Dress to Excess at Michael Mina's Pizza & Burger Ugly Sweater Party
The holiday season is upon us so it’s time to dig out your Christmas sweater( or sweatshirt or t-shirt, this is Miami, afterall) and celebrate with your friends. On Friday, December 16, 2016 from 6 – 8 p.m. join the Pizza & Burger by Michael Mina squad for the restaurant’s first annual Ugly Sweater Party. Dress to impress in your holiday worst for a chance to win the ultimate day at Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
Three judges – Kelly Blanco, reporter for NBC6, Amber Love Bond, editor of Brickell Living (and MIAbites Contributor) and Jennifer Agress, Miami editor of Dining Out Magazine ,will select a winner for whose sweater is the ugliest. The winning sweater will be based on creativity, so don’t be afraid to dust off your glue gun and dig out your favorite glitter pen. The winner of the contest will win a one-day experience in an Ultra or Arkadia Cabana for up to ten guests, one bottle of tequila and enjoy a $300 dinner credit at Pizza & Burger.
If you are looking for a fun excuse to dress up, MIAbites offers up a couple web sites to pick the appropriate ( and hopefully winning ) outfit. We especially like this Pizza and Cat themed sweatshirt from Raisevern and available on Amazon.com. And for our friends, MiamiFoodPug this Pug themed sweatshirt also on Amazon. Other shopping sites include TipsyElves.com and UglyChristmasSweater.com.
Throughout the evening party-goers will enjoy drink and food specials. Beers on tap are all exclusive to local brewers and during the party $1 from every draft beer goes to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. As the newest member to the Fontainebleau family, Pizza & Burger by Michael Mina has a menu that includes made from scratch, farm-fresh, multi-ingredient pizzas, burgers, large plates, crave-able snacks and craft cocktails. There is a lively atmosphere with upbeat music, and table top games giving guests the feeling of being at a casual backyard bash.
