Join Paula Deen and her two sons, Jamie and Bobby Deen as they host Moët Hennessy’s The Q. More than 40 of the top BBQ chefs from across the country will grill up chicken, ribs, brisket and pork butts from Omaha Steaks with smoky side dishes. These fabulous BBQ dishes will be paired with cocktail creations from the Moët Hennessy portfolio featuring Belvedere Vodka, Hennessy VS Cognac, Grand Marnier Liqueur and 10 Cane Rum.

And since no party is complete without the AFTER party, Miami nightlife comes to the beach as Moët Hennessy presents the Q After Dark. Guests will be regaled by a magnificent theatrical performance that will amaze and delight while they enjoy flutes of champagne from the official sponsor Moët & Chandon as well as dazzling concoctions from Belvedere Vodka, Hennessy Cognac, Grand Marnier and 10 Cane rum. Hosted by one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive and host of Top Chef Masters and Around The World in 80 Plates, Australian Celebrity Chef Curtis Stone will serve some of his favorite ‘barbie’ entrees from the ‘Land Of Plenty.’ Be sure not to miss this party under and WITH the stars!
