Kit + Ace Speaker Series Welcomes Michael & Managing Partner Sunil Bhatt in Coconut Grove 4/26

unnamed (24)

Kit and Ace is an emerging Canadian apparel brand known for its machine-washable “Technical Cashmere” streetwear, made for people living full contact lifestyles.   The brand also strives to engage in innovative endeavors and be inspired by design in all forms that is “future-focused, problem seeking and problem solving.” I’d say we can relate!

KA’s Coconut Grove location is next store to Harry’s Pizzeria®, and we’ve had a hankering to collaborate ever since it opened, shortly after us in November.   For its first speaker series,  KA taps into The Genuine Hospitality Group’s braintrust inviting Michael and managing partner Sunil Bhatt for a talk moderated — care of special Schwartz request — by entrepreneur and champion of local arts and culture Dennis Scholl.

KA’s Speaker Series features local entrepreneurs at the forefront of innovation in their fields to explore how they got started, their company’s approach, keys to success, and future plans.  Join us to celebrate growth in the neighborhood we both call home, and beyond, and enjoy complimentary craft beers from Harry’s.

Date: April 26,2016
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Where: Kit and Ace – Coconut Grove
3401 Main Highway, Coconut Grove/FL 33133
RSVP: Coconutgrove@kitandace.com

We like getting behind young talent, especially when it’s in the family.  After a successful FAM Night performance at Harry’s Pizzeria in Coconut Grove, Harry Schwartz is back with his band Arrowhead, this time for Young Musicians Unite’s annual spring concert… and tickets are live now here!

As always, 100% of concert net proceeds will continue to fund Young Musicians Unite’s two free after-school programs, at The Young Men’s Prep Academy and The Overtown Youth Center, and will also enable the organization to expand into a third program at Jose De Diego Middle School.   The new program will include a 15-20 student “Rock Ensemble,” a concept created in the early 1970s by the late Douglas Burris’ of Miami Beach Senior high, which continues to this day.

The event, held Saturday May 14, in The Gleason Room — Backstage at The Filmore, will showcase performances by student rock bands, Jazz combos, and guitar ensembles from across Miami-Dade County.  Student ensembles are looking forward to showcasing their talent and efforts of their hard work and dedication throughout the year.
