Phantom Gourmet Food Festival

Are you ready for it Boston? The Phantom Food Festival is coming up this weekend on Sunday the 23rd. It's taking place at Lansdowne and Ipswich street next to Fenway Park (lucky me, right around the corner from my apartment). For those of you that do not know The Phantom Gourment is one of Boston's food critics who dines anonymously that we don't know because he is The Phantom. There is a Phantom Gourmet television program on UPN38 on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-12noon. In addition, Phantom's 'Restaurant Report Card' segments air regularly on CBS 4 News at 4:30pm and UPN38's Nightcast at 10pm. In addition The Phantom Gourmet runs a radio show on WBZ 1030AM NEWSRADIO. The Phantom Gourmet is a ninety second feature that airs weekdays at 10:56AM and weekends at 2:56 PM and 3:56 PM. There is also a weekly show Saturdays from 5-7pm on my favorite talk radio channel 96.9, sorry NPR is not my favorite but close.

The festival will feature a sampling of fifty of The Phantom's favorite foods. We aren't talking fine-dining here folks, The Phantom's favorite food is pizza, but he/she does like the fine-dining stuff a
s well, but that is not what this event is about. It's about having a good time with friends, trying some really good nibbles like Saugus wings from Kowloon, burritos from Boloco, cheese from Cabot Creamery, pizza from Sal's Pizza, Shrimp Boil from Jasper White's Summer Shack, Lobsta Mac and Cheese from The Loft, pulled pork sandwiches from Firefly's, and a ridiculous amount of others. So much for my diet again.

There will be a bunch of parties going on inside the venues along Landsdowne and Ipswisch streets and you should dress to impress in your favorite purple outfit as there will be prizes for the best Phantom outfit at certain venues. As well the first 800 Phans (isn't that cute) to show up wearing purple (The Phantom's favorite color) will receive a $5.00 Phantom Gourmet Gift Card.

Cost of attendance is $40.00. YOU MUST BUY TICKETS AHEAD OF TIME. Many of the restaurants have sold out of their share of tickets and online they seem to be running low as the $100.00 VIP tickets are sold out. They do still have $200 Very Important Phan Tickets. The entire $200 to benefit the Fund for Boston Neighborhoods! Includes 10AM special early entry gate near Gold's Gym on Lansdown St. and admission to Ernie Boch Jr's Party at The Quarter, with catered food from the street plus music by James Montgomery.

EVENT IS 21 AND UP ONLY!!! Sunday Spetmeber 23 from 11:00am-4:00pm
