I am back again with a new edition of Thursday Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food & drink events.
1) Kings Bowl Dedham, James White, Boston Medical Center, and Blue Sky Sports & Entertainment invite guests to join them for a charitable evening of food, fun, and bowling. Grab your bowling shoes and balls - Sitters Without Borders will be holding a bowling party and benefit on Wednesday, September 5, from 6:30pm-8:30pm, at Kings Dining & Entertainment in Back Bay.
This is the perfect time to grab your friends and have fun while helping to support advancing mothers into economic independence. Sitters Without Borders, Inc. ("SWOB") is a first of its kind non-profit organization that offers free to low-cost weekly babysitting services to low-income mothers attending college in the Greater Boston area. SWOB volunteer sitters are committed to assisting mothers with childcare responsibilities, allowing them to pursue higher education and elevate their economic position.

2) A new feast is hitting the streets of the North End this September to wrap up feast season- the Feast of San Gennaro! Taking place from Friday, September 21st through Sunday, the 23rd, the feast will feature a plethora of Italian food vendors, entertainment, and live music from The Jersey Boys, Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti, and the New York Bee Gees. The venue will be on the last block of Hanover Street (near Commercial St.) and Battery Street, similar to the site for the St. Agrippina’s Feast and Madonna Della Cava Feast.
In addition to the Feast of San Gennaro, September feast revelers and saint devotees can also enjoy a North End procession for Saint Rosalia di Palermo on September 9th and a procession and Mass honoring St. Padre Pio on the last day of the Saint Gennaro feast, Sunday, September 23rd.
