World Polo League Beach Polo

World Polo League’s Beach Polo returned to Miami Beach this past weekend with outdoor, breezy matches featuring renowned polo players including Nacho Figueras, Nic Roldan, Melissa Ganzi and Alejandro Novillo Astrada. There was also a celebrity charity polo match benefiting Give Back for Special Equestrians.

The VIP section was both luxurious and spacious. Guests were treated to beachside sips from Kettle One Botanical and Bodivár House of Rose while nibbling on caviar from Oro Caviar. Serving up serious food was the Sexz Chef, who prepared heaping trays of salmon with chimichuri sauce, cilantro spiced shrimp, filet mignon, Italian sausage and mojo pork.

The guest list included the likes of Louis Aguirre, Susanne Birbragher, Kobi Karp, Orianne Collins and Tom Bates, Nick Bettancourt, Romero Britto, Lauren Gnazzo, Carlos and Lori Suarez, Sissy DeMaria Koehne and Guenther Koehne and The Voice of Polo Jan-Eric Franck.

Damian Marley Films at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park

Damian Marley – son of Bob Marley – unveiled a new music video to celebrate Earth Day that was filmed at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park – Miami’s only historically Black beach, he reported in a news release. What was originally known as Miami’s “Colored Only” beach throughout the 1960’s, it was not a factor for Caribbean, South American, and Cuban immigrants of color to find Historic Virginia Key Beach Park to be either the only beach that they too could visit, or the beach they preferred, the release said.   Historic Virginia Key Beach Park has stood through generations, offering outdoor recreation activities, shaded picnic areas with barbecue grills, cabanas and the famous Mini-Train and Carousel amusements rides.  With its lush windswept palms and inviting beach, Historic Virginia Key Beach Park has lured thousands to this tropical paradise. The park recently celebrated it’s 75th-year anniversary and is a Miami cultural landmark that is set to house a civil rights museum.
