Experience SOFI Culinary Tour Returns!  Wednesday, July 17

See, Taste, and Experience Five Blocks of South Beach!

$10 Discount with exclusive promotion code: BOCA!

Get ready, fellow Foodies – the Experience SOFI Culinary Tour is almost here!  This truly unique interactive culinary experience offers an up-close-and-personal grand tasting of South Beach’s famed South of Fifth Street (“SOFI”) district, all for one low price.  The SOFI stands apart from other food & wine events —  because you don’t just stop by a temporary table at some festival site, you actually get to visit and experience each restaurant in person!  It all happens Wednesday, July 17th, from 6:30 – 9:30 pm.

Tickets are 100% all-inclusive, with food and drink at every stop, plus air conditioned luxury mini busses to chauffeur you around in cool VIP comfort.


Here’s your chance to taste and experience exclusive culinary creations, pared with specially selected wines and craft cocktails for each dish, from nearly two dozen of the area’s top restaurants and hot spots, along with a cultural and exploratory tour of the SOFI area. Embark upon on a five block, all-inclusive culinary tour, with exclusive access to each restaurant’s VIP area to sample, sip, mix, & mingle with the area’s top chefs, artists, celebrities, and fellow party-goers — with food and drink at every stop!  And the best part, it’s all offered at a surprisingly affordable price of only $65 (or $55, if purchased in June).

Then, tour, taste and toast to your heart’s content on this completely all-inclusive tour!  Savor the Chef’s exclusive creation at each stop, paired with a signature craft cocktail or wine to match. And we’re talkin’ some top-notch restaurants, here! This year’s lineup includes: Amare Ristorante, Azabu, Casablanca Cigar Bar, Forte dei Marmi, Fratelli la Bufala, Joe’s Stone Crab, La Moderna, Lilikoi Organic Living, Lobster Shack, Minnow Bar Pop Up, Nikki Beach, Planta, Portofino Wine Bank, Red The Steakhouse South Beach, Seawell Fish n’ Oyster, South Pointe Tavern, Stubborn Seed, The Jim & Neesie, The Local House at Sense Beach House Hotel , The Scape Goat, Upland, and more!  PLUS, the SOFI tour also includes art galleries and museums (each with their own food & drink offerings), including the FIU Jewish Museum of Florida, F1rst Surf Shop, and Roses & Dreams boutique  – so you get an extra dip into the SoBe culture pool!   And to make the experience even more enjoyable, you’ll be chauffeured in cool comfort from stop to stop in luxury mini busses!  (Or you can just walk from place to place, to work up an appetite for the next sampling!).


But wait, there’s more!”  When the Dine-Around Experience ends at 9:30 the Party keeps going in true SoBe style, at the Celebrity Cruises After Party, held at Red The Steakhouse South Beach.  Get a virtual tour of Celebrity Cruise’s all-new, $1 Billion ship, The Edge, and enjoy  signature cocktails, desserts, entertainment, and the incredible ‘Silent Disco” experience until 11 PM.
