On Saturday, Sugar Factory American Brasserie in South Beach hosted a meet and greet with Mel B, aka Scary Spice, who walked over to the sweet spot’s Hotel Victor location just after 6 p.m., with rosé in her hand and husband Stephen Belafonte in tow. The two didn’t have too far to walk as they were staying at The Villa, Casa Casuarina, where R&B superstar Chris Brown was also staying. Once she arrived, she was greeted by a group of drag queens dressed as the Spice Girls with whom she posed for pictures. Afterward, the Spice Girl wandered through the candy store like a wide-eyed girl in search of her favorites — gummy bears and chewy sour treats, making sure to get extra for her kids. Later that night, Scary and her husband made an entrance as they walked into LIV at the Fontainebleau.
