Foodies Will Love JA World Uncorked

Each January, JA World is filled with the aroma of delicious gourmet bites from South Florida's best restaurants. The sound of glasses clinking in toasts echoes from one beautifully transformed JA BizTown to the other as close to 1,000 friends enjoy tasting  Breakthru Beverage Florida's finest wines and liquors.

Tickets to JA World Uncorked sell out every year because this night is simply like no other. Cheers to the chefs, restaurants and beverage providers that help create an unforgettable experience! Here is a sneak peek of who is joining us for the party on January 19th. Stay tuned for more exciting partner announcements in the upcoming weeks!
