The folks over at Eat Boston have been busy this summer planning two upcoming events featuring two of my favorite things in the entire world: ice cream and BLTs.

First up, take place this Sunday, August 26th we have the BLT Battle at Sea...


At the first ever BLT Battle at Sea, local restaurants will go head to head to create their version of a BLT-related treat, on a boat. Not only will the event take place while sailing around the Boston Harbor, there will be Karaoke as well, courtesy of from The People's Karaoke.

Restaurant participants include Trina's Starlite Lounge, Chez Henri, Roxy's Grilled Cheese, and Staff Meal. The Smuttynose Brewing Company and Clown Shoes Beer will be providing the beer.

Tickets for this event are $40, get them here.

Next is the fourth installment of the Ice Cream Showdown, taking place on Saturday, September 8th on the docks at Community Boating.


Celebrate the great ice cream, gelato and sorbet our local business have to offer. This year's participants include FoMu, JP Licks, Giovanna Gelato e Sorbet, Picco, and Toscanini's. All proceeds will go to Community Servings and Lovin' Spoonfuls to support them in their mission of feeding Boston's hungry residents. And if you want to go on the water, the people at community boating will be there to assist with all boating needs.

Tickets for this event are $8, get them here.
