Taste of the South End 2014

Taste of the South EndYesterday The AIDS Action Committee hosted their annual fundraiser and tasting, The Taste of the South End.  This casual, fun event which draws heavily from South End residents and local foodies never fails to entertain and provides everyone a chance to interact with some of Boston’s most recognizable chefs.  Thank you to everyone who was nice enough to pose, the participating restaurants andto AIDS Action for making this one of my favorite events to attend each year.

World AIDS Day

AIDSI’m still traveling in Brazil, but I wanted to remind everyone that today is World AIDS Day.


The AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts is the largest AIDS Service Organization in New England and they are always looking for volunteers and donations.  Interested? You may learn more about how to get involved or to make a donation by visiting here.

Here is a slightly naughty video that a blogger buddy of mine helped create that you might like.  Stay safe, stay healthy guys.

ARTcetera 2013

AIDS Action CommitteeThanks to the generosity of my firm, I’m able to attend ARTcetera 2013 tonight in Boston. The funds from this event go to support The AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. The event includes approximately 200 objects of art that may be bid upon in both silent and live auctions. It is an absolute blast, attracting an eclectic mix of art enthusiasts, artists, and supporters of the AIDS Action Committee.  I’ve included a quick video from the last event that was held in 2011 to give you an idea of what one may expect from tonight’s program.

Farm & Fable to open in South End

Farm and FableFarm & Fable, a vintage cookbook kitchen shop that has space to host cooking demonstrations and classes, will open a new retail space on the corner of Shawmut Avenue and Milford Street across from Coppa Boston in the South End.

I’m relieved to see this space will be home to a new retail shop.  With Formaggio and the Syrian Market just across the street and a number of cafes, restaurants and other retailers on this block I hope there will be sufficient foot traffic for this specialty shop.

Chandler Street Block Party tomorrow

Chandler Street Block PartyFollowing Boston’s Pride parade tomorrow,  the annual Chandler Street Block Party will open.  This is not an official Boston Pride event and competes with the Pride Festival in Government Center that includes Berkeley Music duo Karmin.

Hopefully the annual Street Dance & Block Party will have resolved the issues they had last year with excessive lines and not enough cold beverages.  Proceeds from this event go to benefit The AIDS Action Committee.  The outdoor dance party runs from 1:30pm – 7pm  and has a $15 cover.
