Tonight the streets of downtown Coral Gables will be hopping with coffee-lovers celebrating the first ever Starbucks Latin-American Coffee Festival. The green-awninged behemoth is rolling out new Latin-inspired flavors of their highly addictive Frappuccinos, lattes and coffees, and they want lil ol you to help celebrate with coffee and caffeinated activities.
Youll be able to sample Starbuckss new drinks and goodies in pavilions stretching from Ponce De Leon Boulevard to Andalusia Avenue, while the little ones construct coffee-inspired arts and crafts in a tent sponsored by the Museum of Contemporary Art. After youve pumped just enough foamy milk into your body, youll be treated to salsa, merengue, tango, and samba classes. Using your best caffeine-induced power walk, head over to the main stage, where Latin Grammy-nominated recording artist CéU and other musicians will delight your already-heightened senses. Home base for the festival is the Starbucks at 200 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables.
Tue., April 3, 4-8 p.m.
