#OutandAboutAva Goes on an #Easter2015 @Loews_Hotels #LoewsMiami Daycation~Recap by #SobeSavvy !

Easter in Miami usually involves the easter bunny, candy and a easter egghunt on the beach ! Loews Miami Beach has all 3 of those prerequisites covered. Some people know Loews as a large convention size hotel. As big as this luxury hotel appears there is one place where intimacy, service and exclusivity merge.That place is an exclusive pool area they call “soak”.

Think sumptuous daybeds, stellar personal service and drink surprises {gratis} served throughout the day in this VIP area. Guests of Soak get a welcome basket of freshly cut fruit and bottled smoothies. Plush towels and face misters. Pampering and peace rule the day at Soak. Cabanas and private butler/waiter service are at your disposal. Have drinks, lunch or both !! I loved it, my hubby loved it and most importantly my little one had a blast. Soak it up at Soak.

The venerable institution on Las Olas called American Social Bar & Restaurant now has a Miami outpost in Brickell

Located on the ground floor of the Neo Vertika building, it is almost 3 times the size of their Las Olas location. It also has something their other location lacks. An expansive outdoor patio area with fire pits and beautiful views of yachts cruising down the Miami River. You can choose from comfy lounge areas or normal tables. Flat screens abound outside so you can catch a Heat or Dolphins game while dining and drinking al fresco. Expect the same stellar service and cuisine. They have an a la carte brunch menu on weekends. We started with a half dozen of Kusshi oysters from British Columbia. Uber fresh ! By the end of our meal we had tried everything from their Chicken & Waffles to the PEI mussels. The crab scramble disappeared quickly also from our table! The Chicken & Waffles had a reverse twist. The sweetness of marscapone was on the chicken and herbs were infused in the waffles. Uniquely delicious. Bottomless mimosas helped wash all the goodness down. Inside, patrons of the Las Olas location will instantly recognize the tables with the self serving beer spouts on the tables. Yup. Self serve beer. You can order a pre determined amount for your table or party and voila. You too can be bartender for your friends. Great food indoor or out. Good food and good service with a amazing river view. We loved it ! American Social is the kind of place where if you frequent enough, everybody will know your name.
