Between March and October, Boston seems to go mad for “Taste Of…” events. They range from the big (Taste of The Nation: Boston) to small (Taste of Allston Village), but one of the most consistently excellent is the annual Taste of the South End, happening tonight from 6pm-9pm at the Boston Center for the Arts. The event benefits the AIDS Action Committee and features no less than 45 of the ‘hood’s best restaurants, bars, and coffee shops, including hot spots like Hamersley’s Bistro and Myers + Chang.
Tickets are not inexpensive: general admission is $95 and if you want to attend the VIP reception at 6pm, the evening will run you a cool $250. That is still, however, quite likely less than you’d pay for all the food you’ll be eating at the restaurants themselves and besides that, it’s for charity. So what are you waiting for? Buy your tickets now!
