11 South End Chefs to Cook at Fenway’s ‘Boston Bites Back’

The Fenway neighborhood will play host to a large-scale fundraising event for the One Fund next week, known as "Boston Bites Back."

Eleven South End chefs will join over 100 top chefs from the Greater Boston and Cambridge area to raise $ 1 million for The One Fund at Fenway Park on Wednesday night, through the culinary event Boston Bites Back

The event is spearheaded by celeb chefs Ken Oringer and Ming Tsai, the Boston Red Sox, Governor Patrick, Mayor Menino, and ARAMARK. The idea is to bring Bostonians together to eat, drink and demonstrate Boston’s unrelenting spirit, while raising money for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, according to organizers.

“BBB is an opportunity for the city to join as one and acknowledge our strength as a community,” said Ken Oringer, owner of Clio, Toro, Copa & Uni. “Nothing speaks more to our collective resolve than an evening of hospitality, unity and hometown pride in one of the most iconic venues in Boston – Fenway Park.”

The event also features an online auction with Boston-centric prizes like throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park, meeting Bill Belichcik, and a special celebrity cookoff right in your own home.  read more

Fenway’s Faithful Return Battered But Not Broken

Boston University students Amelia Cochin, Jackie Mahedy and Holy Cross student Mike Galantini react from Fenway Park after the events of the previous week

 

A man reached out from the stream of people making the trek from Kenmore Station to Fenway Park Saturday morning to shake the hand of a military police officer standing guard.

“God bless you,” he said meaningfully.

The Boston Red Sox would play a game against the Kansas City Royals beginning at 1 p.m. The three-game series against the Royals was supposed to begin Friday night, but the game was postponed while the city was in lockdown mode as a manhunt for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings ensued.

Boston rejoiced after that suspect, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, was arrested in Watertown just before 9 p.m. Friday.

As Kenmore Square awoke Saturday morning there was a feeling of calm amid significantly heightened security.

Boston University students Ameila Cochin and Jackie Mahedy reflected on the week as they sipped iced coffee outside of Dunkin Donuts.

“I’m definitely relieved,” Mahedy, 19, from Wyckoff, N.J. said. “It’s cool seeing people out and about. It’s a little surreal.” read more
