Empowering the next generation of young entrepreneurs in South Florida, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), a leading non-profit organization that teaches at-risk young people to think like entrepreneurs and enables them to find their own path to success, will host the annual Ignite Entrepreneurship Launch Benefit on May 2nd, at the Palm Court in the Miami Design District, to kick off the Ignite Entrepreneurship series of events presented in conjunction with eMerge Americas, a five-day technology conference in Miami that connects the best and brightest from the startup and funding ecosystems. All proceeds will support more than 3,500 young entrepreneurs throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

The event will gather more than 300 local entrepreneurs and business leaders as well as eMerge Americas attendees to celebrate and support South Florida’s young entrepreneurs.

NFTE’s event will feature a Spirited Startup cocktail reception allowing guests to sample the best of the region’s craft spirits, beers, wines and cocktails. They will also have the opportunity to bid on a chance to spend time with the region’s top entrepreneurs, including Venus Williams and Adrienne Bosh, through the unique Hour with an Entrepreneur Auction.

NFTE will also feature five student businesses that have qualified to compete in the May 4th Youth BizPlan Challenge, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at eMerge Americas. These finalists will be chosen at a semifinal competition taking place 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on April 22nd, at Miami Dade College’s Idea Center at the Wolfson Campus.

Eats & Beats 2015

Eats N Beats 2015 30

After an unplanned tour of Little Haiti in Miami last night, my wife and I gave in to technology and plugged in the address of The Moore Building in Miami’s Design District into the phone. After all, we didn’t want to be late to the second annual Eats & Beats culinary and musical event taking place from 7:30 until midnight!

Whew! Just made it on time, and someone was nice enough to leave a parking space right in front of the building for us. We met the organizers on the way in and then got started tasting some great dishes, sampling some terrific spirits and cocktails, and being entertained with some great music and ambiance.

The pink lights flashing on the very unique architecture of The Moore Building made me feel like I was back at a club in Paris I visited a few times in the 90’s. Eats & Beats took place on all 4 floors, which each have a 360 degree balcony overlooking the center of the building. Pretty cool!

Eats N Beats 2015 8

We met some very nice people, both vendors and other guests alike. If I were forced to pick some favorites, I’d have to choose Chef Adrianne Calvo (who also made a spectacular dessert at the Five Cubed event a few days ago), the food from Segundo Muelle Peruvian Restaurant, Red The Steakhouse, Brother Jimmy’s, and Havana 1957. Oh, and the cupcakes from Ana Paz Cakes and Slice of Art!

And on the spirits side of things, I loved the Zafra rum, both on the rocks and as a cocktail. Not to be outdone were the terrific mojitos that the folks from Nikki Beach were making. Not only did both of those vendors make a great tasting drink, but they went all out with their presentation and overall experience.

Eats N Beats 2015 35

IT Espresso Lounge also made a very nice prosecco based drink, quite refreshing. And as the “beer guy,” I have to give a shout out to the only beer vendor there–Modelo! I personally would have like to have seen a few more strong brands, especially considering the emergence of craft beer on the Miami scene. But hey, that’s probably just me.

All the vendors were friendly, knowledgeable, and wanted to share their products with you. And to the army of people that made the event happen, congratulations! Can’t wait for Eats & Beats 2016!

Eats N Beats, the hugely successful food and spirits event is back again during Miami Food & Wine Week! The first annual Eats N Beats welcomed over 3,500 foodies who were looking to experience an event that was equal parts food, spirits, and music with just the right amount of Miami flare!

Eats N Beats was created as a way to bring Miami Food & Wine week back to the South Floridian. Dubbed the “by locals for locals” event by numerous publications, Eats N Beats welcomed scores of event guests who sampled over 40 of Miami’s best eateries and dozens of wine and spirits. Food coupled with amazing music by some of Miami’s best bands and DJ talents along with nightlife inspired production made this event, uniquely Miami.

Eats N Beats also featured a dessert lounge and a stable of top shelf liquors, beer, and wine.

