The South Beach social season is starting to warm up. Following our brief summer hiatus, we are happy to share our 45th Episode of Alive on South Beach. This Episode features a shout out by award-winning actress Lena Olin and her award-winning husband, Director Lasse Hallstrom. (To see an interview with Lena Olin, see Episode 40 of Alive on South Beach.
Listed on our calendar was a “save the date” for an unspecified event at the Jackie Gleason Fillmore/Miami Beach, so we went. There, we schmoozed, ate, drank and caught up with Lisa Cole, Marketing and PR Director for the Hilton Hotel chain, East Coast Region, as well as with old and new friends. We found out that the event was for event planners – and we were so glad we went – they really know how to throw a party!
Of course, we wouldn’t think of missing a great opportunity to sample delicious food, and we did just that at the SLS Hotel-Raleigh Hotel event showcasing Katsuya, The Bazaar, and HydeBeach restaurants where we ran into “club promoter, pizzeria owner, real estate developer” Tommy Pooch, a South Beach icon. And on Dena’s birthday, we had the best Tiramisu on South Beach at De Luca’s Restaurant on Lincoln Road.
After all the fabulous food and delectable desserts, we went to SweatUSA where we talked to the people who love to sweat, and that included learning how to have a better butt and how to Zumba away pounds. Fitness instructor Jennifer Nicole Lee ended our show with a high-octane shout out.
