The sixth of Miami mini-chain MyCeviche in The Shops at Midtown, is making its own bold grand opening statement, with a three-day block party of free food, drink, fun, fitness, art and beauty. Coz nothing says beauty like raw, marinated fish. But who cares?
Starting Friday, December 16, the open-to-the-public, soiree celebrates the company’s mantra of living the good life with all-around wellness, incorporating positivity, health, fitness, fun, charity, art, beauty and, of course, great food and drink. Here’s the schedule:
Friday, December 16, 2016 (normal business hours of 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.)
Open-to-the-public festivities kick-off with a fundraiser supporting ICA Narratives, a local offsite arts program that works with underserved community organizations, providing participants with the tools and framework to think critically about themselves, their place in the world around them, and their ability to express themselves, through a series of independent workshops. Aside from being among the first to see the new MyCeviche, patrons will receive food and drink samples, hear great music, give back to the community (20% of all proceeds will go toward aiding ICA’s commendable efforts) and feast their eyes on the product of ICA’s work with an art display on the patio. The full new menu will be available for purchase.
Saturday, December 17, 2016 (noon- 2 p.m.)
