Vida Lexus Presenta Vino Fino Con Sabor Latino Join Celebrity Chefs Michelle Bernstein and Douglas Rodriguez for a Special Night of Food, Music and Wine
Thursday, August 19, 2010 8:00pm – 11:00pm
Building 4141 4141 NE 2nd Ave. Miami, FL 33137

Lexus returns to Miami for another in a series of events created to bring influentials from Miami’s Hispanic community together to celebrate innovation and inspiration. This event, aptly named “Vino Fino con Sabor Latino,” will be centered around great food & fine wine as the evening will feature culinary demonstrations from two of the area’s epicurean masters, Chef Michelle Bernstein & Chef Douglas Rodriguez. Guests will also experience great music by renowned artist Liset Alea, the Cuban born singer songwriter whose infectious blend of pop with a dash of Cuban soul is sure to complement the bright and vibrant theme of the evening.

Each chef, while being philanthropists and activists both in and out of the kitchen, will give special attention to two charity organizations whose goals are to empower today’s youth across cultures, Common Threads and Success for Kids, Inc. (SFK).

As a long time supporter of Common Threads, Chef Bernstein believes that through hands-on cooking classes she and Common Thread can help prevent childhood obesity and reverse the trend of generations of non-cookers, while celebrating our cultural differences and the things people all over the world have in common.

Through SFK, an international non-profit organization, Chef Rodriguez demonstrates his dedication to empowering at-risk children and adolescents to become resilient, productive citizens by delivering innovative research-based programs that enhance four personal strengths.

Located in the heart of Miami’s Design District, the event will be held at Building 4141, a two-story development that mixes industrial rawness with polished grandeur.
