Algonquin Dinner Club is a group of young professionals in Miami that get together for dinner at a new restaurant each week. The original Algonquin Roundtable consisted of some of New York’s greatest literary lights of the post-W.W. I era: Writer Dorothy Parker and Robert Benchley; The New Yorker founder Harold Ross; columnists Franklin Pierce Adams and Heywood Broun, and Broun’s wife Ruth Hale; critic Alexander Woollcott; comedian Harpo Marx; and playwrights George S. Kaufman, Marc Connelly, Edna Ferber and Robert Sherwood. The Melissa Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and prevention of violence through education, community service, research support and consultation. Our mission is to prevent violence and promote safer communities through education and application of research-based knowledge.

Select Vodka is distilled six times, and is the fastest growing imported vodka (750 ML) in liquor stores and the brand currently has more than 1,100 accounts in Florida.
