"Anna's Taqueria, Boston's beloved burrito joint, rolls for a cause in 2013 by enlisting a different local celebrity each month to prepare its signature West Coast-style burritos in support of area charities. Hosted monthly at Anna's Harvard Street store, the rolling series invites guests to give back to local organizations by paying $10 for their celebrity-rolled burrito, with the entire cost going toward the charity of the roller's choice."
At the core of Anna's mission is giving back to the neighborhoods that have helped grow the restaurant into a treasured citywide staple. On Monday, March 18th from 6-8pm A.J. Soares of the New England Revolution will be rolling for the Boston Children's Hospital!
John F. Kennedy's birth place is located right in Boston's Brookline neighborhood. When you take a tour of this home, be aware that it is shown as it would have appeared on May 29, 1917. After President Kennedy's death, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy donated the house to the National Park system. A National Park Ranger will take you on the tour which lasts about 30 minutes. They will also take you through the neighborhood and let you see where the Kennedy's moved in 1920 which is pretty cool. Relive history and see for yourself where one of America's Presidents was born and raised! ps... if you go on JFK's birthday there is cake!!! True story. I ate some.
