Mouthwatering Watermelon Beverage Helps Support Breast Cancer Research

It’s been an unseasonably hot October this year; summer just doesn’t want to end the party! Well we aren't complaining, because with the hot weather comes the most refreshing drinks! One of which is Chef Richard’s, of Richard Sandoval Restaurant, Pink Ribbon Agua Fresca. Made of fresh watermelon and saturated in antioxidants, this drink is as delicious as they come.

This beverage is one of Chef Richard’s favorites since it was served at his grandmother’s dining room table and, in that way, honors one of the most important women in his life, while also paying homage to his Mexican roots.

CULINARY OCCASIONS
Eating Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and all throughout the country organizations and businesses are doing their part to raise awareness of the disease, as well as to raise funds for finding a cure. Pink has become the color of the fight to end breast cancer, and many of South Florida’s businesses are going pink this month in support of breast cancer awareness and research. Not least among them are some of our most popular dining destinations that are offering deals, special dinners, and other promotions during the month of October.

Returning for the fourth year in a row is “Bleau Goes Pink” at the Fontainebleau resort in Miami Beach. The resort’s three AAA four diamond restaurants - Hakkasan, Gotham Steak, and Scarpetta - will each be offering “Dine for the Cure” menus featuring three courses for $45. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, which has consistently fought to end breast cancer through awareness and early diagnosis, as well as research. “Dine for the Cure” dinner menus are available Sunday through Thursday, and diners will receive a discounted valet rate of $12. For more information, please visit www.fontainebleau.com. For reservations, please call (877) 326 - 7412. Menus are as follows:
