Lovers of great Irish whiskey and the Boston Red Sox (or visiting teams) are in luck this year, with the arrival of Tullamore D.E.W. as the official whiskey of the Boston Red Sox,  now being poured at the recently unveiled Tully Tavern.

About Tully Tavern:

Located in the Right Field Grandstand section, the 2,450 square feet bar features a magnificent view where fans can gather to cheer on the Sox while enjoying the convivial atmosphere of a good Irish pub. Created with the look and feel of the legendary Irish whiskey distillery, Tully Tavern will give ticket holders the opportunity to enjoy Tullamore D.E.W., a triple-blended, triple distilled Irish whiskey in signature cocktails such as the Monster Mule.

 

Boston Red Sox

The team from Tullamore D.E.W. kindly hosted us at a game earlier in the week, sharing plenty of delicious, easy-to-drink Monster Mules paired with Fenway’s favorite snacks. We’re whiskey fans in our house, and it’s well-worth noting how smooth Tullamore D.E.W. is, whether mixed in a cocktail or on its own. Fenway can’t pour it on its own because, Boston, but having a bottle on hand at home for a chilly spring/never-ending winter night is definitely a necessity here!

Despite the cold, we warmed up nicely after a couple of Monster Mules! Tully Tavern and Tullamore D.E.W. are great additions to the time-honored Boston ballpark.

Interested in visiting Tully Tavern?

Seats are sold through group sales (http://m.mlb.com/redsox/tickets/group/) and tickets range from $35 to 75 a seat depending on the game.

 

Can’t get to a Red Sox game? You can still enjoy a Monster Mule at home! You’ll find me mixing these up for boat days this summer!

What the world needs now is love. . .

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the past week-and-a-half in despair, rage, disbelief, shaken to the core (and, if I am honest, wanting to shake people by the shoulders until some sense is knocked into them). I still feel that way, but in an effort to shine a little light back into the world am trying to find ways to be a helper. Sharing the below food drive information is a good start, as it’s a delicious initiative to help local women. If I can use this blog to highlight ways we can help and get that information to a few hundred or thousand more people, I think it’s worth keeping around.

Please feel free to spread the word and the love!

“Spread the Love” Food Drive with Bon Me and Rosie’s Place

“Spread the Love” Food Drive with Bon Me and Rosie’s Place

Local Food Truck and Restaurant Company announce Valentine’s Benefit for Women’s Shelter

Bon Me, a food truck and restaurant company, is encouraging customers to “Spread the Love” for Valentine’s Day by holding a food drive at all their locations between February 1 and 13 benefiting Rosie’s Place, the oldest women’s shelter in the country. The food company will be rewarding those who donate with free “Extra Meat” on their entrees.

Bon Me’s mission is to make a positive impact in the communities they call home by providing living wages to their employees and by supporting local organizations.

The company’s commissary is located just blocks away from Rosie’s Place, a women’s shelter located in the South End neighborhood of Boston.

“We feel that as a successful local food company, we should find a way to help feed those less fortunate,” said Owner and Co-Founder Patrick Lynch.

“We are very thankful for the ability to give back to Rosie’s Place, a historic shelter in our neighborhood.”

Additionally, Bon Me has a proud history of female empowerment within the company, with over 50% of management and supervisors being female. Rosie’s Place makes a logical recipient for a local food drive.

The list of acceptable donation items are as follows:

Canned fruit (no added sugars), Canned vegetables (low sodium), Canned soups, stews, sauces (low sodium), Canned tuna and chicken in water, Dry beans, Peanut butter, Brown rice, Whole wheat pasta, Oatmeal packets, Cereal (corn flakes, Cheerios, Special K, Raisin Bran), Granola, 100% juice, Shelf-stable milk.

Customers who wish to donate food and receive free “Extra Meat” on their order are able to do so at any Bon Me location, truck or restaurant, between February 1 and 13.

All donations will be delivered to Rosie’s Place in the week following.

Being a Boston food and travel blogger as well as  a publicist/social media consultant has always been an interesting combo for me. It’s definitely helped me to grow my circle of blogger friends and contacts, allowed me to stay in the loop on local media and events, and it’s helped me craft how I want to interact with (and how I DON’T want to interact) other bloggers.

It’s always fun when the two come together in one place, and on Monday that’s exactly what happened. A bunch of Boston bloggers came together at the Olive Connection Brookline ( client of mine since summer 2015) to taste Nautical Gin cocktails and an array of wines that a colleague of mine works with.

Olive Connection Brookline

The event was a casual get-together that allowed bloggers to check out the beautiful gift items that the Olive Connection has for the holidays and to mingle in a festive setting. It was fun!

cheese and charcuterie

Olive Connection is a beautiful store offering so many different artisan food items like charcuterie, pastas, sauces, coffee, tea, and of course olives, olive oil, and vinegar,

And my favorite, brownies made with their blood orange olive oil.

Nautical Gin was on hand with their beautiful bottles of craft American gin, making their signature Gimlet cocktail as well as a festive Gin and Jam cocktail made with local Doves and Figs jam.

Thank you to all of the Boston bloggers who attended and to our hosts the Olive Connection, the wineries, and of course Nautical Gin for the cocktail gin-spiration.
