Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine

Calirosa Tequila Sunset Happy Hour + Dinner

You had me at pink tequila! Calirosa Tequila is the creation of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and his supermodel wife Behati Prinsloo known for its unique rosy hue due to its production in red wine barrels instead of the usual whiskey or bourbon.

Two separate events, the celebrity couple first hosted an intimate happy hour at The Beach Club at 1 Hotel South Beach followed by a delicious dinner at Como Como at Moxy South Beach, both centered around the trio of Calirosa Tequilas: Rosa Blanco, Añejo, and Extra Añejo.

Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives LIVE presented by Coke Zero 

Guy Fieri was the star of the show at 2022’s SOBEWFF and he took everyone to Flavortown! This event took attendees on a culinary tour of the best eats from Guy’s hit show ‘Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.’ This event also featured two stages, one with a DJ and sandy dance floor and the other with a rock band jamming out to Queen and Jon Bon Jovi. With cocktail booths lined up down the middle and food tents surrounding either side, guests were in a flavortown heaven they won’t soon forget.
