Happy Tuesday guys! I feel like this post has been in the works for months now, and today I finally get to share it with you. Last night I was lucky enough to attend the 2017 Citi Taste of Tennis at the amazing W Miami. It was quite the night! Between meeting one of my favorite Miami Chefs, Michelle Bernstein to watching Venus Williams laugh and dance above the crowd, I really don’t even know where to start.
This event while all about tennis, also brings in so many other awesome aspects of Miami. After arriving at the hotel and strategically avoiding the step and repeat (you know me guys, don’t be surprised) we found our way up to the 50th floor where we were greeted with tables upon tables of some of the most amazing food from a selection of Miami’s top restaurants including Byblos, DB Modern, Sarsaparilla Club, BLT Prime and so many more. From an incredible tuna tartar bite at the Sugarcane table to Braised Pork with Chef Michelle, all of the classics of our city were covered. Checkout some of the snaps below!
In addition to the all the amazing food food, we were able to mingle with some of the worlds most famous Tennis stars including Genie Bouchard, Feliciano Lopez (serving tacos above), Yanina Wickmayer and the Bryan Brothers. We got to learn about how they have partners with Wellness in the Schools to encourage healthy eating, environmental awareness and fitness in public schools. This aspect of the whole event was really unique and a huge benefit to attending.
I would like to thank the entire Taste of Tennis group, all their amazing sponsors and event partners and the Foodie Tribe for gifting me with such an awesome night! I am already looking forward to next years event.
