Venetian Crab & New England Wine Dinner at Benedetto
Four Courses & Wine Pairings $85/guest*

Friday, July 19th 7:00 PM

Benedetto at the Charles Hotel

Teaming up with the Green Crab Project, Manomet and NH Sea Grant in celebration of Green Crab Week, Benedetto is hosting a fabulous four-course green crab dinner paired with local wines to celebrate this plentiful species and support our environment. Alongside beautifully-crafted dishes featuring these crabs are selections from Westport Rivers Winery in Westport, Massachusetts. Joining us that evening will be Jamie Bassett, representing the Green Crab Project and Paolo Tagliapietro, a Venetian fisherman and expert on the species and Corey Nuffer, Vineyard Representative for Westport Rivers Winery.

For centuries, green crabs have been embedded within Venetian cuisine: served soft-shell or shucked for delicious caviar known as masinette. Travel outside the Mediterranean and the crab has a very different reputation having upset the balance in many ecosystems. The mission of the Green Crab Project is to develop markets for the invasive green crab and create a new local culinary tradition that is both sustainable and delicious.

*Reservations are required for this event and pricing is $85/person (not inclusive of tax or gratuity). To reserve, please email [email protected].

Steve Roslonek, known and loved by millions of families throughout the country as "Mr. Steve," co-host of the nationally broadcast PBS KIDS preschool destination, will bring his signature brand of seriously good (and seriously fun) music back to Cambridge for a rocking family show at 4:30pm. on Sunday, July 28 at The Regattabar (at the Charles Hotel), 1 Bennett Street, Cambridge, MA. 

Steve's shows are fantastic and fun-filled, family-pleasing extravaganzas, packed with great melodies, clever stories, and plenty of audience participation. Many of Steve's songs are wildly interactive. Kids and families are encouraged to participate both on stage and in their seats. In fact, there are instructional videos for a few of the songs posted on the SteveSongs website to help kids learn some of the words and moves ahead of time. Check them out at www.stevesongs.com/concert-101. 

Said one parent after Steve's last visit to Cambridge in 2018, "It was awesome! My kids loved the game songs, funny word play and of course being "on stage", but I liked it because the music just sounds good." Steve will once again be joined by Chris Listorti of Oberon Rose on electric guitar and vocals, along with Steve's 11 year old son, Joshua, on mandolin and 8 year daughter, Nadia on violin. 

For nearly twenty years, Steve Roslonek, as SteveSongs, has been writing and performing his award-winning family music. A bright star on the kids' music scene, Steve has delighted audiences at such prestigious venues as the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, Symphony Space in NYC, Fenway Park in Boston, the Kennedy Center in DC, Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA, and even The White House. Steve's music has won numerous awards, including two Parents' Choice Gold Awards, a NAPPA Honor, two iParenting Media Awards, a regional Emmy nomination and a Kidscreen nomination for Best Children's TV Host. Steve's animated and live action videos online, including some for his popular illustrated books (published by Barefoot Books), have garnered millions of views. 

Since May 2008, Steve Roslonek, as "Mr. Steve," has co-hosted mornings on PBS KIDS, which include shows like Curious George, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, Dinosaur Train, Super WHY and Sesame Street.

Ben Gundersheimer (MISTER G) is a Latin GRAMMY Award-winning artist, author, activist, and educator. Hailed as "a bilingual rock star" by the Washington Post, he tours internationally playing everywhere from Lollapalooza and Lincoln Center to climate change rallies on Capitol Hill. His spirited bilingual performances aim to help children see each other across borders and foster cross-cultural connections.

As an outspoken environmental activist, Ben believes that children are "the most creative and resilient drivers of social change." He describes his work as "leveraging the power of music to educate, inspire, and empower young people to help solve the most pressing issues of our time."

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Ben Gundersheimer is a graduate of Amherst College and the recipient of the first songwriting scholarship awarded by the Berklee College of Music. For his Master's of Education thesis, Ben created a curriculum that incorporated songwriting as a learning tool. Dubbed `Mister G by his 4th grade students, he began writing the songs that would comprise his debut family album while working as a classroom teacher.

More than a decade later, Ben has released ten albums as 'Mister G' and received numerous accolades including a Latin GRAMMY Award and four Parents' Choice Gold Awards. He tours internationally headlining performing arts centers, festivals, and theaters, performing in both English and Spanish.

Fluent in a broad range of genres and styles, Ben collaborates widely with internationally renowned musicians, both onstage and in the studio. His recordings feature guest performances by saxophonist Charles Neville (Neville Brothers), Senegalese talking drum master Massamba Diop (Baaba Maal), pianist Janina Rosado (Juan Luis Guerra), bassist Oscar Stagnaro (Paquito D'Rivera) and pianist Arturo O'Farrill.
