We had the pleasure of dining with 24 influential Orlandoans this past Sunday, celebrating the launch of Red Bull's new Summer Edition kiwi flavor. It was an honor to be surrounded by so many integral members of our community who are passionate about this city and work hard each day to make it a truly beautiful place to live.
Tucked away on Lake Formosa, our guests arrived at the Loch Haven Neighborhood Center to enjoy an intimate dining experience with other local Orlando influencers. Red Bull cocktails paired with Tito's Vodka were served, as well as a delicious 4-course meal prepared by Em's Neighborhood Kitchen and dessert by Honey + Clover Pastry.
All of the tabletops were gorgeous thanks to the kiwi-inspired floral arrangements by In Bloom Florist. We loved transforming this venue into a fun, brightly colored summertime scene.
We started with a cocktail hour and hors d'oeuvre before taking our seats around the dinner table. We loved that every course was refreshing with a unique twist of kiwi. Each table had one of our very own TDPP guest hosts to keep the conversation flowing with fun, stimulating questions.
For the main course, we enjoyed a Sweet BBQ Braised Brisket served with a savory kiwi sauce, coleslaw and smashed potatoes.
We finished the evening with an AMAZING Kiwi Lime Coconut Mousse Bar by Honey + Clover Pastry that was to die for and Red Bull sent everyone home with a Summer Edition gift box full of goodies!
Thank you to Red Bull and everyone who joined us for this special evening! You all have made an impact on this city we love in some capacity, so keep on making Orlando a wonderful place to live. Cheers!
