The journey for soccer fans will begin when they enter Brightline’s stations which will be decorated from the countries that will be playing in the final game. While on board, riders will get the chance to jam to live music, get their face painted, and quench their thirst with specialty themed cocktails and different samplings. Themed brand ambassadors and giveaways will also be taking place.
“Next to the stadium in Russia itself, I cannot think of a more exciting place to watch the World Cup than Miami and specifically Wynwood, which has completely embraced this year’s tournament,” shared Johanna Rojas, vice president of marketing for Brightline. “We are thrilled to collaborate on this partnership and offer Palm Beach and Broward residents an effortless way to experience Sunday’s final with the international energy of Miami.”
PA Grill on US 1 is our "go to" place for Friday lunch, where Jaime takes good care of us. Today she even brought us pickles that included this one chip that was apparently happy it was Friday. TGIF everybody!
