The excitement is growing for MOCA BASH Surf’s Up, the Museum of Contemporary Art’s annual cocktail and dance party. This year, the MOCA BASH celebrates the thrill of surfing. On February 19th, guests will enjoy live entertainment, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and dancing in imaginative settings designed by Miami artists which evoke surf culture from South Florida to the South Pacific.
With the support of sponsors Audi, Morgan Stanley/Smith Barney, Barbara Z. Herzberg, Alan and Diane Lieberman, Janice and Alan Lipton, Ray Ellen and Allan Yarkin, the MOCA Bash Surf’s Up February 19th fundraiser will allow party-goers to experience all aspects of the surfing lifestyle. Colorful surfboards suspended from the ceiling, undulating fabrics evoking ocean waves, lifeguard stands, and bonfires will capture the essence of beach life. Skateboarders and classic surf films will showcase the athletics of the sport. Hula and Limbo Dancers, fire eaters and beach bunnies will inspire party-goers while guest DJs keep the dance floor packed. Suggested attire is Beach Chic.
Top Miami restaurants such as China Grill, Asia de Cuba, Blue Door Delano, Adriana Restaurant, Kung Fu Sushi & Kitchen, Meat Market, Sushi Samba and Shiraz Events Catering will serve a selection of their best menu items. Cocktails will be provided by GREY GOOSE Vodka, with Samuel Adams Beer and wines from Touch Catering.
