FLAVORS OF BOCA 2020!  Thursday, Feb 6 at The Addison

Junior League of Boca Raton’s beloved Food and Wine Extravaganza returns!

Flavors of Boca 2020 is almost here!  Now celebrating its eleventh consecutive year, the beloved Food & Wine celebration has rapidly become the area’s most popular and highly praised indoor / outdoor culinary festival. And this year promises to continue the tradition, with an all-star lineup of restaurant and wine participants, live entertainment, prize-filled auctions, and more. The theme for this year’s event is “Love” (just in time for Valentine’s Day) – so expect to see a lot of reds, pinks and whites in the decor, plus a special wall installation. The Junior League of Boca Raton (JLRB) presents the Flavors extravaganza each year, and all proceeds go to benefit the JLRB.  It all takes place Thursday, February 6, starting at 6:00 for VIP,  6:30 General Admission, at The Addison, 2 East Camino Real, in downtown Boca Raton.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to sip, sample, and savor unlimited offerings from over thirty of the area’s finest restaurants.  The full lineup of restaurants is still being finalized, but look for returning favorites and newcomers alike, including Benihana, Bolay, Burton’s Grill and Bar, Crazy Uncle Mike’s, GourmetPhile, Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, Just Salad, Kapow Noodle Bar, Lemongrass, Lionfish, Loch Bar, M.E.A.T. Eatery & Taproom, Oceans 234, Poke Jay, Ramen Lab Eatery, Raw Juce, Rebel House, The Addison, The Melting Pot, Touch of Spain, Two Fat Cookies, and more!   And to accompany all this fine fare, enjoy unlimited samplings of fine wines, craft beers, and spirits – including special presentations and signature cocktails.


All this, along with live music and  performances by Fred Astaire dancers, an exciting live auction, silent auctions, raffles, and local vendors, plus a great chance to schmooze with a few hundred like-minded revelers under the stars at the majestic Addison courtyard — sounds like a party to me! In addition, guests will get to vote on their favorite dish by the participating restaurants to take home the inaugural “JLBR Flavor” Award.



Patrick Duffy, The Addison’s Executive Chef, will again serve as the event’s Head Chef. “Flavors has absolutely become one of the most highly-anticipated foodie events in South Florida, and it gets better every year!” notes Chef Patrick. “You won’t want to miss this… Flavors represents the best-of-the-best of Boca Raton!”
