Fall is finally here and you can definitely feel it here in Miami. The weather is cool and finally enjoyable. If you live in Miami, you understand what I mean. So this weekend if you’re looking for something to do check out the South Beach Seafood Festival.
The HESS WINES SOUTH BEACH SEAFOOD FESTIVAL HOSTED BY COCA-COLA celebrates South Florida’s celebrated seafood creations and kicks off Miami’s globally-recognized annual Stone Crab season every October. Thousands flock to 7th & Ocean Drive, Miami Beach at the entrance to #SobeSeafood on October 24th to experience the seasonal selections of Miami’s top chefs and restaurants during the all-day festival. The South Beach Seafood Festival also features live music, culinary and mixology demonstrations, a kids zone, health village, and VIP hospitality benefits. There is fun for all ages with countless interactive zones, retail villages, and a sports bar showing the day’s college football matchups right on the sand.
I’ve been selected by the South Florida’s Bloggers to cover and blog about The 2nd annual Chef Showdown on October 23rd, welcoming local executive chefs in head-to-head culinary battles featuring a variety of styles and cuisines.
