Friends For Tomorrow's OktoberFFesT at Frank's Steak House

Frank's Steak House warmly invites you to a celebration in support of Friends For Tomorrow featuring a selection of wines, microbrewed beer, a hearty buffet, and trivia!

Friends For Tomorrow brings together children and young adults with special needs and horses, providing therapeutic riding lessons and unmounted activites to young people facing cognitive, social, emotional and physical challenges.  A sense of safety, community, and acceptance promotes trust and friendship as the children explore their newly found abilities on horseback.  We believe that by fostering the magical relationship between horse and rider, measurable benefits, both emotional and physical, can be achieved.  One child at a time, Friends For Tomorrow empowers children to reach new milestones in freedom and independence. 

Proceeds from this event will help fund the magic Friends For Tomorrow brings to so many children.

FAQs

What is Frank's Steak House?

Frank’s Steak House, www.frankssteakhouse.com, was established in 1938 directly across the street from its current location on Mass Ave in Cambridge. Nobody remembers an actual “Frank” that owned it, however the land deed in the City Clerk’s Office does note that the parcel of land was once registered to a “Frank Viano”. We assume he established the restaurant, however the locals have a better story. According to local legend, originally there was no name of the restaurant in its beginnings; however, there was a neighborhood friendly drunk named Frank who was always on the first stool in the bar. Evidently the owners looked at each other and said “why not?” and named the place after the friendly lush… Franks moved to its current location in May of 1940, further establishing it as Boston’s and Greater Boston’s Steak House.

Today, Frank's is owned and operated by the Ravanis Family, who are passionate about
Friends For Tomorrow and its mission.

What are my parking options at the event?

Free off-street parking is available behind Frank's Steak House and behind Verna's Donut Shop
located at 2344 Massachusetts Avenue.

3 Pillars of Success!
