Catering Escapades

on Fri, 01/16/2015 - 18:36

In the past few months I've catered a handful of funeral receptions and memorials.  Surprisingly they have been the most uplifting events gigs I've had.  I think death is so mysterious and foreboding that if pushes people closer together with increased appreciation.  The one job that stands out in my mind is the Hastings memorial.

Three siblings were spread across the country.  They had a brilliant idea, to rent a mansion via AirBnB in Chestnut Hill inviting 15 of their extended family to stay for the weekend to celebrate the life of their father.

SKATE - A SLEEPER OF A FISH

On October 7th, I was one of two MC’s for the Seafood Throwdown at the Boston Local Food Festival.  There were many young movers and shakers in the sustainable food industry, giving me evidence that this world may be okay when I'm gone.  Example: Jared Auerbach owns a sustainable fish wholesale biz. He explained that he is alerted the minute a single (sustainable) fish is caught and where exactly its caught thanks to the remote tagging scanner used by fishermen/women.
