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!
http://www.handmade-events.com/pop-up.php

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.
