Two weeks ago today, the Boston area police departments with the help of the FBI and other government agencies shut down our bustling metropolis to find the men who poked the wrong sleeping giant. While the city has slowly regained its flow and businesses on Boylston are back in business, celebrity chefs Ken Oringer and Ming Tsai have been plotting their own comeback. Boston Bites Back will be held on May 15th at the historic Fenway Park with over 100 chefs participating.
Boston favorites like Flour Bakery, Eastern Standard, Hungry Mother, Coppa and Summer Shack will all be represented by their finest culinary masters. Tiffany Faisson of Top Chef and Sweet Cheeks and Mario Batali will also be in attendance serving up delicious BBQ and classic Italian cuisine. General admission tickets will be sold for $200. This grants patrons to the Big Concourse to sample food from all the chefs along with beer, wine and soft drinks. Guests are invited to sit in the stands, enjoy all the amenities of the Budweiser deck and even walk out to the warming tracks! VIP tickets will be sold for $1000 and includes exclusive menus from Ming and Ken themselves as well as top shelf wine and liquor and a private party in the EMC Club. This event is for adults 21 and over only and tickets can be purchased online.
If you can't make it to Fenway Park on the 15th, maybe you can head over to the TD Garden on May 30th? The Boston Strong Benefit Concert will also attempt to raise money for the One Fund. Headliners such as Aerosmith, New Kids On The Block, Jason Aldene, James Taylor and comedians Dane cooks and Steven Wright will be joined by many others for one night of music magic. Tickets will go on sale Monday, May 6th on Ticketmaster and LiveNation. They are priced between $35-$285. To ensure that all money raised goes directly to the One Fund, only tickets purchased on the two sites mentioned will be allowed in. Ticket holders must have a valid form of government issued ID and the credit card used to purchase the ticket to gain entrance.
Nights like these are certainly ones to remember, and also ones to tire you out! Stay with us at our boutique bed and breakfast in the South End neighborhood and share all your stories and adventures with us over breakfast the next morning. That is, if you can wake up from the deep food and music induced comas!
