Diner’s Agenda needs to go do holiday shopping.
Saturday, December 1
•It’s World AIDS Day on Saturday! In recognition, nine local restaurants, including Avila and No. 9 Park, will be offering special menus and items, the proceeds from which will go to the AIDS Action Committee. It’s a good cause, so make your reservation! [AIDS Action Committee]
•Due to the fact that we have no impulse control whatsoever, we have never successfully completed the making of a gingerbread house. It’s too bad, because it sounds like a lot of fun! 75 Chestnut will be hosting a Gingerbread House Party from 12pm-3pm, featuring all the fixings for decorating as well as a menu of special holiday treats. Call (617) 227-2175 to reserve your house. [75 Chestnut]
•The Rodman Ride for Kids is a charity that promotes children’s health, so it only makes sense that their fundraiser provides a perfect excuse to stuff your face with food from Boston’s top chefs like Marc Orfaly from Pigalle. The Celebration for Kids starts at 6:00 at the Seaport World Trade Center. Tickets, which cost $150, may be purchased online. [Celebration for Kids]
