Where I Stayed in Miami Beach and What we Did on the First Night

Note:  Due to technical difficulties this blog was posted late in the day and therefore, will run for another 24 hours.  Thank you for your patience and understanding and please, feel free to comment again if you already have.  I enjoy all of your comments!

Yesterday, I blogged about what I did on my second day in Miami, where I went to attend the annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival.  Thank you all for your wonderful comments.  I love reading each and every one of them!  Backing up to last Friday, my makeup artist, Daisy Schwartzberg and I flew from New York and landed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida around 2:30 in the afternoon.  After a 30-minute drive, we arrived at the spectacular Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach, where we were invited guests during our stay in Florida.  My ocean view suite was simply lovely and I was treated some amazing and relaxing spa sessions, including a Deep Tissue Massage, a Sensitive Skin Facial, an Ocean Salt Glow Conditioning Body Scrub, and a Thai Massage.

Later that evening, we drove to the famous Fontainebleau Hotel to attend the Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best Sponsored by Bank of America.  This exciting event features the best new chefs and pairs their dishes with the best wines rated 90-points, or higher, on Wine Spectator’s scale.  Needless to say, there was so much great food and so much terrific wine!
