Every vendor showcased their signature sweets or drinks, and graciously passed out samples to eager event-goers. Sweets and drinks stations were sprawled throughout the entire museum space, among gorgeous classic cars, as well as movie memorabilia cars from Batman, Back to the Future, The Flintstones Movie, and the REAL Herbie!

The Miami Auto Museum at the Dezer Collection is truly underrated and definitely deserves to be a go-to place for locals and vacationers alike. Miami New Times shed light on this awesome space, and the location was the perfect spot to enjoy and admire beautiful sweets, and delicious drinks, all while walking among some truly gorgeous and cool cars.

The event showcased delicious treats such as our gourmet madeleines, donuts, cakes, cookies, ice cream, and an array of alcoholic beverages such as sangria, sparkling wine, beer, and more. Guests were encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy worth $10 + to donate to The Little Lighthouse Foundation. All attendees who bring an unwrapped toy received a commemorative glass, which upgraded them from 4 oz. drink samples to regular pours at all drink stations.

Attendees also had the chance to snag last-minute holiday gifts in the Miami New Times Vendor Village, which offered handcrafted items from some of Miami’s most popular vendors.
