“We’re thrilled to launch Sip & Savor as our first-ever summer wide happy hour-esque program to introduce diners to the growing culinary scene in Downtown Gables,” said Aura Reinhardt, Executive Director of the Coral Gables BID. “We’re always striving to give back to the Downtown Coral Gables community and restaurant scene and this event will attract foodies, families, wine lovers and people of all ages to the BID throughout the summer and beyond.”
The two-week program will kick off with an exclusive, special cocktail reception that will take place on July 13 to officially launch Sip & Savor in the Gables to the community.
