Weekend Highlight

Yum! It’s Bite of Seattle weekend, with food from 60 restaurants and vendors, beer gardens and entertainment at Seattle Center Friday through Sunday, July 20-22.

Choose your bites from world cuisines, traditional favorites and desserts, all $12 or less. And, to maximize your tasting capacity, most vendors will be offering small “Just A Bite” items for $3.75 or less. Head to “The Bite Cooks!” cooking demonstrations for inspiration and recipes to create your own tasty treats, and a Mystery Ingredient Cook-Off competition with local chefs; an audience tasting determines the winner.

The Alley offers six large bites from local restaurants for $20, a popular annual feature that benefits Food Lifeline, with new menus daily.

Outdoor beer gardens offer local brews, cider and craft cocktails with Happy Hour specials from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Craft Beer & Cider Tasting at Fisher Pavilion offers a $25 tasting package with six pours and, new this year, the Experience Bite Package combining beer and cider tasting with discounted Alley bites. (Advance reservations required.)

Friday is free movie night at the Mural Lawn Stage, showing “A League of Their Own” on-screen, and new “Munchies @ The Mural” specialty food vendors and Mural Beer Garden open until 11 p.m.

The Bite draws huge crowds, so it’s a good idea to plan ahead for transportation options. The Monorail departs every 10 minutes for the short trip between downtown Seattle and Seattle Center and is easy to get to via Sound Transit Link Light Rail, Seattle Streetcar or Metro bus. Seattle Center has bike racks and is accessible for cyclists from Myrtle Edward Bike Trail and Dexter Avenue Bike Trail.

Note that hours vary at some Bite attractions, including The Alley, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily or while supplies last, and Bite Craft Beer Tasting, 3 p.m. to close Friday, 11 a.m. to close Saturday and Sunday. The Bite requests that pets be left at home.

Also this weekend, the 31st annual Seafair Indian Days Pow Wow, hosted by the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation, features Native American performances, traditional crafts and food Friday through Sunday, July 20-22, at Daybreak Star Cultural Center in Discovery Park. Grand Entry processions with honor guard, distinguished guests and dancers in traditional regalia highlight Saturday and Sunday’s events.
