Art and Intrigue at MOCA’S Mystery Dates & Sofia Joelsson's Dinner

On Saturday, November 12, 2011, patrons of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s MYSTERY DATES enjoyed an evening of art and intrigue as they attended glamorous dinner parties in the private homes of some of Miami’s most inspired hosts. The mystery is that guests learned only that evening which dinner they would attend on the night of the big event.

The excitement began with a festive cocktail party at MOCA (770 NE 125th Street in North Miami) where guests discovered their next stop for the evening. Mystery Dates hosts were a mix of creative business professionals and entrepreneurs, all of whom share a passion for contemporary art and a love of entertaining.

Settings included a contemporary glass house in Coconut Grove, an elegant ocean side villa on Golden Beach, an industrial loft in Wynwood, a MiMO house in Morningside, a stunning home on Pinetree Drive and a breathtaking South Beach penthouse recently designed by our client Sofia Joelsson, principal of Sojo Design. Sofia hosted a wonderful dinner at the 8,000 sqf ocean front rooftop terrace for over 20 guests who were serenated by a violin player while enjoying a delightful menu. After the dinner everyone moved down to the main living room where Sofia and other guests entertained the crowd playing the magnificent white grand piano, before heading to the after party at The Setai.
