Florida International The Forge

This and That

The party melting pot comes to a boil

BY Florida International Magazine

South Florida’s social scene is nothing if not diverse. Presidents one minute. Star DJs the next. Case in point” Commander-in Chief Barack Obama’s recent visit to Miami and that much-talked-about party at Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s home in Star Island. Somewhere along the way, the Prez made time for philanthropist Lois Pope who presented him with the 2010 American veterans disabled for Life Silver Dollar. The commemorative silver coin (only one of two issued each year) honored disabled veterans in all service branches of the U.s. military…Over at the W Fort Lauderdale, DJ extraordinaire and W Global Music Director Michaelangelo L’Acqua did his thing on the spin table to celebrate the releasing of Symmetry, the first CD he compiled for the hotel chain…To continue the buzz for the Make-A-Wish Ball in November, the event’s “Three Amigos” (Norman Wedderburn, Shareef Malnik, and Robert Hill) recently hosted the Kick-Off at the InterContinental Hotel in downtown Miami, a pre-party of sorts where they shared some facts about this year’s editions to the ball. Among the tidbits revealed was this year’s Asian theme. Among guest cheering (and anticipating) were James Ferraro, Michael Capponi and Fabian Bassabe…On a different note, Trump Hollywood recently hosted two events to celebrate its newest residences. One was in honor of the Sky Residence, the newest model unit at the tower, designed by Steven Gurowitz of Interiors by Steven G., and the other was for the debut of designers Tui Pranich’s new model residence. Both celebrations featured various members of South Florida’s design and real estate arenas…Steel and leather were in the mind of more than 500 guest who attended the launch party for the Ferrari 458 Italia model at Ferrari-Maserati of Fort Lauderdale. Showroom President Garrett Hayim was on hand to welcome guests and clients, all of whom enjoyed tunes by DJ Irie, a fashion show featuring Ritchie Swimwear suites, hors d’oeuvres from East City Grill and plenty of wine and cocktails…And under the “completely random” category: Backstreet Boys members Nick Carter and Howie Dorough hosted the band’s after-concert party at the Hard Rock in Hollywood, and the Americal Idol winner Lee DeWyze made a stop at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando to greet fans just days after his win on the FOX show.
