Restaurateurs in Boston often give diners the chance to do good while eating well at the same time. This Fall is no exception. At Boston Harbor Hotel, for example, the member of Preferred Hotel Group and only Forbes Five-Star waterfront property is helping guests support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.
Take part in three ways to Sip, Swirl and Drink Pink in October, with 10 percent of all proceeds benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Choose your favorite - or participate in all three! The opportunities include:
* Rosé Afternoon Tea at Rowes Wharf Sea Grille- You'll feast on pink decorative pastries that taste as great as they look, a selection of finger sandwiches, scones, tea breads, and Devonshire cream and preserves, all created by Executive Chef Daniel Bruce and Pastry Chef Sharon Dresser. The afternoon tea is $39 per person, offered from 2:30-4 p.m. daily and is available through October 31. Call 617-856-7744 for reservations.
* Drink Pink at Rowes Wharf Bar - Specialty Drink Pink cocktails in the newly redesigned Rowes Wharf Bar include Aphrodite's Potion made with Ketel One Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Strawberries, GInger Flakes, topped with Peoawxxo, rose buds, or Casino Royale with Bombay Sapphire East Gin, Pavan French Liqueur, Japanese Yuzu, Blueberries, orgeat and juniper berries. The bar is open from 4 p.m. to midnight Sunday and Monday and 4 p.m. to1 a.m. the rest of the week. The special cocktails are $15 apiece.
