The Beach Channel’s ‘Taste of the Beach’ leaves a good aftertaste

The Beach Channel’s First Annual Taste of the Beach & End of Summer Block Party took place September 29th and 30th in the beautiful and prestigious beachside setting of Collins Park, Miami Beach, where advertisers, local businesses and community friends enjoyed a memorable and affordable taste of food and fun. With picture perfect Miami Beach weather, this tasty treat filled two-day event welcomed a successful turnout of over 1000 attendees each day to experience a diverse selection of premium quality mini-meal size tastings from the kitchens of Ola, Mixtura, Maxine’s Bistro, Kung fu Kitchen, Bolivar, Haven, Fix, Thali Indian Cuisine, Shake Shack, Pan Fiore, Shorty’s BBQ, Savvylicious Sweets, Edible Arrangements, Neuhauser Au Bon Pan, Wing Spot, Crepemaker, Costco, Dannon, Publix, and even four legged friends were welcomed with gourmet tastings by Prime K9 Cuisine while everyone enjoying the music and lounge setting sponsored by The Catalina Hotel.

In April 2012, The Beach Channel celebrated 3 years as a privately owned and operated local TV Channel that reaches over 250,000 viewers by way of the Atlantic Broadband cable network. The Beach Channel recently integrated Hotwire Communications, a fiber-optic cable service adding an additional 20,000 viewers and reaching new communities in Miami, Boca Raton, and Fort Meyers Beach. “We are always seeking opportunity to expand our viewer reach and provide added value to our advertisers”, says Randy Kassewitz, Managing Partner of The Beach Channel.

Taste of the Beach was conceptualized early this year to give The Beach Channel advertisers and local organizations an effective high profile venue to promote, sample, and interact directly with our community and friends. With the immediate support of the Collins Park Neighborhood Association, Atlantic Broadband, Boucher Brothers, Cervera Real Estate, and the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce, this was definitely accomplished and The Beach Channels’ Taste of the Beach is being recognized and looked forward to within the community as an annual event that you don’t want to miss The Beach Channel proudly supports the Miami Beach Community and is an active Pillar Member of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce.
