Join us on Friday, September 21, from 7 to 10 p.m., for a 140 Supper Club inspired by the flavors of Boston and New England. The dinner celebrates the September release of “100 Things to Do in Boston Before You Die,” the city’s newest guide that lists Fairmont Copley Plaza’s 140 Supper Club dinners as a must-do for the “fabulous private dining room” and “deliciously decadent” food. Author Kim Foley MacKinnon will be in attendance to chat about her picks, and copies of the book will be available to purchase on site for $16 each.
The five course dinner is part of Fairmont Copley Plaza’s popular 140 Supper Club series where guests descend a century-old staircase and whisper a password to be immersed into an intimate gathering hosted by Executive Chef Laurent Poulain.
