Well-known personalities from the Food Network and Cooking Channel are joined by up-and coming professionals from just around the corner and around the globe. Some names from the Food Network that might ring a bell are Ted Allen, Giada De Laurentiis, Guy Fieri, Robert Irvine, and Rachael Ray. Emeril Lagasse, Hedy Goldsmith, Tia Mowry, and a few others from the Cooking Channel will also be making appearances.

The fest is packed full of demonstrations, seminars, and interactive events that will challenge everything you know about preparing food. Watch the masters at work and learn a thing or two about putting a new spin on a classic dish. You never know; your new favorite dish might be just around the corner.

If you're looking for a break from the crowds and need a nice place to sit down for a meal, we invite you to dine in the Brisa Bistro, our restaurant at the Hilton Miami Downtown.

2016 Miami International Boat ShowProgressive® Insurance Miami International Boat Show®
Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin
February 11th -16th, 2016
Miami, Florida 

For six whole days, Miami's great aquatic centered venue will be full of displays, demos, and activities that all have to do with boats and having fun on the water. USCG licensed captains will be on hand for expert instruction on various boating skills, visitors will have the opportunity to try boats and see how they fare before purchasing them, and for more interactive fun stop by the new Try It cove to get a lesson in kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, and more.

If you need to give your sea legs a break, there are many vendors and great things to see on land as well. Get up close and personal with famous boats, including the original Miami Vice Scarab Speedboat - feel the power you could only imagine as you watched it in action on the 1980's hit show; a restoration of Ernest Hemingway's boat Pilar – the vessel that inspired some of his most famous works; the Carol Suzanne, a vintage racing boat from South Florida – 100mph was nothing in her racing days.

Huge motors and crazy speeds aren't for everyone, though. That’s why Strictly Sail Miami, an all-sail boat show, is happening almost simultaneously at Miamarina Bayside.

For a nice break from the crowds, we invite you to come on over to the Hilton Miami Downtown to enjoy a nice meal at our restaurant Brisa Bistro.
