Get Ready for SOBE Seafood Fest!

10712958_703072903104507_2036351694341505686_nOne of the reasons many book a vacation to a Miami Beach Hotel is to enjoy the city’s delicious food and the many food festivals that happen year round. There’s rarely a moment where you won’t have the opportunity to try delicious food. But one of the best times of the year particularly for seafood lovers is Stone Crab Season, which is when stone crabs become available to the public at many restaurants. One festival that seafood loving guests of the Z Ocean South Beach Hotel will particularly enjoy is the Hess Select South Beach Food Festival.

Now in its second year, the Hess Select South Beach Food Festival celebrates all things seafood. The event begins on Wednesday October 22 with a VIP kick off at Joe’s Stone Crab where guests will be treated to a four course dinner with wine and beer pairings and copious amounts of Joe’s famous stone crabs.

It will continue into Thursday, October 23 with the Seafood Shuffle Wine and Dine, where guests can get a free glass of wine at the 5 to 7 participating restaurants as well as $5 seafood bites. On Friday, October 24, guests can pass by the Chef Showdown at the Seafood & Sneakers Ball which will be a VIP gala experience that will include competition between top chefs in the area and will include open bars, tastings, raw bar, chef demos, live auction and more.

But the main event is what everyone is looking forward to. Seafood lovers can go to the grand tasting on Saturday, October 25 with an extraordinary amount of delicious grub from the ocean. 10 participating restaurants will show off their talents and set up pop-up stations where you can sample selections of fresh seafood plates made in a variety of ways. In addition, there will be bars, live entertainment, a Health Village, and a kids zone. It will be fun for everyone who attends with plenty of activities to enjoy.

If you wish to stay at a Miami Beach Hotel while participating in the SoBe Seafood Festival, there is no better choice than the Z Ocean South Beach Hotel. Centrally located and within minutes of the festival, the hotel offers a wonderful selection of amenities that rival top hotels on Ocean Drive.
