"..won’t satisfy everyone’s tastes and wants. It is too small to do that and too smart to try." Boston Globe

Chili for a good cause

Tonight took us to foreign land: Fanueil Hall in Boston, but for a very good cause.  For Bostonians and Cantabrigians, Fanueil Hall isn’t someplace we visit often.  From a historic and architectural standpoint, we love it and it’s worth a visit.

We went across the Charles for the third annual Chili Cup with the battle including Ned Devine’s, The Harp, Game On!, Dillon’s, Church, The Greatest Bar, Cask n’ Flagon, Anthem Kitchen + Bar, Flat Iron Tapas Bar & Lounge, Porters Bar and Grill, The North Star, Mija Cantina & Tequila Bar, The Grand Canal, the culinary team from Community Work Services, and Joe Sent Me.  Congrats to Flat Iron Tapas Bar & Lounge for their win!

All proceeds benefited Community Work Services, a nonprofit organization formed in 1877 which helps people find employment through job training and support.  CWS has an At Your Service training program which focuses on the hotel industry.  We’re hired several AYS graduates at Hotel Veritas which has been life-changing for them and incredibly rewarding for us.  I sit on the Board of CWS, so I am a bit biased – but still, I love a good bowl of chili.
