Upcoming Event: Seattle Weekly's 5th Annual Voracious Tasting & Food Awards - April 24th, 2014 - Paramount Theatre

Seattle is a wonderful place for food & wine events and there is another coming up that should not be missed. The Seattle Weekly's 5th Voracious Tasting & Food Awards is an annual event that I have had to miss for one reason or another the past few years. And I’m always seriously disappointed that I’m not there once I start reading all of the tweets and seeing the photos posted by attendees. Well, no more! This year I will be front and center at the tasting tables on Thursday April 24th and you should be too! Come and indulge in an evening of unlimited bites and booze from some of Seattle's best restaurants, food trucks, specialty food artisans and mixologists while taking in the sights of the historic Paramount Theatre. This year's participants include Shanik, Tanaka San, Sky City, Collections CafĂ©, Pinxto, Rob Roy, Skillet, Blind Pig Bistro, Prima Bistro, La BĂȘte, Poquitos, Plaka Estiatorio, Veraci Pizza, Contigo, Snout & Co., Jemil's Big Easy, Los Chilangos, Pie and more to be announced as the event nears.

Tickets are $50 for general admission (7:30pm) or go all out and spring for a $90 VIP ticket that gets you exclusive early 6pm access to the Paramount Theatre, private bar in the VIP Lounge and a VIP Swag bag. Tickets can be purchased here. This year’s event is sponsored by the Washington Beef Commission and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Beef Counts at Food Lifeline.

Feeling lucky? You can enter to win a pair of VIP tickets to this year’s event from Seattle Weekly here

So get your tickets today and I’ll enjoy some sips and samples with you at the 2014 Seattle Weekly Voracious Tasting & Food Awards on April 24th!

Upcoming Event: Taste Washington 2014 - March 29th & 30th - CenturyLink Field Event Center

It’s Washington wine month once again (or #WAWineMonth to those of us Twitter savvy folk) and you know what that means: TASTE WASHINGTON IS NEAR! Every year, the month of March gives us a month-long celebration of Washington’s award winning wine industry. The month ends with the biggest and baddest wine event of the year. The 17th annual Taste Washington (@TasteWashington) is the largest single-region wine and food event in the United States, featuring more than 225 Washington State wineries and more than 65 Pacific Northwest restaurants. There are, in fact, so many wineries and restaurants at this event that if you don’t go in with a game plan you’re going to be wide eyed and overwhelmed trying to decide what to try next (trust me on this, map it out in advance, CenturyLink Field Event Center is a large facility!).
