Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend
Sunday's got a double whammy this weekend so you'll have to choose wisely (though, in all honesty, it's a win-win for everyone).
Miami's favorite food guru Norman Van Aken is throwing on his Superchef cape this Sunday and hosting a kick-butt battle for the cure called Pleasures of the Palate. Hungry Miamians can sit at the uber-fancy La Gorce Country Club, nosh on Van Akens delectable bites, and all the while help raise awareness for diabetes. Expect an auction for exotic trips abroad and rare bottles of vino. Tickets cost $250 a pop, but keep in mind that includes wine, dinner, and a clean conscience.
But hey, not all of us are made of $250 -- and that's cool, too. Say hi to Buddy. He's the boss. As in the Cake Boss. Buddy Valastro, host of TLC's most lovable baking show, will be at The Fillmore in Miami Beach. Expect lots of audience participation, an intimate Q&A, and his usual New Jersey sass. Tickets for this Sunday evening soiree run from $38.50 - $87.50.
