Passport to Pairings



Join the BBF on June 25th for a trip around the world where you will explore pairings of gourmet cuisine and signature drinks, while learning about how the BBF pairs with the BBA to fund the BBA’s portfolio of public service programs. This event brings together hundreds of guests, from leaders of the bar to summer associates, for a relaxed culinary event featuring gourmet cuisine, signature drinks, live jazz and more.   

Attendees of Passport to Pairings will travel throughout the offices of 16 Beacon Street to stations holding different food and beverage pairings, each representing a project benefitted by the event. Stations will be hosted by BBA staff members ready to tell attendees all about the work they are supporting.  Each attendee will be given a “passport” upon arrival to have stamped at each station. Catch a glimpse of the event in our photo album from last year’s Passports to Pairings debut. 


Join us for the tastiest event of the summer and to benefit programs that provide educational and employment opportunities to Boston youth, support for military veterans, pro bono assistance to those in need and much more. 100% of the proceeds from this event help fund Boston Bar Association Public Service programs.
