Rumors of a massive Superbowl party in a Miami mansion have been shut down, after city officials got wind of the rager, which promised spinning DJs, an open bar and dancing women for a $500 cover, according to the Miami Herald. It is illegal to charge a cover for an event in a private home in Miami. But who owns or is responsible for the eight-bedroom, seven-bathroom spread at 6360 North Bay Road is unclear. According to Miami Beach attorney Jaime Rubinson, the house sold last week. The last documented owner, according to public records, was Marvin Ceder, but Ceder told the Herald that he sold the home. 

The Multiple Listing Service shows that the home was listed twice late last year for different prices and with different agents. Sue Honowitz of Golden Beach Real Estate listed the house for $5 million and on the same day, another real estate agent, Eric Pearl, listed the house for $7.9 million.

“There is no contract to rent this house with the current or prior owner nor will there be any ‘house party,’ ” Rubinson wrote to the city. “If there is anyone on the premises, they are there illegally and the police should be called.”
It appears that a broker may have planned the party, but a man named Watson James called the Herald Thursday to say the event had been canceled. Tickets are no longer available online. [Miami Herald]Christopher Cameron
