The PopUp Dinner Miami presented by Acura welcomed their inaugural event to Miami for the first time and SobeSavvy.com was there to capture the festivities!

The white themed picnic  took place in an exciting secret location and featured a special appearance by DJ Zen Freeman, courtesy of Acura. Whole Foods Market® , which has a new store opening downtown at 299 SE 3rd Ave, Miami, joined the pop up dinner experience as an official purveyor.

The PopUp Dinner Miami benefiting Pérez Art Museum Miami, PAMM, is an elegant, mass “pop up” picnic that encourages guests to be spontaneous and creative with their attire, culinary choices, and table design. This evening of revelry under the stars draws a crowd of thousands who are instructed to come dressed in chic white as they execute their own lavish table decorations and bring inspired cuisine and beverages – all which reflect a love for dining in style with friends in Miami. The exact location was disclosed to ticket holders via email just two hours before the event on November 8th.

So we dressed in all white and headed out on a beautiful, warm Miami night to  Virginia Key. A empty grass field was transformed into a otherworldly white paradise. Tikki torches illuminated the area. Hundreds of Miamians were dressed in mandatory white. Some formal. Some casual. All beautiful. My hubby and I settled into our seats for this unique experience. We were not disappointed. People brought all sorts of goodies for this very special nighttime uber picnic. We sampled various dishes and libations. Sharing amongst strangers is one of the main points of this event. The full moon was aglow and so were the guests. Sponsor Acura had a neat photo booth set up inside one of their vehicles. Entertainment was an awesome R&B singer and an exciting DJ. The dance floor became crowded as the evening went on. Chinese lanterns were released for good luck. It was a great evening to be alive. In white.

#SobeSavvy Recaps VIP Test Drive #Event for #AcuraRLX #ACURARLXHYBRID #Sponsored at @Seasons52 #CoralGables @Acura_Insider

This Monday I was invited to an Acura exclusive VIP experience at Seasons 52 Restaurant in Coral Gables to test drive their all new 2014 Acura RLX Hybrid. This event was part of Acura’s ‘Driven by Passion’ National Tour, a ride and drive series that seeks to introduce local influencers to popular established local eateries, arts & festivals, and local charities.

Acura, a proud sponsor of the Spring Garden Festival at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, which took place in Miami on April 12&13, as well as being a strong supporter of Global Bridges (a worldwide science-based initiative to help healthcare providers unite to treat tobacco dependence while advocating for effective tobacco control policies). Funds raised at these local events will be donated to Global Bridges’ local chapter.

I enjoyed complimentary cocktails and delicious appetizers after my test drive of this amazing vehicle. The car is spacious, morgue quiet and Hulk powerful. 0-60 in 5.5 sec. Useful on the 836W on ramp. A wolf in wolf’s clothing.The RLX has too many blade runner-esque features to list here. I was most impressed with the Reactive Force Pedal gesture. It’s a futuristic system that modifies pedal feedback to help the driver use the proper amount of engine power for the conditions. In the snow, for instance, it will provide more resistance to mildly dissuade your right foot from asking the tires to do too much. Amazing. For the car buffs, here are the basics:

Engine:3.5L V6 + 3 electric motors Power:377 HP / 377 LB-FT Transmission:7-Speed DCT Drivetrain:AWD Curb Weight:4,312 LBS Seating:2+3 Cargo:12.0 CU-FT MPG:28 City / 32 HWY

In the market for a new luxury car that stands out ? Do yourself a favor and get the Acura RLX Hybrid. For more information visit http://www.acura.com/modellanding.aspx?model=rlx
