Tonight, head over to Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Boston (or any of their four Massachusetts locations for that matter) and participate in the Taste of the NFL. The nationwide event raises money to support food banks throughout the country. Here in Massachusetts, Davio’s and E&J Gallo Winery have paired up to support hunger relief by offering select wines (by the glass or bottle) like Davinci, Chianti Riserva from Italy and Ghost Pines Red Blend from Napa/Sonoma to benefit the cause.
