Tis the season! Well for pumpkins and ghosts and goblins that is. It also appears to be the season of food events; there's so many coming up in the next couple of weeks we can hardly keep track.

Great Pumpkin Festival: If you love Pumpkin Ales (and we all know you do) then head over to the Cambridge Brewing Company on October 30th for the CBC Great Pumpkin Festival where they'll be featuring over 30 variations of the seasonal brew. They'll also be serving up Oktoberfest inspired cuisine, and you won't want to miss the ceremonial tapping of The Great Pumpkin which will go down at 10pm.

And now, for one event that's really special. We just caught wind of this but the First Lady of the United States is going to be in the great city of Boston soon! The ticket price may break the bank but an opportunity to meet Mrs. Michelle Obama might just be worth it. Throw in some of our favorite local chefs and we might be sold. For additional details and to register for the event click here.
Tuesday, October 30; 3:30pm
Tickets start at $250
