Church got a head start on feast season with Supper Y'All, a down-home,
cafeteria-style meat-and-three dinner featuring eats from two local chefs with
Southern roots, Jade Taylor of Island Creek Oyster Bar and Jason Cheek of Toro.
seating encouraged table-mates to become buddies while passing the paper-towel
rolls. And in keeping with Southern cookout tradition, desserts -
cardamom-sweet-potato and chocolate-chess pies - were served first, followed by
hearty meats: pulled pork, braised beef ribs, and chicken so perfectly fried
the crunch was audible over music from hometown band Naughty Water. The best
part? Nothing went to waste, as a portion of ticket sales went to Lovin'
Spoonfuls and unserved leftovers went to Haley House.
guests were already rockin' whiskers in anticipation of Church's second annual
Boston Facial Hair Fiasco, a competition that will feature categories like best
freestyle moustache, best partial beard, and - listen up, ladies - best fake
beard on December 1. Snag tickets at churchofboston.com/club.html.
Heather Goddard, bartender at Kika Tapas
A major music lover, Heather took in a Megadeth concert
the night before the dinner and show at Church - and she was heading to London later that week to
see Motörhead play.
As a longtime bartender, Heather makes
friends in all the right places. Most of her outfit was purchased
from artist and store-owner pals. Case in point: her red body-con skirt from
the North End's Savas Studios, owned by a friend.
Her jewelry is a mix of mainstream and
indie designers - the necklace is by DSquared2, and she
snagged her spike earrings from Chameleon in Cambridge. Her bracelets (made of pewter
casts of chicken bones!) are from modemerr.com, where Heather loves stocking up
on pin-up clothing by owner Angela Zampell, another friend of hers.
The cherry on top (or
bottom)? The shoes, of course!
