More than 150 of Miami’s social elite, local residents, hotel guests and celebrities attended Miami’s leading Full Moon Party at DiLido Beach Club at The Ritz-Carlton South Beach, the only oceanfront restaurant and lounge in town, on Saturday, June 26. Guests included queen table flipper Teresa Giudice of the popular reality television show The Real Housewives of New Jersey, who enjoyed econo chic cocktails and mouth-watering Mediterranean lights bites prepared by celebrity cheftestant Jeff McInnis, of Top Chef Season 5. Deejay Edwin kicked off the first Full Moon Party of the summer by spinning lounge music while guests enjoyed views of the moon rising out of the Atlantic gazing through high tech telescopes. Guidice, who sported a sexy blue dress fit for Miami, lounged with friends over cocktails and socialized with Chef McInnis, who at the end of the night noted he’d ring next time he’s in Jersey. This happened to mark Chef McInnis’ last Full Moon Party at the Ritz-Carlton; he will be venturing out to open up his own restaurant in the coming months, and we will be sure to keep you updated as we learn more about his plans.
DiLido Beach Club is located at The Ritz-Carlton South Beach, 1 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach. Call 786.276.4000 or visit The Ritz-Carlton’s website for more information and a schedule of future Full Moon parties.
