As locals, our greatest honor and responsibility is to show outsiders that Miami is more than meets the eye. We want them to also appreciate our city's non-nightlife assets, like a thriving population of leaders and innovators and a burgeoning sense of community. These concepts are difficult to convey within our day-to-day because they manifest themselves in small, seemingly insignificant moments. However, large events such as this past weekend's The PopUp Dinner Miami, organized by Handmade Events and presented by Acura, help to illustrate them more concretely.
The all-white outdoor dining event, which was the first of its kind to take place in our beautiful city, brought the Miami community together under a common theme and purpose: to indulge in music, food, and wine. By its very nature, it created a sense of unity, of community that was reinforced with memorable moments like the synchronized lighting of sparklers.
Whether you are a Miami local or visitor, we hope that our latest article for Société Perrier helps you see what we see in Miami - the depth and beauty beyond the 99-cent postcard image.
