Dorchester’s Wahlberg boys have just unveiled their latest endeavor and after music, movies, and TV shows, the brothers have officially ventured into burgers. Their new Hingham joint, appropriately named Wahlburgers, opened its doors Monday night in a star-studded event.
Actors and former musicians, Mark and Donnie Wahlberg first teamed up with their older brother chef Paul Wahlberg to open the harborside eatery, Alma Nova, now just across the street from their new restaurant. Wahlburgers marks the trio’s second business venture and quite possibly not their last, as Mark hinted at a reality show in the works. Apparently Paul is a bit camera shy about starring in the show, but Mark still plans on pitching it to HBO.
The opening event drew in some of Boston’s biggest sports stars. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, his teammate Kevin Youkilis and boxer Micky Ward, who Mark Wahlberg portrayed in his film “The Fighter,” were all present at Monday night’s festivities.
