Months ago, I featured a fantastic organization here on A Boston Food Diary- Lovin' Spoonfuls. As you may recall their mission is in food rescue- picking up pounds upon pounds of "unwanted" food from local grocery stores and restaurants and delivering it to shelters in the area. It is amazing work that founder Ashley Stanley is doing, and I continue to be in awe of her efforts with every food drive she runs, and the deliveries she blesses the shelters with. It is truly outstanding.
Of course, I'm not hear to wax on, again, about how amazing I think Lovin' Spoonfuls is. I am here to let you all know about a great way that you can help them, and have a blast at the same time!
Brookline houses an amazing little restaurant, committed to the freshest seafood, called Lineage. You may be acquainted with the owner/executive chef Jeremy Sewall from his work at both Eastern Standard as well as the new and great Island Creek Oyster Bar. Lineage is celebrating a big birthday this year- they are turning 5! To celebrate this momentous occasion, they are throwing one heck of a party on February 28th, featuring Island Creek Oysters, Lobster Tacos (you can bet that lobster meat is fresh caught the morning of the party-that's just how Sewall does it), Wood Fired Pizzas, Butterscotch Pudding, Signature Cocktails and Beer & Wine. Tickets to this event are $50.00 per person, and all proceeds go to directly to Lovin' Spoonfuls.
One great night- amazing food, a wonderful celebration, and giving back to an incredible organization who does beyond amazing work-I cannot think of a better way to spend a Monday night.
