Last night, Mommy Mafia was invited to the Grand Opening party for Total Wine South Beach. Total Wine & More‘s newest store is located in the Fifth & Alton shopping center, on the 3rd floor. (Above Publix and on the same floor as Best Buy.) With blogging buddy @MamasMission and our husbands in tow, it made for quite a fun date night. I also happened to run into a few South Beach friends that we hadn’t seen in a while, including a Mafia Mommy who has a new baby that I hadn’t met yet. (Elaina, your baby is GORGEOUS!) Needless to say, it was a great night filled with giant ribbon cutting scissors, wine tastings, girls dancing with champagne, Miami’s New World Symphony and even a little private lesson about some lesser known Bourbon Whiskeys.
A parade of girls dancing with Moet & Chandon, led by a drum line.
Patrón tasting: Patrón Citrónge Lime Liqueur, Patrón Citrónge Mango, and XO Cafe. This woman was so cute. She kept saying, “Come try a zzzip!”
When I saw THIS bag, I tweeted:
I NEED this purse in my life! Wait- it’s not a purse- IT’S AN INSULATED BAG FOR WINE
We met with Jason, the Store Manger from the Total Wine Pembroke Pines store. We had a great conversation about the Kentucky Derby and Bourbon. He told my DH to try Widow Jane, so we picked up a bottle.
And of COURSE we couldn’t leave empty handed!
Thanks again Total Wine & More for the invite! Stop by this weekend if you get the chance, during their Grand Opening weekend (October 15-18), Total Wine & More will donate a portion of their Grand Opening sales to help support the New World Symphony Academy.
