Here at Grub Street, it goes without saying that we’re very much in favor of hearty dining and drinking … and when it’s for a good cause, all the better! Lucky for us, then, that Think PINK, Drink PINK, Shop PINK, supporting the fight against breast cancer, has kicked off in Harvard Square.
It’s simple: Order certain pink dishes and drinks at various boites throughout the neighborhood, and a portion of the proceeds goes to breast cancer charities like the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Dana Faber, and the Hoffman Breast Center at Mount Auburn Hospital.
Here are some highlights:
Tonight, Harvest will host a “Think PINK” Breast Cancer Review, part of the Harvest Review Tasting Series. You’ll get four courses with wine for $39. Call for reservations.
UpStairs on the Square will serve two specially crafted pink drinks and donate part of the proceeds to the Alice Hoffman Breast Center at Mount Auburn Hospital: Choose between a Flight of Hope, three two-ounce pours of summer roses, or Hits of Sunshine, St. Germaine, cava and raspberry puree in a flute.
You’ll find a “Sally Wu” cocktail (Reyka Vodka, St. Germain, grapefruit, Aperol, bitters and candied rum) on offer at OM. And at Grafton Street, a “Save the Melons” watermelon cocktail made with gin, fresh watermelon purée, basil, lemon juice and simple syrup goes toward the fight.
Ben and Jerry’s has created a custom flavor, Think PINK Strawberry Shortcake frozen yogurt, and they’ll donate $1 for each one sold to the cause.
