Bayfront Holiday Village — A Bustling Wonderland Filled with Brilliant Lights, Shopping, Food and Entertainment Awaits in Downtown Miami

Bayfront Holiday Village Brings Daily Christmas Tree Lights Shows, Waterfront Roller-Skating, Local Vendors, Nightly Music and Top Food and Drink Offerings

Downtown Miami’s iconic Bayfront Park will transform into the magical Bayfront Holiday Village offering free, family-friendly programming all season long. Guests of all ages will enjoy daily 50 ft. Christmas tree LED light shows, waterfront roller-skating by Bayskate, over 50 local vendors, festive music and al fresco food and drinks.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, locals and tourists alike will come for the weather, but stay for great shop-ping, entertainment and Miami’s version of a tropical winter wonderland.

“We know that New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles have pop-up holiday villages. We wanted to create a village where people would gather their loved ones and join in on some holiday cheer. Of course, we have something that the rest of the nation envies – our weather,” said Tony Albelo, event creator and CEO at SWARM.

Organizers want people to envision a quaint, picture-perfect, holiday outdoor venue filled with twinkling lights against Miami’s downtown skyline and waterfront Biscayne Bay. The picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue will be filled with twinkling lights and larger-than-life displays worthy of capturing the moment and posting it on Insta-gram.

“The only thing missing out of this Hallmark-perfect scene will be the frigid snow, but that’s why we invite our neighbors from the north to come here to enjoy Bayfront Holiday Village, Miami-style,” added Albelo.

Every night, a fully decorated, 50-foot state-of-the-art, animated Christmas Tree will feature hourly LED light shows sequenced to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy-winning producer A.T. Molina.

New York has The Rink at Rockefeller Center, but Miami’s answer to cold-weather ice skating is Bay Skate, where adults and children can boogie to the beat of freestyle, tropical, contemporary pop and more. In the Northeast, peo-ple are ice skating and sipping hot cocoa wearing parkas. In Miami, we roller skate and sip mojitos in shorts. The Shops will offer a collection of 60 artisans in a jovial setting, each offering unique gift ideas to check off the “nice” list! Foodies will delight their senses at Bayfront Bites, where they’ll find seasonal beverages, sweet treats and food ga-lore!

The adventurous will participate in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt as they navigate Bayfront Park using guidebooks with clues to solve this year’s puzzle. Even fur babies will have a place of their own to hang out with free treats at the Santa Paws Dog Park, and every Sunday they’ll have Puppy Brunch!

An estimated one in eight U.S. women is expected to develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. While these statistics are alarming, individuals and organizations across the nation continue to do their part to fund vital research seeking a cure. This October, Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale is teaming up with AutoNation, America’s largest automotive retailer, to raise awareness for breast cancer as part of a month-long charitable drive, marked by a new signature event, the Rosé Garden Party on Saturday, October 19, from 8 to 11 p.m. at The Galleria Fort Lauderdale location. Proceeds from the ticketed event, which will feature live entertainment, drink specials and raffles, plus sales from specific drinks all month long, will benefit the Dolphins Cancer Challenge.

Throughout the month of October, Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will donate $2 for every signature pink cocktail and $2 for every glass of Maison Belle Claire Rosé that is sold to the Dolphins Cancer Challenge. The Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC) was founded in 2010 by the Miami Dolphins organization as the signature initiative of the Foundation’s health area. The DCC’s mission is to improve people’s lives through financial support for innovative cancer research at South Florida’s only academic-based cancer center – Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of UHealth — the University of Miami Health System. Since its inception, the DCC has raised more than $27.5 million, donating 100 percent of participant-raised funds to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. AutoNation is a proud sponsor of the event.

This month-long effort coincides with AutoNation’s partnership with The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale. Starting October 1, two gigantic pink reindeer will be prominently displayed throughout the entire month on the exterior of the mall to signify National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A pink themed vehicle will be displayed with the reindeer. This partnership underscores AutoNation’s commitment to driving out cancer. Through its DRV PNK Intiative, the company has raised more than $20 million for cancer research and treatment, placing its iconic pink plates on every vehicle it sells and services from coast to coast.

The month-long fundraiser will be marked by the Rosé Garden Party, a festive soiree featuring signature sips and culinary treats, plus raffles for designer giveaways and spa packages from sought-after brands and premier experiences.

