Southern Stars Section celebrated the holidays at Midtown Table in Jacksonville, FL!

MBCA Members joined us at (Medure Brothers' Culinary Concepts) Midtown Table in December 2023 for our annual Holiday Brunch. We celebrated members by presenting certificates of appreciation and anniversary years with MBCA! We also gave out several gift cards, thanks to our local sponsors! We also hosted a white elephant game, where some comical gifts were exchanged, and everyone had a few laughs as we broke bread! Midtown Table is a perennial favorite of ours, always wonderful to work with. Our Members always rave about the quality of food, attention to detail, and wonderful service! Thank you to everyone who attended, and to Midtown Table for hosting us again!

The weather was great, and we able to dine outside on the covered patio and get some fresh air while having yard games, a putting green, and fire pits around us to create a wonderful ambiance. Midtown Table is located on Gate Pkwy near the St. John's Town Center just south of Butler Blvd. It is the latest venture in the Medure Brothers' portfolio, serving Italian-inspired lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, and craft cocktails.

We look forward to seeing you at the next Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville, held monthly on the second Saturday!

Beginning around 7:00 am, Southern Stars Section leadership will assemble in the “Central Lot” at Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville to prepare for the event starting at 8:00 a.m. and welcome fellow Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. Aim for gate #3, to the slight left of the “Exotics Lot” if approaching from the Southside Blvd main entrance. We are typically in front of the “Furniture Source” storefront (formerly Sears) at the end of the mall, near the parking garages.

Vehicles that cannot remain in the Central Lot from 8-11 a.m. are asked to park in the Exhibit Lot for easier entry and departure, and pedestrian safety.

Chick-fil-A and restrooms in the Avenues Mall food court will open early for Caffeine and Octane attendees at 7:30 am. (Yes, they serve coffee!)

From Caffeine and Octane Jax ( “If you’re displaying your vehicle, and you hope to be in the Central Lot, we suggest that you arrive by 7 am, at the latest.”
