Sampling the Square – 2007 A Concierge Event
The Harvard Square Business Association’s 4th Annual Sampling the Square event was held on June 19th, 2007. Members of the Greater Boston Concierge Association were invited on a culinary tour of Harvard Square.
This year, over sixty concierges from area hotels enjoyed a reception (light fare and open bar) at Upstairs on the Square, Z Square, Grendel’s Den, Sandrine’s Bistro, and Crazy Dough Pizza. Additionally, they enjoyed samplings from Boston Chowda, Ben & Jerry’s, Flat Patties, John Harvard’s Brew House and Felipe’s Taqueria.
The concierge toured Harvard Square in the fun and incredibly agile Boston Duck Boats; our celebrity host for the evening was the fabulous Ms. Frances Rivera. A private and very informative tour of the newly-renovated and extremely impressive New College Theater (formerly the Hasty Pudding Theater) was provided by Harvard University and the Concierge were entertained throughout the evening by the hip-swinging, toe-tapping, hand-clapping, Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band.
