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, 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 :)
