Lovin’ Spoonfuls will host the 4th annual Ultimate Tailgate Party on Sunday, November 9th from 7-10pm on the waterfront lawn at Sam’s. The event will feature 16 of Boston’s all-star chefs cooking their favorite tailgate food, a silent auction, entertainment, a photo booth and more. This year’s event is also a celebration of the organization’s upcoming 5th anniversary.
The event will start with a VIP hour, featuring sparkling wine, cheeses and charcuterie. Founding Culinary Board members Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers will be honored during this time for their support of the work Lovin’ Spoonfuls does. A limited number of these tickets are available for $250, which includes a meet and greet with the chefs and a gift bag full of swag. General admission is $100, which includes access to chef tasting stations, signature cocktails, beer and wine. Complimentary valet parking will be available to all.
This year’s chef tastings will include food from Jamie Bissonnette (Coppa and Toro), Michael Scelfo (Alden & Harlow), Asia Mei (Sam’s at Louis Boston), Louis DiBiccari (Tavern Road), Will Gilson (Puritan & Co), Steve Postal (Commonwealth) and Jason Albus (Fairsted Kitchen), among several others.
Since Lovin’ Spoonfuls was founded in 2010, the team has collected more than 1.75 million pounds of fresh food to redistribute to local soup kitchens, homeless shelters and crisis centers throughout Boston at no cost. The money raised from last year’s Ultimate Tailgate Party was put towards getting another truck on the road to redistribute rescued food.
