No pants? No problem! Chefs in Shorts will celebrate almost two decades of dressed-down alfresco feasting when it returns to the Seaport World Trade Center. The 19th annual culinary event takes more than 30 area chefs out of the kitchen and onto the patio, where they’ll serve up samples of their restaurants’ fare. This year’s participating eateries include Bastille Kitchen, Coppersmith, Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar, Scampo, Top of the Hub, Gather, the Salty Pig, Lulu’s, the Tip Tap Room and more. Guests will also enjoy beer and wine from local purveyors, chef grilling contests and live entertainment. The event once again benefits Future Chefs, a nonprofit dedicated to preparing urban youth for opportunities in the culinary field, so bare your knees and come hungry for a good cause on June 24.
The 19th annual Chefs in Shorts runs from 7 to 10 pm on June 24 at the Seaport World Trade Center, 200 Seaport Blvd., Boston. $80. futurechefs.net/event/chefs-in-shorts-2016
