We are thrilled to have several events coming up! We hope you will be able to join us and lend your support to Lovin’ Spoonfuls this year.

Cocktails for #TEAMSPOONFULS

We’re excited to have Tito’s Handmade Vodka and the local restaurant community supporting our 2019 Boston Marathon runners! Now through Marathon Monday (April 15), these bars and restaurants will be serving special cocktails on their menus and donating partial proceeds to our marathon team.

Chefs’ Table: April 3

This first annual, exclusive event brings together 200 guests for a unique culinary experience presented by 5 all-star chefs and our catering partner. The evening features a festive cocktail hour with food by Chef Joshua Smith of New England Charcuterie followed by a seated dinner, during which each chef will serve a custom dinner to two tables only. A personal keynote by restaurateur and Culinary Board Member Christopher Myers, who will share his personal story with hunger, and his path into high-end hospitality in Los Angeles, New York, and Boston, as well as his work in philanthropy, will ground the evening’s remarks. A live auction will complement the delicious dinner and wine pairings, all to benefit Lovin’ Spoonfuls.

  • Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2019
  • Time: 6-10pm (cocktail hour 6-7pm + seated dinner 7-10pm)
  • Location: Drydock Hall at 19 Drydock Avenue within the Innovation and Design Building, Boston

Mary Madness: April 6

The annual event takes place at Bambara and includes a bracket-style competition from 1-3pm during which local bartenders will get creative and serve four-ounce pours of their best Bloody Mary made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Guests are invited to sample each drink and vote for their favorite on a bracket-style sheet while snacking on brunch appetizers. Guests will also enjoy game-day classics, including sliders, croque madame, and pork belly bao buns. Proceeds from the event will benefit Lovin’ Spoonfuls.
