SEATTLE -- The 2015 Groupon Bite of Seattle is underway, with more than 50 local restaurants serving up tasty eats. In addition to offering a variety of dishes, each booth will also offer up a "Just a bite!" item for $3.75 or less. There are even beer and wine gardens!
Admission to the event is free! In addition, $10 will get you into The Alley, where $10 gets you a full meal of tastes from some of the area's best restaurants. Hosted by Chef Jason Wilson, proceeds from The Alley will benefit Food Lifeline, which provides over 85,000 meals to people all over Western Washington every day.
Fancy some competition? (Or maybe just some shade in this amazing weather?) Chef Thierry Rautureau (known as the "Chef in the Hat", owner of LUC and Loulay Kitchen and Bar in Seattle) is hosting the The Bite Cooks!, an interactive and high-energy live cooking show that over the weekend will include both demos and competitions. We had the pleasure of having Chef Rautureau take us through a mini-competition to show us what it was like- watch the hilarious clip above to see how our chefs did!
Food isn't the only star of The Bite! Five entertainment stages will showcase local and national talent all weekend long, including a Family Fun Zone and Entertainment stage for the kids! Check out out video below for a sneak peak at one of the performers, Restless, an acappella group who performs everything from classics to current hits! (They are amazing.)
