You get exposed to many of the best restaurants in and around Cambridge and you get to do it for good causes.  The event this year is implementing an initiative to make any trash that is produced from the event environmentally friendly so you can even feel better about yourself. The venue is the ever popular Charles Hotel in Harvard Square which is pretty convenient from the T.  The tickets include food and entertainment and if you want to have wine and beer you have to buy the VIP Ticket.  There is a DJ and in the past bands like Afro Brazil have participated.  With 60 restaurants participating there is definitely going to be something you want to try. The green initiative piece is pretty serious as they have had the participants sign a carbon footprint document which includes:

  • I agree to not bring or use any non-compostable plastic or Styrofoam.
  • I agree to bring the least possible amount of packing material.
  • I agree to separate and contain recyclables inside my area. I agree to carry back my waste to my restaurant.

It isn’t surprising that a Cambridge event would step up this way so if you have the time you can also volunteer for their Going Green efforts.  For all of the details for the 2011 Taste of Cambridge event visit their website here.

Just received an update:

*** Due to inclement weather predicted for Thursday, June 23, ***

TASTE OF CAMBRIDGE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO TUESDAY, JUNE 28.

All other details – time, location, restaurants and beneficiaries – remain the same!
