Holiday party invitations begin rolling in, for our household, in the month of November. There are always a few events we all agree, as a family, that we must attend. This year, the Porsche party given by @rafih_auto_groupmbno was definitely a GO!
Our family has done business with @MercedesBenzCLE for years now and have always enjoyed the events that they put on for their patrons. They have recently changed owners but the new team did not fail to impress with this affair.
When we entered there were multiple tables filled with light bites including crudité, meatballs, mini sandwiches, pasta and dessert. Everyone was encouraged to mingle, eat and enjoy complimentary drinks while waiting for the new Porsche 911 to be unveiled. There was an older model of the 911 roped off and on display near by so we would be able to compare the original body with the newest version. We decided to sit next to the classic model while we enjoyed our plates.
In addition to the music that played there was an amazing Etch-A-Sketch artist who was creating a picture of the new automobile from a picture. He took time to share his story about art and it's connection with another classic toy, from the Porsche era, with my mini me. After a quick tutorial and words of encouragement my son was ready to shake, rattle and roll! He was even given an Etch-A-Sketch to take home for his efforts.
Once our bellies were full and we had the chance to share a few laughs with other attendees it was time for the car to be revealed. There was an introduction video that played so we could learn more about the features of the new Porsche 911 including 450hp!
The remainder of the evening was spent enjoying dessert, taking a closer look at the new offerings from Porsche and touring the dealership. We had a fabulous time and will continue to support the @MercedesBenzCLE and @rafih_auto_groupmbno family until our next driver is ready for the road!
Last month my family and I released some energy mid-week to attend the @MercedesBenzCLE Spring House. I received an invitation earlier in May and RSVP'd for us despite it being a Wednesday night engagement. I debated on bringing the kid all week but decided in the final hours before the event he was mature and respectful enough to attend.
And I am so glad that I did. The event was held outdoors and the Cleveland weather actually cooperated with us. We started by taking a fun family picture at the photo booth which included some regal themed props. The step and repeat was filled with logos from the luxury vehicles the dealership sells. Each of us immediately found the prop that expressed our mood and struck a pose!
Once we finished our photo opportunity we strolled over the cigar table where guests received complimentary hand rolled cigars. The guys received a standard cigar while ladies received a slight smaller chocolate flavored stogie. It was now time to find a place to sit before having a drink and bite to eat. There were several selections available in both categories. @EffenVodka provided signature cocktails on the @MercedesBenz end of the property while @MakersMark was featured at the @Maserati_HQ end.
We took a look at some of the newer models for @MercedesBenz while we were there. There was a live band jazz which added to the lux atmosphere. The drinks and conversations flowed until the events end. We requested our vehicle from valet relaxed and ready for another Thursday!
Earlier this year, I shared a blog post about Cars & Cappuccinos. a Mercedes Benz event, sponsored by the @BernieMorenoCo, and promised to post about the first event in their Summer Concert Series.
Well here it is!
The June event was filled with music, foods, tequila, ice cream, fun photo opps and so much more (#luxurycars)!
My husband and I made it family affair this time and enjoyed time with our son and my mother. Mom and I had massages while the boys grabbed a bite to eat, then my husband and I headed over to one of the 3 bars to grab complimentary margaritas with a shot of @HornitosTequila (sooo smooth) while my son and mother took pictures at the photo station.
There was something for everyone at this concert and the food and music were excellent. The Latin Jazz Players (@LJPJazz) play songs that were perfect for a summer afternoon of fun. Every tune sounded as if they were recording a live album, it was awesome. Once we finished eating our meals complete with dessert we all burned a few calories taking a walk to look at the Mercedes, Porsches, and other luxury vehicles on display. We even tried our hands at putting on a miniature golf hole along the way.
The event was absolutely a success and although we intended to only stay an hour or so we partied until the event ended. There are two more events scheduled for this summer and we plan to attend them both. Until then check out the images below and feel free to leave your comments.
Last month, I received an invitation from my car dealership to attend an event called, Cars & Cappuccinos. This event is one of several that @BernieMorenoCo sponsors for its patrons and car enthusiasts alike. @BernieMoreno knows how to pull together an upscale event that makes attendees feel right at home. Don't believe me? The Summer Concert Series, from a few years back, was an event that my family and friends still talk about! Check out the blog post here. Want more proof the @BernieMorenoCo family knows how to party? Take a look at their 10 Year Anniversary event.
The Cars & Cappuccinos event was initially scheduled a week earlier but due to the weather forecast it was postponed. The timing was actually better, in my opinion, since it fell on the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The sun was shining bright, upbeat music was playing and fresh brewed coffee filled the air.
I did a bit of live streaming during the event while I waited for my hazelnut latte with almond milk. The feedback from my followers was very positive. There were lots of questions about the event details and the cars that were on display. I promised to share my personal favorites from the morning.
While @CaféArnone served amazing specialty brews (there were donuts too), breakfast sandwiches abounded on another food truck a few feet away. I tried the Hammie Sammie made by the good folks at @Offgridfoodtrk. Off the Griddle provided complimentary sandwiches stacked with some of your breakfast favorites. My sandwich was so tall I nearly had to unhinge my jaw for the first bite ;)
The cars displayed by the dealership and guests were just as appealing at the food and drink. There were all types of newer high end automobiles and classics as well. The models below are just a handful of my favorites. There were too many beauties to post them all.
The @BernieMorenoCo has another C&C event scheduled for this summer, as well as, another Summer Concert Series so look for more blog posts soon. Until then feel free to leave your comments below and list any luxury cars you'd like me to share in the future :)
I just received an invitation to Bourbon & Bubbles White Party sponsored by Rolls Royce and 107.3FM later this month. I've attended and blogged about other events with Mercedes Benz and other high end automobile brands and I've never been disappointed. Everything you expect when attending a plush event is what you experience from food to entertainment and luxury complimentary swag! Tickets are still available if you are interested.
