“It’s definitely a production. No half-steppin’. We don’t do that many shows, so when we do it, we do it right,” singer Mayer Hawthorne tells us. He’s talking about Tuxedo, his new boogie-funk collaboration with producer Jake One, who’ll be gracing City Hall Plaza tonight for Boston magazine’s Best Fest—but he might as well be talking about Best Fest itself.

There’s a reason parties like Best Fest only come around once a year: Tonight, we celebrate the 283 winners of the 2015 Best of Boston awards, and to mark the occasion, guests can enjoy exclusive giveaways, live music, and all-you-can-eat food and drink from more than 30 Best of Boston-winning restaurants. On tonight’s menu, you’ll find longtime favorites like Neptune Oyster, La Morra, and Shanti, while also getting a first taste of brand-new ventures like The Frogmore or Tiffani Faison’s soon-to-be-open Tiger Mama.

And to help you arrive to the party in style, we’ve teamed up with Uber for an exclusive offer to Best Fest attendees: First-time Uber users can receive $40 off their first ride using promo code “BOSTONMAG”; just download the app or sign up at Current Uber users can get in on the action, too: Just open the app on your smartphone and enter “BESTFESTVIP” in the promotions section to enjoy 20 percent off your ride either to or from Best Fest.