Admission for this ticketed event includes entrance, a glass of Rosé or a signature Pink drink and a raffle ticket. Tickets are available to be purchased online for $15 from September 2 through October 19 at www.rosegardenpartyftl.eventbrite.com. Tickets are also available for purchase at the door for $20. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $10 each. Fifty percent of proceeds from the pre-sold online tickets and 100% of proceeds from the raffle tickets will be donated to the Dolphins Cancer Challenge.

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

HIGHBALL’R Miami 2/23/19

HIGHBALL’R Miami
Saturday, 02/23/2019 – 12:00 pm –
Melinda's
2826A N Miami Ave,
Miami, Florida 33127
Website
Cost: Free

Wynwood mezcaleria Melinda’s announces today that it is partnering with other South Florida bars and Q, the Brooklyn-based maker of spectacular mixers, to host “HIGHBALL’R,” a celebration, open to the public, of the simple, yet incredibly elegant highball cocktail.

WHAT: HIGHBALL’R Miami

WHEN: Saturday, February 23, 12 noon

WHERE: Melinda’s (2826A N. Miami Ave.)

WHO: HIGHBALL’R Miami is open to the public

HOW (MUCH): Admission is free

A special HIGHBALL’R menu of highball cocktails will be available for one night only, with drinks from an all-star cast of South Florida bartenders including Gaston Gonzalez (Casa Florida), Diego Nave (Tacology), Emiliano Gonzalez (Casa Florida), Ricardo Astudillo (Ilegal Mezcal), Alejandro Noriega (Santa Teresa), and Marco Nava (Cantina la Veinte).

Esquire declares “The highball is making a comeback…They are the antidote to seven-ingredient mixology hijinks, a respectable respite from your martini habit, and the drink of the post-experienced drinker.”

So what is a highball? To say it’s a couple ounces of spirit (whiskey, gin, etc) poured into glass and topped with a haphazard squirt of club soda or tonic is to undervalue what differentiates a highball cocktail from the vodka-sodas we all drank in college.

A truly great highball is built from the glass, up. It starts with a sleek, slender highball glass a chilled at freezing temperatures. The glass is removed from the freezer and filled with “ice so clear that you can read fine print through it.” About two ounces of spirit are added. And then, holding the glass at an angle, the bartender pours slowly the chilled mixer of choice. This technique maximizes the mixer’s carbonation ensuring the drink is just as fizzy on the last sip as the first.

Esquire continues, “The attention to detail is palpable. There’s a bracing fizz and a steady undercurrent of whisky from first sip to last, with no watered-down sludge at the end; ye olde whisky soda, by comparison, tastes like a bad accident.

When asked ‘What’s in a highball and what makes it different?’ Masahiro Urushido of New York’s Katana Kitten replied, ‘Care and love. It’s all about how you make it.’

The National Hotel, the cinematic Art Deco treasure in the heart of South Beach, is partnering with Neighbors 4 Neighbors, a nationally recognized nonprofit and partner of local broadcast station CBS4, to host Chefs 4 Neighbors, a culinary benefit event to raise funds to support individuals and families with immediate needs. Proceeds from the event will go towards Neighbors 4 Neighbors’ Family Fund and victims of Hurricane Michael through a partnership with Farm Share. The Family Fund program offers financial assistance to otherwise self-sufficient individuals who have an immediate need or emergency, preventing them from entering the cycle of poverty. The Family Fund will purchase supermarket gift cards for families experiencing food insecurity.

“During hard times, people economize by going hungry, and with 37% of Miami-Dade households either in poverty or making ends meet, it is important we host events like these to support those in need in our community, especially true after a natural disaster such as Hurricane Michael,” said Yaser Mohamad, General Manager, National Hotel. “By supporting Neighbors 4 Neighbors’ Family Fund, we are helping restore the financial self-sufficiency of individuals who are willing to work but are temporarily unable to do so or are going through unexpected hardships.”

These conversations are about creating a space for you to link up with friends, old and new, who feel the same way (and maybe some who don’t). They’re about discovering how each of us can join the thousands of people making Miami-Dade County a better place to live for everyone.”

We’ll be hosting four discussions surrounding local pressing issues:

We’re Drowning!: Sea-Level Rise and Sustainability
Some Waste, While Some Want: Food Justice Presented with Hungry Harvest
Cranes and Planes: Gentrification and Preserving Community
No Waze Around It: Housing, Money, and Traffic

MegaRumba to Support Those in Need of Food and Medicine in Venezuela

SWARM and iHeart’s TU 94.9 have once again partnered to bring MegaRumba to Wynwood. This year, they will be raising funds in support of the Cuatro Por Venezuela Foundation, which has been fighting hunger, illness, and poverty in Venezuela since 2016. Taking place on the 20th of July, this festival of independence for all Hispanic cultures welcomes everyone to join in this single collective celebration, being a source of mutual pride and unity, and allowing everyone to enjoy a variety of Latin music, flavors, dancing, arts and crafts.

