Miami’s culinary scene is nothing if not creative. And at Taste of the Garden, you can stuff yourself silly with creatively conceived gourmet goodies concocted by local chefs — all within the grassy green gorgeousness of Miami Beach Botanical Garden (2000 Convention Center Dr., Miami Beach).
Plan to nosh on nibbles, sip an assortment of libations, and mix and mingle with several hundred other well-heeled attendees. Eats and drinks will include grilled shrimp with lime aioli from Fish Fish, coconut ceviche from the Tides, grilled octopus with pressed watermelon salad from Florida Cookery, tequila by Herradura, and brews by New Belgium Beer.
There’ll also be a silent auction, so you can bid on that glittery jewelry, fine leather handbag, or luxury hotel stay you’ve been wishing for. Tunes and entertainment are on the agenda too, so you can drop it like it’s hot while the trees play back-up dancer with some rhythmic swaying. That’s where your creative genius comes into play.
