Athleticism is more than leaping over a hurdle and drop-kicking a computer after it beats you in chess. Celebrate athletic excellence with this GrouponLive deal: for $34, you get admission for two (a $68.50 value) to the Season Opener Event Hosted by Mario Chalmers at the Hilton Miami Downtown on Sunday, November 18, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Inside the bright, breezily elegant Hilton Miami Downtown, Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers takes the stage to celebrate the Heat's 2012 NBA title and toast the beginning of their 2012–13 campaign. Cocktails fused with tequila, Status Vodka, and Yaya wines fuel enthusiastic recollection of memorable moments from the team's championship run, such as LeBron James's many virtuoso plays down the stretch and his breathtaking Gatorade-drinking form. In concert with the Hilton's catering department, celebrity chef and food-truck artiste Robyn Almodovar—a contestant on Hell's Kitchen—will prepare hors d'oeuvres for guests as they enjoy music from DJ Isaac Icecold and demurely gawk at a red-carpet procession complete with Chalmers’s fellow Heat players and other celebrities.
In addition to the star-studded festivities, aestheticians from Blo Midtown will offer ladies pampering treatments throughout the event, and guests can commemorate their evening with the champions by posing for a picture in the CapturePod photo booth. Cocktail attire is required, so guests will have to leave at home their Dwyane Wade jerseys or the lucky pair of jean shorts they wore throughout last season's playoffs.
