November 13, 2017

by Gables Foundation

The 9th Annual Tour of Kitchens presented by Infiniti of Coral Gables is a self-guided tour of Coral Gables’ most impressive private residence kitchens. You’ll be inspired as you go inside Coral Gables’ most exquisite kitchens, indulge in the finest gourmet samplings and desserts from the City’s best restaurants and caterers, and shop home goods from your favorite local merchants!

The Coral Gables Community Foundation is proud to originate one of Coral Gables’ most delightful experiences.

When? Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Why? Proceeds benefit the Coral Gables Community Foundation and the Culinary Arts Fund, which provides support and scholarships for the Culinary Arts Program at Coral Gables Senior High School.

Where does the Tour start? The Tour begins at 9AM the Opening Event at Infiniti of Coral Gables, located at 2701 S Le Jeune Rd. You will be greeted with coffee, mimosas and gourmet breakfast! There, you will check in to receive your wristband – required to enter each home – and the Tour of Kitchens program booklet – which contains the map and addresses of all the Tour stops.

Free parking is available in the garage above Infiniti of Coral Gables.

When can I start Touring? The opening event/registration begins at 9:00 AM and ends at 11:00 AM. From 10:00 AM – 2:30PM you may begin visiting the kitchen stops in any order you choose. Each stop will contain a decadent food sample from a local restaurant, kitchen-related items for sale and a stunning table-setting display by a local store for dining room inspiration.

Where does the Tour end? After you have experienced the Tour of Kitchens, you are invited to attend the Closing Event at Ferguson Bath Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, located at 4119 Ponce De Leon Blvd, from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM. Here, you will enjoy delicious sweet treats from local dessert bakeries, complimentary champagne, the chance to bid on must-have kitchen items at the silent auction and the opportunity to listen to distinguished designers.

Do I have to print my ticket? Nope! You can check in at the Opening Event at Infiniti of Coral Gables with your email confirmation or just your name. You will then receive your wristband. It is important to keep your wristband on all day as you will not be granted entry into any of the stops or the Closing Event without your wristband.

Is transportation provided for the Tour? It is a self-guided tour, therefore you are responsible for your own transportation. A VIP Limo Experience is available, which includes 10% off any Majestic Limousines vehicle with a driver and a complimentary bottle of champagne. Contact Majestic Limos at 305-774-0117 or majesticlimos.com. You are also welcome to bike to the locations with Bike Walk Coral Gables. For more information, contact Debbie at 786-529-7180 or bikewalkcoralgables@gmail.com.

Where do I park? Free parking is available at Infiniti of Coral Gables for the Opening Event. You are permitted to park on the swales surrounding the homes and stops on the Tour. We ask that all guests kindly refrain from parking in neighbors’ private property. There is metered parking at Ferguson for the Closing Event and for the stop at Miele- both on Ponce de Leon Blvd.

Do I have to see all the homes? No. You may see as many homes as you wish between the hours of 10:00 AM and 2:30 PM.

Do I have to stay with a group? No. You are free to tour the homes in any order you choose as the Tour is self-guided. You can take the Tour with whoever you like!

Do I have to attend the Closing Event? No, but you will be missing out on sweet treats, champagne and the chance to bid on amazing silent auction items if you don’t!

What is the hashtag for the event? #TOK2018
