Football fans, get ready to rub elbows with two celebrated former Patriots players: Rob Ninkovich and Jarvis Green will be featured at Eataly Boston on Wednesday, October 24th. Italian eats meets New England sports in the Pizza with the Pros cook-off between some of the league’s most decorated athletes as they become pizzaiolos for the evening. These two are close pals to boot, which should make for an interesting showdown, with plenty of friendly trash talking.
Tickets are $25 each and include a special chef’s choice of antipasto, each of the contender’s pizzas and a chance to meet the stars themselves. A portion of proceeds will go to each athlete’s charity of choice: Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation, selected by Jarvis Green, and The Light Foundation, selected by Rob Ninkovich. If you can’t attend the event, worry not because the wood-fired masterpieces will be featured on La Pizza & La Pasta’s menu for the rest of the month. Secure your spot here.