For the first time ever in the U.S., Danny Ocean will perform “Me Rehuso” at MegaRumba. Also performing live is Sofia Reyes, winner of an MTV Millennial, Latin Grammy and iHeart Media Award, as well as Grammy and Latin Grammy nominated bilingual Latin band, Locos Por Juana. Venezuelan singer/actor Victor Drijo and Nicole Favre will also join iHeart radio’s ever-popular DJ’s on center stage. In addition, there will be food trucks, arts & craft vendors, and several fully stocked bars, offering everything from the best of Bud Light and mixed drinks to specialty flavored mojitos by Cruzan.

The festival will run from 7PM to 3AM and it will continue to be FREE to enjoy. With the purchase of a $10 donation ticket, people can help Venezuela, but also enjoy a free Bud Light and shot from the giant Aguardiente Ice Luge ($19 value). Cuatro Por Venezuela Foundation will receive 100% of that ticket, so they may continue to provide educational, medical, and nutritional aid to Venezuelans in need. “Venezuela is under a profound humanitarian crisis, and we want to do something about it. One of the great things about Miami is our ethnic unity and getting to witness the neighborly love as the melting pot of Latin cultures come together in times of need. We are eager to help in this time of desperation in Venezuela and are excited to contribute towards uniting others in helping as well,” says Tony Albelo, SWARM CEO. South Florida has the largest concentration of Venezuelans in the United States, and SWARM is hoping to make a positive impact towards getting Venezuela some much needed help.

On June 30, Schnebly Redlands Winery will release the Lychee fruits of their labor in a most entertaining way during their Lychee Summer Celebration (LSC), partnering for the first time with the South Dade Chamber of Commerce and the American Cancer Society. The family friendly event has been a source of pride to the area, with South Florida being the only place in the Continental United States where the Lychee fruit is grown. The celebration will begin at 2pm, when the Farmer’s Market opens with 50 vendors and six food trucks. At the Grand Tiki Culinary Lounge, guests will expand their food knowledge and watch Cooking Demos on how to incorporate lychee, local and organic foods in the kitchen. A family Mud Run, an awards ceremony, and live music will round out the celebration only to culminate with a patriotic fireworks display.

“This year’s Lychee harvest is the largest crop we’ve seen in years, not only did the trees survive Hurricane Irma, but the crop was actually improved by the stress of Irma; it’s a testament to the strength of the South Florida community and its agricultural roots,” says Peter Schnebly, Founder of Schnebly Winery. During the Summer Celebration, the Winery will be offering three Lychee wines, and three limited special release Lychee beers from Miami Brewing Company. Several South Florida restaurants and food trucks will offer their culinary take on the Lychee fruit by way of creative recipes, such as Lychee Seafood Ceviche and Lychee Martini Ice Cream. The possibilities are endless, and Schnebly can’t wait to see their partners get creative with this year’s harvest at the Culinary Grand Tiki Lounge featuring StartUP FIU Food Mentors such as Half Moon Empanadas, Pro Kitchen Hub, My Ceviche, and Lulu’s Ice Cream, to name a few.

While guests enjoy the different variations of Lychee, they can also browse 200+ classic/modern Chevrolet Corvettes, custom cars, Jeeps, 4x4s and other classics throughout the day. The Lychee Summer Celebration Meet Up will be hosted by Corvettes & Coffee and Cecil’s Jeep Fam. Guests can also explore over 40+ artisan and craft vendors in the Artist Colony as they sculpt, sew and sand down hand-made goods. In addition, Live Painting Sessions will showcase some of the area’s best muralists using 40 ft. long shipping containers as their canvas.

At 5pm, the first Schnebly Family Mud Run will kick off, benefitting the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research. Participating runners will be given a glow necklace to display the Cancer they’ll be running for, while conquering an “all new” course compete with obstacles. While the five-kilometer course will honor the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners during an official ceremony before the fireworks, every runner will receive a medal to commemorate their run. All proceeds from the run will go to the American Cancer Society, and anyone who buys a ticket for the run will get free admission to the Lychee Summer Celebration; family members get special pricing on LSC tickets with Runner Registration.
