HUBWIDE - It is too late to attend the Boston Bites Back culinary festival at Fenway Park, but the organization's charity auction to benefit the One Boston Fund continues. Among other opportunities, philanthropic food nerds can bid on a dinner party at home cooked by Ming Tsai and Ken Oringer, a traditional Chinese barbecue at Shojo, or a meal cooked by Lydia Shire, Jody Adams, Tiffani Faison, Carolyn Johnson, Ana Sortun, Mary Dumont, Rachel Klein, Barbara Lynch, and Joanne Chang in Shire's home. For the philanthropist and tattoo lover, there is the chance to get a tattoo with Jamie Bissonnette followed by dinner at Tavern Road cooked by Louis DiBiccari, Dante DeMagistris, Will Gilson, Samuel Monsour, and Bissonette. The auction ends May 30. [Charity Buzz]
