By Kenny Spahn 

Attention Food & Wine fans, networking movers & shakers, science geeks, and party-goers of all sorts: The MODS Celebration is almost here! “The 25th Annual Museum of Discovery and Science / Bank of America Wine, Spirits and Culinary Celebration,” to be exact, which takes place Friday, March 13.  As always, the big bash takes place at The Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS), withall proceeds going to the Museum. 

Now in its 25th consecutive year, the MODS Celebration is a perennial fan favorite and has become one south Florida’s favorite and longest running culinary events. Don’t miss this amazing chance to sip, savor, and socialize amongst 1,500-or-so like-minded partygoers, amidst the fun and wonders of the MODS, while enjoying unlimited samplings from dozens of South Florida’s top eateries. The Celebration is always spectacular, and now with the big 25th Anniversary, it promises to be even better than ever.

South Florida’s culinary talent will truly be on display, with over two dozen all-star eateries participating, including:  A Joy Wallace Catering, Barbados Tourism Marketing, Boatyard, Burlock Coast, Café ala Carte, Cookies by Design, CrepeMaker, Fare to Remember Catering, Grateful Palate Catering, Healthy Xpress, John Knox Village,  Kona Ice of Hollywood Beach, Krispy Kreme, Lobster Bar Sea Grille, Mai Kai, Mastro’s Ocean Club, Rooftop, S3, Seasons 52, Shooters Waterfront, Sistrunk Marketplace & Brewery, Susie’s Scrumptious Sweets, Tasteful Thoughts, Truluck’s, Wild Thyme Oceanside Eatery, YOLO, YOT Bar & Kitchen, and more!

To accompany all this fine fare, enjoy endless tastings of fine wines, along with plenty of craft beers and select spirits (thanks to sponsor Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits) – plus a complimentary commemorative wine glass to take home.  Also on tap for the evening: a Silent Auction with fantastic prize packages, live entertainment, and more.  And of course, the ever-popular After Party in the MODS Atrium, where the food & drink continue, the music (and the guests!) get livelier, and partygoers dance off the calories under the stars.


“The Wine, Spirits and Culinary Celebration is always an incredible event in South Florida,” notes Joseph Cox, President and CEO of the Museum, “We strive to create unforgettable experience for each guest, with great food, wine and spirits, but most importantly, the coming together as a community for a local organization. This year will be another fantastic night!”

The MODS Celebration is a fantastic culinary celebration on its own – but what makes this even really special is not just the food and drink – it’s also the most fun and coolest setting of them all!  That’s because it all happens within the awesome environs of the Museum of Discovery and Science – so in-between bites and sips you can roam around and explore, marvel at the awesome displays and live animals, and challenge your skills at some of the interactive games (particularly fun after a few dozen wine samplings!) – and maybe even learn a few things!

So mark your calendars for March 13 – and see you at the MODS!
