Support us today so that we can gather later — buy your ticket or sponsorship now!

Gathering together as a community is especially meaningful these days. Over the past few months it has become very clear that face-to-face learning at CCAE - learning in a community - is of paramount importance to CCAE students, faculty, staff and friends.

Join the Cambridge Center for Adult Education community for Lobster, Of Course!, and acknowledge how essential CCAE is in your life, as you help to fund the next 150 years of excellent, experiential adult learning. The evening will feature irresistible tastes, education, and merriment under a canopy of sparkling fairy lights in the Blacksmith House courtyard. And remember, September is one of the best months to eat lobster!

  • Taste delicious seasonal lobster and other dishes from the top chefs and restaurants
  • Enjoy 90+ Cellars wines and take a “guided tour” of local craft beers
  • Watch a demo on how to make the perfect lobster bisque
  • Learn about threats to the lobster industry that climate change poses with a local lobsterman
  • Support Cambridge Center for Adult Education’s programming, scholarships, community outreach, and more!

The Hourly Oyster House, The Longfellow Bar at Alden & Harlow, Henrietta’s Table, Branch Line/Shy Bird/Eastern Standard Provisions, Pammy's, Parsnip Restaurant, Craigie on Main, Scampo, and The Table at Season to Taste, will join us. 90+ Cellars is our exclusive wine sponsor.
