Hard to believe that five years ago, when then Sen. Barack Obama was campaigning for the Democratic nomination, Fidel Castro had stepped down after 49 years as Cuba's president, and the New York Giants had ended the New England Patriots chance at a perfect season in the Super Bowl, The Miami Herald launched Miami.com, its events, entertainment and lifestyle website.
Now five years later, even with gas prices still hovering around $4 a gallon, Miami.com is hitting its stride, coming off its most successful year of web traffic.
So to celebrate the milestone anniversary we aren't throwing just one party. This is Miami, after all. We are throwing several parties from Feb. 13 - 18, ranging from cocktail hours to nightclub nights. We are also planning two special dinner events at Oak Tavern on Saturday, Feb. 16 and Eating House on Monday, Feb. 18.
As always, YOU are invited. All you need to do is RSVP and enjoy. Below are more details.
