach and a gift from Veuve Clicquot
Participants must register in teams of two and participation is free. To sign up for the tournament contact [email protected] or 305-673-3873. Bella Beach will also be hosting practice sessions at 2:30 p.m. each Sunday in August leading up to the tournament.
