Mystery Dates is a series of glamorous dinner parties held concurrently at the homes of private art collectors and designers around Miami. The mystery is that guests learn only that evening, which dinner they will attend. After an amazing meal and tours of private collections, guests will meet at The Shore Club for dessert and dancing. This year Mystery Dates dinners will be hosted by Joe Berg, Robert Blumenthal, Sam Burstyn and daughter Alana Burstyn, Lizzie Dascal, Barbara Herzberg, Nina Johnson, Kathryn and Dan Mikesell, Dale and Richard Newberg and Billy Weisman among others.
Mystery Dates is chaired by Meredith Becker, Valerie Graves, Zubin Nagpal, Erin Newberg and Anne Owen. Sponsors of this year’s event are Braman Motors of Miami, Museo Vault, Elle Décor, The Brickellian, Miami Magazine, Juicy Couture, Bombay Sapphire, The Shore Club, and Lyon + Lyon.
