    [Winter brunches at Merkato 55]

    We started off our week with the cold realization that our city celebrates the season of winter much more so than Miami does.  We spent half of Monday reliving Art Basel:

    [Art Basel Makes For A Perfect Anniversary Party]

    [Tommy Hilfiger & Vanity Fair Take Free Arts To Miami]

    [The GenArt Party Draws Eclectic Crowd]

    [Tory Burch Private Dinner Party at Fountainbleau]

    Including stopping by the newest member of the Miami nightlife, club LIV in Fountainebleau where guests like the Hilton sisters, Russell Simmons and Lenny Kravitz.

    While the weather here is shockingly cold, the brunches at Merkato 55 are just heating up.  This party is unlike anything you've ever experienced.  Let Derek and Daniel help rid you of your winter blues

    The Holiday Parties are just getting started.  Here's some of the ones we have stopped by so far: [Bacardi USA Holiday Party At Cain][Winter Wonderland at the Botanical Gardens]
