Chefs Ken Oringer and Ming Tsai, the Red Sox, Gov. Patrick, Mayor Menino, and Aramark are the brains behind Boston Bites Back. The event raises money for The One Fund and celebrates Boston's spirit and resiliency in the face of the Boston Marathon bombings. Blue Ginger owner Tsai says, "Food is our common ground, a universal experience. This event is an occasion for Bostonians to reconnect over food, mingle with chefs and honor our city's inspiring resilience. It's an opportunity for Bostonians to literally 'bite' back." You're invited to eat, drink and socialize at Fenway Park, where 100 chefs including Jody Adams, Todd English, Tiffani Faison, and Jamie Bissonnette serve their creations from concession stands and tables. If you can't make it to the event, you can still show your Boston spirit by participating in the online auction. May 15, 6-10 p.m. $200 general access; $1,000 VIP. 21+.
