We were in Miami this past weekend attending the Best Buddies gala. Best Buddies is a non-profit that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities with friendships, jobs, and leadership development. The annual gala in Miami is always a fun event to attend—both in terms of helping a very worthy cause and because Miami has some of the best people watching ever.
This year’s theme was rock-and-roll. There were Michael Jackson and Prince impersonators who were quite talented. There was also Guns ’n’ Roses impersonators, which we had to ask about as neither of us were ever Guns ’n’ Roses fans.
There were several celebrities attending, but the one I got a photo with is Nolan Gould, who plays Luke in “Modern Family.” He is a super nice kid, very personable and low-key.
Kesha was the entertainment, and while her voice leaves something to be desired, she puts on a fun show. She also was quite lovely to talk to. I especially like her since she admired my necklace (which is a piece of meteorite).
The weather was perfect—around 80 degrees and breezy. We spent some of the weekend going to the Wolfsonian, a museum specializing in propaganda materials (seems somehow very apt right now) and walking through one of the outdoor malls.
We also had a tremendous meal at Bazaar, one of Jose Andres’s restaurants, but more about that in a later blog post.
