Buenos Dias BrickGals! I bet you all have been anxiously awaiting word from moi after my long travel hiatus, so voila cet ici!
Big things are happening this week in the hood from the opening of Lucky Clover Irish Pub and Puerto Madero Fish and Steak House to the Taste of Brickell Pre-Party. Obs b/c I’m a fat ass my life centers around food, so check back in over the next few days for reviews on Lucky Clover and PM.
Now on to deets RE: the Taste of Brickell Pre-Party, or, what I like to call, a party explosion in la boca.
Last year’s Taste of Brickell pretty much rocked my world. From my apt terrace, I was able to observe quite a good number of peeps heading into the abandoned lot just south of The Mark, so when I hit up a bud who was down to check it out, bam I was in. We rolled up to the fest, grabbed some adult beverages and then set out on a culinary tour of Brickell. I hit up some friends at the Fado booth, grabbed some amazing Boeuf Bourguignon from Le Boudoir, downed some Yellowfin Tuna Ceviche courtesy of Oceanaire and fell in love with the Serrano Ham Croquettes at Crazy About You. Honestly, can’t tell you what my friend ate, I was more worried about my tummy’s quest for all that is good. I’m sure it was bomb, so, continuing…
My bud BrickGal Whitney has been raving about the ideas she’s heard regarding the second annual Taste of Brickell, coming March 24 & 25th of 2012, so I was overly pumped to hear about the Pre-Party going on this Thursday at Mary Brickell Village. Not only will you be treated to 2 comp drinks (c/o Blue Martini) and wine and champagne tastings from Cavas, but you’ll also be able to taste foodie delights from some Brickell fav’s including Fado, PF Changs and Oceanaire as well as newbies to the hood such as Taverna Opa, Doraku and Toscana Divino. Fashion Show, live music, goodie bags and more are on tap to round out the soiree.
Tickets are $50 in advance, $75 at the door. Party goes from 6-10 pm. Attendance? Le Duh.
