With many of us using our time at home to clean closets, the question becomes where to donate everything. Here’s a list of seven places that would welcome your clothing donations in Miami in 2020 along with many other items that are listed below, including furniture. Some are receiving donations now. Be sure to call before you go to double check opening, times, and what they’re looking for.
Congratulations to the winner of the drawing for a gourmet dinner for two at Semilla French Bistro & Wine Bar. I returned again last Friday for a dinner for culinary society Les Dames d’Escoffier South Florida. What a dinner! Everyone gave it high marks! To find out who won, read on. Also, get a preview of our next reader event you won’t want to miss!
The first reader event of the year was sold out!!!! Here’s a photo gallery of the event and people, all of the eye candy and delectable dishes at Palat.
Many thanks for your enthusiastic response to our upcoming reader event April 11! In fact, only 5 places are left, so if you’re thinking of coming, let me know ASAP. You can email me or write a comment below. We have a great spot for a bite afterwards — Palat in Buena Vista. The Mediterranean food is delicious, it’s reasonably priced, and “buzzy”. See below for an earlier writeup. Special door prize too!
Our first exclusive reader event of 2018 is a very special one — a reception at French concept store, L’appartement Concept Store in Wynwood followed by a bite at one of the local hot spots (more on that next week). The event will be on Wednesday, April 11 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. We’ll be the guests of the Founder and Creative Director Emmanuelle Bernard who will also be generously giving everyone a gift bag!
