📅  Saturday, Oct 7 • 6 – 9 pm
📍 The Collective: 400 Dexter Ave N, Seattle
🎟 $125 – $225

New York City, New Orleans, and Chicago are undisputed food capitals in the United States, but let’s give credit where credit’s due: Seattle is a wonderful place to be if you’re a foodie. Not only can you find pretty much any cuisine your heart desires across its neighborhoods, but it seems like every month something’s going down in the food scene. For example: for two weeks in the fall, restaurants, bars, cafes, food trucks, and pop-ups across the Seattle area will be offering curated lunch and dinner menus ranging from $20 to $65. The occasion? Just a little something called Seattle Restaurant Week.

If you wanted to get a kickstart on all the festivities though, October 7th is Good Company: A Seattle Restaurant Week Preview at The Collective in South Lake Union where you’ll be able to try offerings from 25 chefs, restaurants, pop-ups, distilleries, breweries, and wineries. KEXP’s DJ Sharlese will be spinning tunes for the evening.

Fancy!
