InterContinental Miami Goes Blue for Autism Awareness

In recognition and celebration of Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month, InterContinental Miami’s interior has been given a blue motif for the month of April to show its support of the Arts for Autism Foundation, a local organization that provides free spectrum dance therapy to children with autism to encourage self-expression. In honor of the symbolic blue that represents Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month, the hotel restaurant Toro Toro is also doing its part, featuring a specialty dessert and cocktail. Diners can opt for the "Blue Roar," a combination of vodka, blue Curacao, limoncello, simple syrup, and lime juice ($18), or the "La Bomba," a blue chocolate half-sphere filled with cream cheese mousse, dulce de leche, strawberry ice cream, fresh berries, cookie crumbles and vanilla and berry sauce ($32). A portion of proceeds from the month’s sales will benefit the Arts for Autism Foundation. InterContinental Miami,100 Chopin Plz., Miami; 305-577-1000; icmiamihotel.com.
