Miami Heat

| September 26, 2012 | Parties National

Folks like to say that summer in Miami is slow and languid. Not this one. Record heat only made the social calendar busier... At the Fontainebleau more than 3,000 fans turned up for the iHeart Ultimate Pool Party, a weekend of sun-soaked days and balmy nights with live performances by the likes of Maroon 5, Gym Class Heroes and Travie McCoy… The mood was also hot and steamy at the 2012 IRIE Weekend, the yearly charity event chaired by Miami’s foremost DJ. In between golf tournaments and concerts, Irie was given a proclamation to the city by Mayor Carlos Gimenez as friends like Alonzo Mourning, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade looked on… Over in South Beach, Oakley’s Learn to Ride at the Muscle Milk Fitness Retreat was all about surfing. Ballroom diva Karina Smirnoff traded her dancing shoes for a paddleboard as she rode the waves with surfing pros Erica Hosseini and Noelle Kozak… And leave it to a reality TV queen to bring out the crowds on a sultry Friday night. Kim Kardashian hosted the Midori Beachside Bash at the Delano, where a gaggle of models demonstrated “Kim’s easy summer styling tips.” We know what you’re thinking: Only in Miami.
