Upcoming Boston Events

I realized the other day that I write about most of the Boston food and wine events I attend after I attend them which is not helpful for people might want to also attend.

Here are a few events I am either planning on attending or have attended in the past. If you have any questions about them, please let me know!

Taste of the South End

March 8, Boston Center for the Arts

If you were reading this blog last March, you might remember my review of Taste of the South End. I was a volunteer at the event, but in a pretty sweet setup, volunteers got to taste food on breaks. It was amazing, fun, and felt really good to be involved in such a good cause. Taste of the South End benefits Aids Action Committee of MA and brings together the South End’s best, restaurants like Myers + Chang, Petit Robert Bistro,      B & G Oyster, and Picco among MANY others.

Spoonful of Ginger

March 28, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

I remember the day the Spoonful of Ginger event happened last year very clearly because tweets were flying all over the Twitter-verse about it, and I was quite jealous I wasn’t in attendance. Spoonful of Ginger benefits the Joslin Diabetes Center and its Asian American Diabetes Initiative. Diabetes is such an awful disease, and I am excited to support this event. Chefs like Joanne Chang and Jasper White will be cooking up tastes for attendees, so you know it will be a delicious time for a good cause!

Share our Strength’s Taste of the Nation

April 14, Hynes Convention Center

According to the Share our Strength website: Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® is the nation’s premier culinary benefit, featuring top chefs and mixologists — all of whom are coming together to donate their time, talent and passion to end childhood hunger in America.

I also remember reading blog posts and tweets about this last year and wishing I had gone. The food looked absolutely amazing, and ending childhood hunger is definitely something that we can all get behind.

Do you have any events like these you are looking forward to in the coming months? Feel free to share links!

    We’re really excited about the upcoming Chocolate Madness event by NARAL at the Cyclorama on Tuesday, April 26. I think this might be our 5th or 6th year in attendance. Downside, the mailing list you get put on, upside, chocolate desserts from every prominent kitchen in town. Tickets are $35 until the week before, I think.

      I am going to be out of town for Taste of the South End, but it was a lot of fun last year. I haven’t looked in to Taste of the Nation yet, but I am hoping to attend/volunteer in some capacity! I follow them on Twitter, so I will ask!

      Taste of the Nation was the best foodie event I’ve ever attended. Ever. I will definitely be going this year (we’re recruiting all of our friends, actually). The other 2 sounds really awesome too!

        I am actually doing another post on Taste of the Nation later in the week, in conjunction with some other bloggers. We are very excited and more than happy to promote such a great event!
