Friends! As you may have seen on Twitter and Facebook, I’ve been seriously talking up this year’s Taste of the Nation Boston, which is coming up soon on April 14th. In all transparency, like last year, I am volunteering again this year as one of the PR chairs, but I can assure you that it is an event that’s more than worthwhile – and there are plenty of other Boston bloggers who’ll tell you the same.
If you’re unfamiliar, Taste of the Nation is a culinary event in which the city’s finest chefs and restaurants participate with the goal of ending childhood hunger, including Andy Husbands of Tremont 647 and the last season of Hells Kitchen, Jody Adams of Rialto, and Richard Garcia, the new executive chef at 606 Congress at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel. In addition to some amazing food, there will be 100 different varietals of wine and a variety of cocktails prepared by some of Boston’s premiere mixologists.
All ticket sales go toward raising the critical funds needed to support Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger in Boston and across the nation by 2015.
And there’s good news! Before 3.31.11 you can purchase tickets at a 20 percent discount! Just visit www.strength.org/boston and enter MM2011 in the discount code.
And if you’re not in Boston, definitely find out if there is an upcoming event in your city.
