Ultimate Tailgate Party | Sunday, November 5, 2023
SoWa Power Station, South Boston | 6 – 9 PM

Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ Ultimate Tailgate Party returns this year on Sunday, November 5 to a brand new venue: The SoWa Power Station. Our annual fundraiser will be the biggest yet, bringing together 25+ of the area’s best restaurants and bars, and some of the culinary professionals, drink experts, and restaurateurs behind them, for an evening of tailgate-inspired food and beverages!

Between all-you-can-enjoy bites, guests will have the opportunity to bid in our silent auction with one-of-a-kind experiences, support our work through our signature Grocery Bag Wall, and partake in interactive experiences to help you learn more about Spoonfuls.

We’re excited to welcome back Andrew Zimmern, Emmy® and four-time James Beard Award-winning TV personality, chef, writer, social justice advocate, and Spoonfuls’ Culinary Board Member, as this year’s emcee.
