Spotted at the Cocoplum Circle

Wondering what those hot pinks snails are? These snails are slowly but surely making their way through Miami.

Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce Holiday Party

This year I’m looking forward to attending the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce Holiday Party. It’s a great event, open to both members of the Chamber and the community.  It will be held Thursday, December 2nd at 5:30PM in the Biltmore Hotel, Country Club Ballroom. Over 25 local vendors are already engaged and will be offering food and beverages for guests to enjoy. Plus this is this a great opportunity to network with business professionals in a festive and cheerful environment.   Probably the most important component of the party is the philanthropic aspect. Each attendee is asked to bring an unwrapped toy for a child or a gift for an elderly individual. These toys and additional monetary proceeds will go directly to deserving charities in the Miami area. Participating charities […]
