The Estefans throw grand reopening party for Larios on the Beach


Rain or shine, the Estefans know how to throw a great party.

The weather didn’t behave for the Larios on the Beach grand reopening Thursday night, but inside the newly glitzed-up Ocean Drive spot guests were in a great mood. Attendees sipped on freshly made mojitos and nibbled on hors d’oeuvres of pulled pork, conch fritters, fried meatballs and veggies served with a cilantro aioli.

Owner Emilio Estefan entered in a gray suit and big smile. A little later on, wife Gloria arrived in a sexy red dress and perfectly coiffed hair (how she keeps it so straight and perfect in a rainstorm is a good question).

Tree hugger

Haulover Beach Park just got a little more fashionable.

Ecofriendly designer Stella McCartney — daughter of cute Beatle Paul McCartney — contributed 30 trees to the dog park as part of the community program Million Trees Miami. The tree-planting ceremony went down Friday morning, though Stella, who lives in London; was unable to attend; staffers from her namesake store at Bal Harbour Shops were on hand.

“We are proud of Ms. McCartney’s commitment,” said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez at the event. “As a business owner, she is demonstrating her community stewardship by increasing shade and beautifying our parks, contributing to something we can all enjoy.”

Selfie op

Table reservations: 305-904-5909.
