Now that it's finally nice enough to spend over an hour outdoors, here are some restaurant, chef and food events in and around Boston (just in time for tomato season)! Here's what we got coming up in June:
June 5th - Taste of Somerville: Featuring over 30 Somerville restaurants (which I personally have been obsessed with lately) there will be samples of food, wine, beer desserts and more. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. All proceeds will go to RESPOND, Inc, New England's first agency against domestic violence. Find all info and tickets here.
June 10th - Hair Band Beer Brunch at Strip-T's: In a collaboration with High & Mighty Beer, Strip-T's will be serving three courses of food with High & Mighty pairings. It's $30 per person (which is great considering the amount I normally spend on brunch) and reservations are required, call 617-923-4330 to get yours. Seatings will start at 12pm and end at 5pm. Did I mention they will be blasting 80's hair band music the whole time?
June 10th - Boston Food Truck Festival: Located at the UMass Boston Campus Center, all of Boston's food truck fleet will be serving up their signature dishes. The best part is the $30 ticket gets you one portion from every truck, which is way better than paying individually and waiting in line for an hour. Find info and tickets here.
June 12th - Taste of Cambridge: In the 10th installment of this event, over 90 Cambridge restaurants will be participating with samples of food and drink. Located outside (!!) at Sidney Street and University Park Common in Central Square (rain date set for June 14th), tickets are $50 for general admission. Find event and ticket info here.
June 22nd - Chefs in Shorts: Friday night on the Waterfront with all your favorite boston chefs grilling up BBQ, I honestly couldn't think of anything better. Tickets cost $70, which include complimentary beer, wine, and culinary tastings. Find ticket and event information here.
