April may bring showers, but it also brought a fun customer appreciation event at the new state-of-the-art Braman BMW of Jupiter dealership.
The evening began with valet parking, which was a bit jammed-up, then a cool flute of champagne and smiles completed our welcome.
So, let's break it down:
The new general manager, Tony Giodano, and his crew mingled and chatted with the guests about how the new digs are: 56 percent larger with a 39 percent larger showroom. There are 50 percent more bays, and the service shop is air conditioned.
Sounds good to us.
However, the event was not just about the stats or looking at the great new autos.
No, it was an evening of fun and great entertainment.
The musical duo, LucaBella, provided perfect background music for enjoying the new atmosphere.
Actually, they were so entertaining we took time to just listen, watch and appreciate their talent. Braman should definitely keep them on the list for future events.
Also on hand were Celine Pelofi, Ms. United States, who was wearing her crown, busy greeting guests and having her photo made. She was very, very nice.
Variety is always the spice-of-life they say, so from music to the Mentalist, Mike Mooney, the evening was filled with variety.
As always, Braman holds nothing back in the hospitality department. The wide variety of hors d'oeuvres on hand included Nantucket and brie panini, crab meat stuffed mushrooms and chicken roulade.
Cocktails, water and soft drinks were in abundance.
Congratulations on the facility.
The official Grand Opening will be later this year, but you don't have to wait until then to pop in.
As I said, the Braman folks are consummate hosts. Find them at 1555 W. Indiantown Rd.
