Coconut Grove Chamber news

The Coconut Grove Chamber of Commerce, has almost completed their move across the street from their former office at the Glass House. They are next to Peacock Garden Cafe on McFarlane Road. There should be a person at the office daily helping tourists and handing out brochures, etc. I do think that the new space is better as there is more traffic on that side of the street and they can engage with people easier.

The Chamber made out big from the Great Taste of the Grove last month, while it's true that they were rained out from a deluge of rain the first day, Saturday, someone was smart enough to get rain insurance since it seems that they are always rained out. That being done to the cost of $3000 a day, they were able to collect $75,000 just from that one day of rain. They actually give out the insurance by the rain fall. Peacock Park was saturated and the Chamber bought insurance for a minimum of 3/4" inches of rain.


The next Chamber luncheon is being held on Friday, June 21 at the Sonesta Bayfront Hotel (2889 McFarlane Road)  from noon to 2 pm.

The featured speaker will be David Martin, COO of Terra Group, the company behind two high-profile condominium developments coming to Coconut Grove – The Grove at Grand Bay and a second project on the Coconut Grove Bank property.

Also, State Rep. Jose Javier Rodriquez and Senator Gwen Margolis will be giving a proclamation to Monty Trainer to celebrate 50 years of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival.


Please RSVP for the luncheon to GroveChamber@coconutgrove.com or call 305-444-7270.
