Haute Weekend Roundup In Boston

The Red Sox still maintain the number one position in the American League with a 3.5 game lead over the Yankees and it was a beautiful three-day weekend here in Boston weather wise. Today has been declared Pete Frates Day in honor of Frates’ fight against ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which has raised more than $220 million, and the Patriots are hitting the field at Gillette on Thursday for the official start of the season. Doesn’t get much better than that. In case you missed it, here’s a look back at some of the weekend’s hautest happenings.

Lady Gaga made history this weekend in front of more than 35,000 fans as she took her Joanne World Tour to the stage at Fenway Park this weekend with two sold-out shows. She performed some of her biggest hits like “Bad Romance,” “Poker Face” and “The Edge of Glory” as the first woman to ever headline Fenway Park.

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House gave back to Hurricane Harvey victims this weekend in a big way. Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, which is based in Houston, distributed 20 percent of all sales from Thursday, August 31 through Monday, September 4 to Houston area food banks. The goal was to donate more than $1 million to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  (All restaurants from all concepts participated in this effort, including Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House (Seaport), Del Frisco’s Grilles (Chestnut Hill & Burlington), and Sullivan Steakhouses).

King Richard’s Faire officially opened this weekend running for eight weekends through October 22. The 80-acre site is home to New England’s largest and longest running Renaissance Festival that features acrobats, jugglers, singers, dancers, fire eaters, puppeteers, and exotic tigers. You can have some fun watching sword making and glass blowing while enjoying enormous spit-roasted turkey legs, ringlets of fryes, and boules of stews.
