The Spirit of the 2013 Holiday Season starts on Boylston Street! …And You’re Invited
What better way is there to kick off the Holiday Season in Boston than to have a glorious parade saluting our Champion Red Sox? This event was absolutely worthy of a “What’s Best About Boston” award. A huge thank you to the Sox organization for a fantastic summer, and to Mayor Tom Menino, as he approaches his retirement. This parade of Champions was the Mayor’s last hurrah, allowing the City to celebrate in style, but we all know he’s had several practice runs. Good Luck to a great Mayor and a good guy.
The Spirited Bostonians and the folks at the Rattlesnake Bar & Grill on Boylston Street have teamed up once again to host a special event on December 4th to benefit the Globe Santa Fund. This new Boston tradition is only four years old, yet has become a successful annual event that is the talk of the town, and continues to grow.
This year’s bash will feature the sounds of the Rollo Tomasi Jazz Quartet, the creative fashions of Dawn Mostow and her studio models, a “Luck-of-the-Draw Silent Auction,” a live auction featuring Boston personality and auctioneer Jimmy Wells, and an all new Celebrity Bar. Chef Brian Poe will present an array of his delectable Southwestern style Tastings, and Patron Tequila will display some of their finest products. Boston’s own, Sidewalk Sam will create one of his great sidewalk renderings in front of the Rattlesnake.
The doors open at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 4th and tickets can be purchased at the door for $20 each. A Cocktail Hour will start off the evening on the second floor of the “Snake” and will feature a new twist on the popular Silent Auction. Celebrities will try their hand at pouring drinks as well as getting together with guests for photos…so bring your camera. A few surprises will help to bring down the gavel on the Live Auction starting at 7:45pm and the winning name in the Free Drawing will be announced.
If you are looking for auction items that are all about Boston, or some type of unique Christmas gift, you’ve come to the right place. Sports related items and tickets are always popular, but there are other exciting packages that we’ve created for this particular event. Local glass artist, Wayne Strattman, will host a small glass blowing demonstration for four people at his studio and will create a special wine glass for the high bidder. This will be followed by dinner with Wayne at the new Parish Café II.
If a trip to Disney in Florida is on your bucket list, how about one day passes for four that are valued over $500. There are Golf packages for foursomes around greater Boston and Falmouth on “old Cape Cod.” Cooking class and tasting for 10 people at the Tip Tap Room on Beacon Hill with your host, Chef Brian Poe. Portsmouth N.H. getaway trip has been a hot auction item, as well as a tour of the Harpoon Brewery in the Seaport area. A very special Boston Marathon jacket is packaged with a few nice surprises. For all you Cheers fans, there is a package featuring ten items from their gift shop and a $75 gift certificate to their restaurant. And finally, if you always wanted to make your own wine with your personal label, or invite ten of your closest friends to a 2-hour shopping spree with a 15% discount at the “Blue Jeans Bar’ on Newbury Street, stop by the Rattlesnake Bar & Grill at 384 Boylston St. on December 4th…and join in the festivities, you will be supporting the children of some of Greater Boston’s neediest families, and helping Globe Santa continue their great work during this Holiday Season.
In the wake of the tragedy at the Boston Marathon this past April, the proprietors of the Rattlesnake are reaching out to the many people who were affected by the horrible event just a few blocks away, in an effort to bring folks together in a gesture of healing and allow everyone to enjoy an evening of joy and good tidings as we approach the Holiday Season.
Happy Holidays to All!