Eats N Beats is a perfect showcase of local culinary artistry paired with premium wines and spirits, minus the velvet rope. Comprised of some of the most renowned restaurants in South Florida, to some of the most mouthwatering dessert artists, Eats N Beats will satisfy the local food enthusiast as well as the sophisticated “foodie” expecting to delight in some of the best dishes and libations our city has to offer. Not to worry, keeping true to our City known for beauty and some flash, the event will touch on all of the senses.

The showcase will attract those looking for an alternative type of food event, one that brings the best of three worlds: food, music and wines/spirits together seamlessly.

The Revivalists

The septet has been playing nonstop since 2007, crafting a genre-hopping sound that rounds out traditional rock instrumentation with horns and pedal steel guitar and mixes the divergent backgrounds of its individual members with the humid, funky undercurrents of the band’s New Orleans home. The result is like English spoken with an exotic accent: familiar, yet difficult to pin down.

The California Honeydrops

The California Honeydrops don’t just play music—they throw parties. Drawing on diverse musical influences from Bay Area R&B, funk, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second-line, the Honeydrops bring vibrant energy and infectious dance-party vibes to their live shows. They’ve taken the party all over the world: on their nine European tours, to featured slots at such premiere festivals as Monterey Jazz, High Sierra, and Outside Lands, and performances in 2013 supporting B.B. King, Dr. John, Buddy Guy, and Allen Toussaint. Whether in those high-profile performances or in more intimate venues where the band itself can leave the stage and get down on the dance floor, the California Honeydrops’ shared vision and purpose remain: to make the audience dance and sing.

JUke

Hailing from Miami, JUke is a new breed of Post-blues and the brainchild of singer/songwriter/harmonica whiz, Eric Garcia, who was dissatisfied with most dated, non-threatening traditional blues. Eric felt the need to bring the angst and power back into the type of music that seemed to lose some of it’s relevance and impact.

Teaming up with guitar phenom and singer, Evan Lamb, was the catapult that made JUke go and realize Eric’s vision.

The addition of powerhouse drummer, Brian Lange, and the endless grooves from bassist, Taylor Byrd, have completed the unique hybrid that has become JUke.

Nipsey Hussle

You already know what it is. From the way he greets you, to the words that he speaks. The uniform he wears is bold, aggressive and absolutely intimidating. He’s authentic – the offspring of the West Coast’s most celebrated talent – yet and still a novelty all his own. In an industry that’s fallen victim to bubble gum lyrics and erroneous dance fads to match, he’s the spokesperson the block wants for. He’s the sociopolitical outrage of Ice Cube and N.W.A. He’s Snoop Dogg before you knew his name and Ice T after an unexpected knock at 6 o’clock in the morning. He’s the very definition of Slauson & Crenshaw – a self-inspired movement and a name you can trust. He is Nipsey Hussle.

The rise of instant information and digital first has left journalism in a state of change. Has self-preservation led to innovation? At our January meet-up, Social Media Club South Florida teams up with PRSA Miami to present an expert panel to discuss the future of journalism. How technology and instantaneous information are reshaping news – not only how it’s discovered and consumed, but also how it’s reported and distributed.

Our esteemed panel will address key issues such as:
• Mobile and media
• Speed vs accuracy
• The new journalist? Part investigator / writer, part sales person
• How integral is SEO
• Independent bloggers and freelancers vs traditional reporters
• The role of citizen journalism
• The profitability forecast

The purpose of SMCSF is to promote media literacy, promote standard technologies, encourage ethical behavior and share best practices. We bring together journalists, publishers, communications professionals, artists, amateur media creators, citizen journalists, teachers, students, tool makers, and other interested collaborators for open sharing of knowledge and opinions.

Next stop was the Design District for Miami Magazine Celebrate Art Week Miami with LEBO. Stopped in for the Spinello opening of The Magic of Kris Knight. Next on the list was something completely different with the Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition to Celebrate Miami Marine Stadium, an international gathering of some of the most amazing street artists.
