Campari is a sunset red liqueur that is perfect for summer. It is also an essential ingredient for the Negroni. From June 1st through June 7th over 2,510 bars and restaurants are celebrating Negroni week to raise money for charity. Charities include the Developing Minds Foundation (Brick & Mortar), Rosie’s Place (BRIX Wine Shop), Greater Boston Food Bank (Craigie On Main, Bistro 5, Hops N Scotch, Lucca Restaurant, Kirkland Tap & Trotter) Lovin’ Spoonfuls (Farmstead Table, La Brasa, Toro), Youth on Fire (Franklin Café), The Wounded Warrior Project (Park Restaurant and Bar, Russell House Tavern, Temple Bar), MSPCA (Pastoral, Vine Brook Tavern), Future Chefs (Straight Law), National MS Foundation (Sycamore), Cure ATRT Now (West Bridge Restaurant), North East Organic Farm Association (Woods Hill Table), Pan Mass Challenge on behalf of the PMC Team Rialto-TRADE (TRADE) and People Helping People Burlington Food Pantry (Papa Razzi Metro) among others.
The bar or restaurant that raises the most money for charity will get an addition $10,000 donated by Campari to the charity they have chosen to support for Negroni Week.
So, this is a great opportuinity to try something new, if you have not yet sipped the tangy, sweet elixhir of summer known as the Negroni, and to support your favorite local charities, bars and restaurants. If any week calls for a bar or restaurant crawl, I’d say this would be it.
