Guitars Over Guns

Published July 6th, 2017 by Sstahl

We know you love the freshness of our ingredients, how we use wild caught fish in our dishes and how all of our recipes are made fresh daily – but aside from great food, you want to know what’s really certified awesome – giving back to the community.

That’s why we partnered with the Miami local organization, Guitars Over Guns. This awesome group is dedicated to providing mentorship to at-risk youth through music and arts education as an alternative to the negative influences that typically dominate their environments.

You want to know what really has us #mindblown? Recent evaluations indicate that more than 90% of Guitars Over Guns after-school students have improved their academic performance, overall conduct and decision-making skills since participating in the program!

If that all wasn’t saucy enough for you, this organization runs a program called R.I.S.E., meant to Reach, Inspire, Support, and Empower like-minded Miamians with each other and their community.

And that’s where we come in.

On Thursday, June 22 we hosted the first GOGO R.I.S.E. Happy Hour at our SuViche Wynwood location where talented Guitars over Guns musicians performed for our guests. Guests received and array of light appetizers and complimentary cocktails, while student performers enjoyed a tasty dinner on the house!

In continued support of the organization, we will host Guitars Over Guns students and alumni for performances at upcoming Happy Hours. This partnership is part of our mission to support local artists by building creative partnerships and helping to promote their art through our restaurants.

We can’t wait to see where this mindblowing partnership takes us!

Any organizations out there we should know about that are making our community a saucier place to live? Drop us a line to let us know! (link to email)
