At Museum of Discovery and Science, March 30
On Friday, March 30, 2012, Museum of Discovery and Science will host its 17th Annual Wine & Culinary Celebration, made possible by Bank of America. All proceeds from this spectacular event benefit the Museum. The big news this year is we now have twice the space because of the EcoDiscovery Center expansion, which means more attendees will get to enjoy a larger selection of restaurants, wineries, distilleries and breweries. An estimated 1,800 guests are expected to attend this year’s Celebration.
The Wine & Culinary Celebration will showcase a sequence of wine with food pairings, each bound to delight, educate and entertain guests and their palates. And this year, for the first time, the Celebration will feature an array of champagne, spirits and craft beers. More than 40 of South Florida’s top restaurants and chefs will be represented, as well as wines from around the world, courtesy of Southern Wine and Spirits. The event also features a silent auction, tasting seminars in the new learning labs, and a complimentary Reidel wine glass for every guest.
The evening will start off with an exclusive VIP Martini Reception from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. VIP guests will enjoy a champagne tasting with champagne expert, “Champagne Wayne” Ballard, paired with a culinary demonstration featuring one of the Chef Spotlight chefs. This year, Chef Spotlight will shine on Chef Angelo Elia of Casa D’Angelo’s, Chef Sean McDonald of ilios at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, and Chef Chi Chan of Truluck’s. The VIP evening concludes with exclusive access to the ultra chic Hilton Fort Lauderdale VIP Lounge to eat, drink and dance under the stars from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m
