The event will take place the first Friday of every month from November through March 2011 and will allow pedestrians to stroll freely Restaurant Row under the stars.

Ten Downtown Coral Gables restaurants and bars will extend their dining rooms onto the street in a celebration of the event’s culinary options. The 100 block of Giralda Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic so that Giralda Under the Stars’ participating restaurants and bars may fill the street with tables and chairs as well as live music and entertainers.
