October 25th, 2008. Join the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) for its third annual Mystery Dates fundraiser. On Saturday, October 25, ten of Miami’s most inspired hosts will open their homes for intimate dinners featuring art, food and conversation. The “mystery” is which glamorous dinner guests will attend. Dinner locations will only be revealed during a cocktail reception at the museum’s satellite gallery, MOCA at Goldman Warehouse, on the night of the event. Mystery Dates is hosted by the Shakers, MOCA’s young international patrons group.
Mystery Dates begins at 6:00 p.m. with a party at MOCA at Goldman Warehouse, located at 404 NW 26th Street in Miami, where guests will enjoy cocktails and music from DJ Jay Meletiche. On arrival at the cocktail party, guests will be handed an envelope containing the location where they will enjoy dinner featuring wines from Bodega Otazu.
The ten different dinners will be hosted by collectors and design enthusiasts, including: Jim Baxter, Joe Berg, Anna Suarez Burgos and Jose Alonso, Mario Cader-Frech and Robert Wennett, Alberto Chehebar and Jocelyn Katz, Jeff Geldblum, Gloria and Sergio Leyva, Vivian and Ken Pfeiffer, Martin Rozenblum and Debi and Jeff Wechsler.
Each of the participating homes offers an opportunity to dine in a stylish private home and to mingle with other movers and shakers who share an interest in the arts. This year, high-end fashion brands add a luxurious twist on the evening with a peak at their new lines and fabulous gift-bags. This night doesn’t end with dinner – Mystery Dates guests will also enjoy an exciting After-Party at Sky Bar at The Shore Club on South Beach starting at 11:00 p.m.
