Celebrity Chef Volleyball Tournament Saturday, February 21, 12pm-2pm - Thompson Hotel, 4041 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

The third annual Celebrity Chef Volleyball Tournament is taking the heat to the next level this year as the Florida International University Sand Volleyball Team joins nearly two dozen chefs, in town for the 14th annual Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE, to compete against each other in a round-robin, winner-take-all showdown on the beach. Host Spike Mendelsohn has teamed up with an all-star roster of chefs and food personalities; including Josh Capon, Pat LaFrieda, Marc Murphy, Stephanie Izard, Dale Talde, Daniel Holzman, and Franklin Becker. They’ll take on the celebrated, pre-season top ranked FIU Women Team. Come and watch your favorite chefs get down and dirty in the sand trying their best to play some competitive beach volleyball. Afterwards, we will be celebrating the newly crowned kings and queens of the beach at a special VIP reception. Expect plenty sun, sand, and some serious trash talking.
