The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne hosts "Mixologist Mix Off" at Dune Oceanfront Burger Lounge

Sazoneros! Don't let the rainy weather keep you indoors. On Sunday, May 20th, I had the pleasure of enjoying a sunny afternoon at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne where Brett Graff   (pictured to the left on the right hand side), Editor of Social Key Biscayne, hosted a special "Mixologist Mix Off." Guests arrived at Dune Oceanfront Burger Lounge to witness an intense face-off between four of the resort's mixologists who endured a one-on-one challenge to see who would create the most popular cocktail among the crowd. After tasting delicious samples from all of the mixologists, Frank Smith of Cantina Beach , received the most votes for his signature cocktail and he was awarded with a $150 gift card! Check out my pictures from the event below and yes, the view from the Ritz is stunning and the cocktails were definitely fun to taste.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens hosts their 15th Annual "Evening Under the Stars" Party

Sazoneros ! You all know by now that I love writing about fabulous  soirées in town. On Friday, May 11th, I attended the 15th Annual "Evening Under the Stars" event at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens . This ultra chic event was hosted by The Vizcayans who strive to preserve Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, a coveted national historic landmark , through their annual events, advocacy and support. During the evening, guests enjoyed Indian and Italian cuisine provided by Thierry's Catering along with tasty cocktails, wine and champagne. The party also featured live music by the Leo Casino Band and a special set by DJ Crunchtime . If you've followed my blog for the past few years, you'll notice that this is an event I never miss! The romantic ambiance of Vizcaya is memorizing and I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people during the course of the night!
