On May 18th, Havaianas hosted a local getaway to a Night in Rio. Miami’s hispanic influencers were transported to Rio for a night of dancing, eating and mingling. Upon arrival, guests were escorted to a shoe valet where a swap was performed. Guests were gifted a pair of the latest styles in Havaianas to wear for the samba party.

Red and white sangrias were served and samba dancers got the party started. Influencers gathered to watch the Brazilian inspired dance party and quickly formed a conga line. As dancing amped up an appetite, influencers were treated to a buffet dinner. Items served included pan de bono (specialty cheese bread), steak, salad and brigaderos (Brazilian delicacy) covered in sprinkles or shredded coconut for dessert.

Guests took selfies and group pictures at local set up of the world famous ‘Selaron Steps.’ The Selaron Steps are known as the work of Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón who claimed it as “my tribute to the Brazilian people”.

The transport to a Night in Rio was one to remember for those in attendance.

JOE & THE JUICE Fuels up Miami

May 24, 2017

20170524_112658-960x720.jpg

Joe & The Juice has been all the hype when launching at each of their 180 locations worldwide. Now, it has arrived in sunny South Florida to fuel up the community with smoothies, pressed juices and grub. The difference between Joe & The Juice and other coffee shops is the atmosphere and culture. If you think you are walking into any ordinary coffee shop for a cup of Joe… You are wrong!

Miami is known for its party and lifestyle scene. Joe & The Juice is bringing the party to health conscious Joe and Juice lovers. You can catch the baristas singing along to Calvin Harris – This is What You Came For or concocting their own sing-a-longs. They may also be using the steam from the coffee machine as their own club-like smoke machine. The hype is REAL!

In New York City, lines formed outside during a casting call with hopefuls looking to score a job placement. Why? Employees have the opportunity to work at locations around the world. Not only are you working alongside co-workers at the coffee shop, but you can live with them too! Think of it as Real World meets Joe & The Juice. Miami Joe & The Juicers’ live together in a mansion with pool and bay-view. It’s no wonder they flock at the opportunity to join the work-party.

The company is known to open locations in clusters. Therefore, expect for a location to pop up in your neighborhood soon. The flagship is now open for business at 1600 Collins Avenue on Miami Beach.

From the pressed juice selection, we recommend the Green Shield made with Cucumber, Kale, Broccoli, Spinach and Apple. As far as shakes, grab a Power Shake with Strawberry, Banana and Vanilla Milk. All the sandwiches come on flatbreads, we say go for the Avocado which includes Avocado (duh), Tomato, Mozzarella and Pesto. You can’t go wrong with any Joe. If you can’t decide opt for the Pink and Purple Lattes! One is lighter in carbs and grams of fat than other.

Once you’ve got your grub on, don’t forget to snap some pictures at their Joe & Me Photo Booth! Leave a copy with them and take a copy for keeps!

He states to be connected to the Adidas brand, this being the reason as to how he receives the Yeezy sneakers before public release. Clarifying that the Yeezy’s are Kanye’s collaboration with Adidas.

Being the first artist signed to Roc Nation Latin, we asked whether a collaboration with Jay-Z could be in his plans. To which he responded, “Could be.” The music genre is filled with newcomers and Mozart states he keeps uniqueness by “swimming against the current.” He aims to not make music that the audience wants, but rather innovates to bring his audience a new style of music.

April 28, 2017

cmx2-960x638.jpg

CMX Cinemas is now open at Brickell City Centre. Miami Crowd went on a tour and here are three things you should know:

  1. The Seats Are Fully Equipped

Seating in this theater is dangerously more comfortable than your couch at home. You may not want to go home. No, really! You have the option to recline your chair, store your personal belongings underneath, press a button to call a server, charge your phone and even turn on a night light. Plus, there’s wifi!

  1. Your Hispanic Family Will Thank You

You won’t have to translate to your abuelitos throughout the whole movie. When you arrive at CMX cinemas, you can request a translation device. You place it on the swivel table when you sit down and you can read the subtitles as you watch the movie. Voila!

  1. Great Variety of Food and Drink Options

Order a cheeseburger, a manhattan and a skillet baked chocolate chunk cookie. The menu has a variety of options that you would normally not expect when visiting a movie theater. A well crafted cocktail and pulled pork sliders, yes please! Other items we loved: The Tavern Style Pepperoni Pizza, Crispy Chicken Sandwich and The Turkey BLT.
