On a cool and drizzling Sunday morning, Bostonians came out to The Commons to see the more than $35 million worth of autos on display. What a sight to see—from cute and cool to the antique and classic, Boston Common magazine presented The Boston Cup on Sept. 22. As thousands of visitors strolled the park, the sun finally peeked through for a beautiful sun soaked fall New England day.
Smith & Wollensky treated the car owners and other dignitaries to the “Classic & Exotic – Sandwiched Together”. Executive Chef Matt King provided an eastern spiced freshly made sausage sandwich. The sausages were made special for the event from dry-aged prime steaks, then grilled and served on a bun with harissa ketchup and fresh parsley tabbouleh salad and homemade chips.
Guests had their choice of chilled water from Acqua Panna & Pellegrino and assortment of fresh-baked cookies.
The cars were displayed for everyone to enjoy close up. Owners were nearby with tidbits and stories about their featured treasures. The collection of cars gave everyone quite a display demonstrating how much things have changed from the antiques to the sleek and streamlined sports cars of today. It was a fun day for all to reflect on the past and dream about the future.
