Ok, I don’t want to make anyone feel old, but…

Did you know that the original Jurassic Park is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year? Seriously. Weren’t the 90s just ten years ago?

Jurassic Park is one of my all time favorite movies and the films that followed also hold a special place in my heart! My dad and I *may* have even written lyrics to the theme. It *may* have gone something like this…

Don’t go out
After dark
In Jur-a-a-a-ssic Park
You’ll be eaten for sure
By a di-i-i-nosaur

Thank you, thank you. I agree, it is some of our best work.

So, anyway…

On Tuesday, August 14th the Red Sox will host a screening of the (best) film (ever!) Jurassic Park will be shown on the videoboard in center field at Fenway Park!! How cool is that?

To ensure the best viewing on the 40 by 100-foot videoboard, fans in attendance will be seated in the lower seating bowl and down the first base line. Fenway Park gates will open at 6:45 p.m.and the movie will begin at 8 p.m. Attendees will be invited to walk the warning track from 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., weather and field work permitting. Concessions will be available.

Red Sox Peanut Allergy Friendly Nights

Red Sox Peanut Allergy Friendly Games

I’ve talked to quite a few parents who want to take their kids to Red Sox games, but worry about their child’s severe peanut allergy.  We all know that Peanuts are a baseball stadium snacking tradition.  They are even in a song you may have heard…Take me out to the ball game. Take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks. I don’t care if I never get back.

But, for many kids (and adults) those peanuts can cause severe reactions. Even if they are just sitting near someone who is eating them.

Because the team wants ALL Red Sox fans to be able to come out and enjoy a game at Fenway, they are offering Peanut Allergy Friendly Nights! On select nights, they will have a Peanut Free Section for fans who buy these special tickets in advance.

Red Sox Peanut Allergy Friendly Nights:

Tuesday June 27th

Sunday July 30th

Sunday August 6th

To purchase tickets for the Peanut Free Section e-mail peanutallergy@redsox.com

 

Also, the Pawtucket Red Sox will be hosting two Peanut Free nights at McCoy Stadium. Those games are Monday, July 17th and Monday August 21st. Peanut products will not be sold anywhere throughout the ballpark during those two games. Those tickets are available on their website, or at the box office.

King’s Hawaiian Brought The Aloha Spirit to Boston!

**Disclosure–I was invited to this event as media. I was not compensated and all opinions of this delicious brand are my own**

KINGS HAWAIIAN LOGO

I had the privilege of attending a truly fantastic event this week. Not only did I get to meet one of my all time favorite baseball players and eat delicious food, I got to learn more about a great company, and be inspired!

King’s Hawaiian invited me to attend their event at Jerry Remy’s overlooking Fenway Park. The event featured Shane Victorino, of the Boston Red Sox, but the real stars of the show were four great kids from the Medford Boys & Girls Club!

Shane Victorino, “The Flyin’ Hawaiian” is a native of Wailuku, Hawaii, and the King’s Hawaiian local spokesman.

The kids from the Boys & Girls Club cooking with SHane Victorino from the Red Sox using Kings Hawaiian products

The event kicked off with a cooking demo, where Shane and the kids made some delicious recipes for us all to try! The first was Cheesy Bread. This recipe was heavy on the mayo, and if you know me personally, you know that normally I run at the sight of mayo.  However, when your favorite baseball player, and two really cool kids cook something for you, you eat it! And eat I did! (Much to the shock of my friends following the event on instagram!) It was actually really good, and I enjoyed every bite!

During the cooking demo Shane answered some questions from the media. It wasn’t your normal post game interview. These questions really got to the heart of who Shane is and how important it is for him to give back in his community. This was the good stuff!

Shane talked about ‘Ohana (family) and how important family is to him. He spoke about his children and how he loves spending time with them and with his family back in Hawaii.

Shane Victorino and Kings Hawaiian

Next the girls got to work on some really amazing Maui Burgers! After eating this, I decided that every burger I have from now until the end of time will be served on a King’s Hawaiian bun with pineapple! It was so good!

While enjoying our burgers, the kids started working on dessert (which was incredibly delicious and made me consider buying a one way ticket to Hawaii, right then and there!) and Shane answered some more questions.  When asked what advice he had for kids who aspired to be professional athletes, he offered great advice handed down to him from his mother.  He said to always have a back-up plan. He believes that while you should always give your dreams 100%, that nothing is guaranteed, especially in the world of pro sports, and it’s important to have a back-up plan in case your dream doesn’t pan out.  What was Shane’s back up plan?  “I didn’t have one!” he said. He was lucky he didn’t need one! Shane also told all the kids that it’s incredibly important to work hard at everything you do, and to really focus on school.

I loved learning more about the King’s Hawaiian brand and their products as well as hearing a little bit about the Boys & Girls Club’s Healthy Habits program. Healthy Habits teaches kids about the importance of nutrition, regular physical activity and improving overall well-being. During each session the kids participate in an interactive session, create a recipe, and then taste test it! I think it’s a wonderful way to instill healthy habits!

A family owned business, King’s Hawaiian was founded in Hilo, Hawaii in the 1950’s, and makes  the #1 branded dinner roll in the United States! They believe in sharing the Hawaiian Way: a uniquely Hawaiian approach to hospitality based on graciousness, generosity, and commitment to making everyone feel a part of the KING’S HAWAIIAN ‘ohana – their extended family. This philosophy really comes through in their products (delicious and high quality) as well as in their business practices. King’s Hawaiian is a company that I feel great about recommending to my friends, family, and of course, my valued blog readers!

I have to say, this was one of the best media events I’ve attended! The location was fantastic, the brand was amazing, and the food was heavenly.  Oh, and Shane Victorino being there was pretty sweet as well!

Thank you to the great folks at King’s Hawaiian for giving me the opportunity to learn more about your brand, and making me feel like ‘Ohana!
