Spotted: Empire Treating Boston Cab Drivers To Dinner

Though you may not know Big Night Entertainment Group by name, you surely know their Boston hot spots - Red Lantern, GEM and Empire. While the group is known for their exotic menus and party atmosphere, today they'll be know as something else - do gooders.

Today, Thursday, August 15th, Big Night Entertainment Group will be providing free meals to Boston taxi drivers. From 4:30pm - 6:30pm drivers can pull up to Empire in the Seaport and enjoy delicacies from Executive Chef Kevin Long.

When I asked why Big Night is doing this, a representative answered, "With the high prices of gas and credit card transaction fees, Boston's loyal taxi drivers are taking a major hit. We want to attempt to give them a break."

I love this. I think it's very unexpected and a great way to reward the drivers who shuttle us around the city. Whether you've just landed at the airport or you're trying to get home after the T has shut down, there is a Boston cab driver who has made your day easier.

If you take a cab today, please spread the word to your driver!


What a sweet thing to do!

That was such a nice treat! I bet the taxi drivers were very happy with those free meals. It must've really made their day! Anyway, I’m curious if this treat runs every year. I hope that is the case, to show how much their services are appreciated. Thanks for sharing!
