Former Patriots lineman Matt Light and Mayor Tom Menino were just a few of the VIPs at this weekend’s Ultimate Tailgate Party benefiting Lovin’ Spoonfuls. (The organization recovers and distributes healthy, perishable food to community organizations.) Held on the lawn at Sam’s overlooking Boston Harbor, the event hosted by Sam’s co-owners Esti and Drew Parsons featured some serious food prepared by some of the city’s finest chefs, including Jamie Bissonnette of Coppa and Toro (above right, with Light).
