Ticket Giveaway for The Newton Kitchen Tour – Food, Fun and Shut the Front Door!

 

 

Newton Kitchen Tour Sunday, April 13th

You have heard of the fabulous Newton Kitchen Tour?

My mom friend and fellow blogger, Sharon Gavini Reilly, has given me two tickets to give away!

Comment below and my fancy plug-in And The Winner Is… will choose a winner.

Tickets are available online at Eventbrite or at locally at Whole Foods. Tickets are $25 in advance and $35 the day of the tour.

More Newton Happenings in April – The Newton Kitchen Tour – Food, Fun and Shut the Front Door!

The Newton Kitchen Tour is a citywide tour encompassing many of the villages of Newton (think Newton Historic Homes Tour, minus everyone tramping through the entire house).  It’s a self-guided tour through ten amazing kitchens and there will be food. Yes, food. Some of my favorite local restaurants are participating  – I’d tell you because I’m into sharing and all that but I can’t – it’s a surprise! And architects (yes, geek out and ask all the questions you’d like) will be on site to answer questions. So if you are considering a kitchen renovation or just wildly curious to see some fantastic kitchens and get a bite to eat, grab a friend and a ticket and take the tour!
Creative, fun and sweet Sharon Gavini Reilly is the driving force behind this fun day and her enthusiasm is infectious – she even convinced me to be in this video (something I never do) And, yes, it’s true – I shut the door on this charming child. I’m not the only one. Truth be told, I did not want to shut the door (it was in the script and I had to) and I did have consolation cookies on hand. But still.
Proceeds benefit the rebuilding of the Burr School Playground, so it’s for the children!

Tickets are available online at Eventbrite or at locally at Whole Foods. Tickets are $25 in advance and $35 the day of the tour.

Download a Map & Guide for Newton Open Studios from the website or pick one up at the Newton Free Library. Use the feature-packed website to search for art in 20 categories.

One of my favorite coffee/tea/lunch places (L’Aroma Cafe) is one of the locations. Try the mocha (melted chocolate – no syrup) or one of their wonderful teas. Great selection of baked goods, too (including an entire shelf of gluten-free options).
