Sunday night is family night at Lala Rokh

Old fashioned family fun free of distraction

For over 20 years, family has always been a huge part of Lala Rokh. We’ve watched kids grow up over the years and then come in with their own children. This community has always been important to us which is why on Sunday, September 17, we would like to introduce our first ever SUNDAY NIGHT FAMILY NIGHT.

A weekly event, Sunday Night Family Night will be a chance for our community to come together and eat good food and enjoy each other’s company. Parents will be able to come in with their children and relax before the stress of Monday comes. It’s an opportunity for families in this community to enjoy each other’s company without any of the distraction that the work week brings.

With technology being such a huge distraction today, this is a night where kids can come in and truly be unplugged. They can come in and play cards, board games, or even do arts and crafts. We want this to be a night where families can hang out without having their eyes glued to a screen.

To kick off our Sunday Night Family Nights, we wanted to do something special. On September 17th, families can join us for a $33 per person (excluding taxes and gratuity) pre-fixe dinner between 5-5:30 P.M. After dinner, all our guests are invited to watch a complimentary performance in our backroom by magician, The Great Scott.

We’re very excited for this opportunity to bring old fashioned family fun back into our neighborhood. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for the love and support that this community has given us the past two decades. Sunday Night Family Night is our way of bringing everyone together, and saying thank you. Hope to see you there.

Le Dîner en Blanc

On September 10, 2017, 2,000 people gathered at Boston’s Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway for the sold out worldwide epicurean phenomenon, Le Dîner en Blanc.

After waiting over a month to learn the secret location, guests dressed head-to-toe in white and carrying their picnics, table and chairs were escorted by Dîner en Blanc volunteers from various departure points throughout the city, including Boston Public Market, Christopher Columbus Park and Copley Square. The highly anticipated downtown public venue was revealed – the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway (Milk Street at Atlantic Avenue)! Upon arrival, guests began decorating their tables and laying out their elegant home-made picnics or picking up their pre-ordered catered baskets prepared by local restaurant collaborators Bon Me, Captain Marden’s and Pennypackers.

The smooth band John Everett Martin featuring Bob Christopherson and Gregory Holt got the party started. A stunning sun set on the cool evening as old friends reunited and new acquaintances were made. Dinner commenced with Le Dîner en Blanc traditional waving of the white napkin. After dinner, local DJ Ryan Brown transitioned the party to the dance floor, while guests waved LED sparklers, lighting up the Greenway and splashing through the gorgeous Rings Fountain.

Local hosts of Le Dîner en Blanc Boston, Samantha Kanter, Anna Berezina and Kelly Early, led the way, organizing over 40 volunteers to bring this exciting tradition to life in their hometown. “The response this year was incredible,” said Kelly Early. “We love seeing the community come together like this! We’re incredibly grateful to all of our volunteers and local partners, without which this evening would not be possible.”

Launched nearly 30 years ago in Paris, Le Dîner en Blanc promotes friendship, elegance, gallantry and a sense of community and is now held in over 80 cities in more than 30 countriesaround the world.

Le Dîner en Blanc – Boston gratefully acknowledges Kobrand Wines as the exclusive wine and Champagne Taittinger as the exclusive Champagne for the event, local partners Hive, Peak Reserve, and our friends at Bon Me, Captain Marden’s Seafoods, PennyPackers and Topo Chico for their generous support.
