Every six to eight weeks I get a coveted email or text from my fabulous friends Hoby and Christina inviting me to one of their dinner parties. They both love food, champagne and entertaining. They recently left a sweet little house right on the water in Miami Beach for a penthouse apartment right downtown. The enormous loft apartment comes with two extremely large terraces overlooking the city.
There is a rotunda on the top of the apartment that is like a two story cylinder made of bricks..they set up dinner in there. You have to climb up a scary ladder to get there, so serving an entire meal was quite a feat.
They served drinks in Hoby's fancy silver monogrammed cups...love these.
My favorite dessert..chocolate chip cookie cups with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious.
The next morning, I ventured to Fairchild Tropical Garden to see Christina do her cooking demonstration in the children's area. It was so cute. She is starting a new business and has become "Tina the Dining Diva".
She did a great job..you can check out Christina's blog here.
Next up..Polo on South Beach. It was really amazing. The people watching was super fun and the horses right on the beach were unbelievable.
We ended the afternoon with a late lunch at Smith & Wollensky right on the water watching the cruise ships go by. What a fantastic place. Busy but fun weekend!
