There are Stir events happening every night all over the country, and we wanted to share with you a few of our favorites each week. This week’s recap features an event within an event at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival in glamorous Miami, Florida planned by our Southeast Regional Coordinator, Brittany. Stir hosted a singles event within the larger festivities and members had a chance to escape the heat while sampling 6 different wine and food pairings. After the wine tasting, members headed out to a private courtyard where they could mix and mingle with others in a casual environment!
What: A singles-only food and wine pairing event and happy hour within the larger South Beach Food and Wine Festival located in Miami, Florida
Who: ~100 Match.com singles from the South Florida vicinity
What Went Down
The event started with members meeting in the ballroom of The Shelbourne Hotel. The room was set up with tables all set with 6 different types of wine and 6 different food items. The tasting class was sponsored by Pubbelly, a chain of famous Miami restaurants, where the owners and chefs of several restaurants were there to answer any questions. Then after the “class” members mixed and mingled in the ballroom for a bit, before they were ushered outside to a private space in the back of Lucy’s Cantina Royale for a casual happy hour under the sun!
Favorite Observation from the Night
Many people commented on how much they loved the food, and some people said they even were going to stop by later that night because they thought it was so good. There were also a few love connections, and people leaving with each other. People seemed to enjoy the tastings, and enjoyed being able to mix and mingle with each other after the event!
