Seattle – Voracious

Seattle Weekly’s 6th annual Voracious Tasting & Food Awards

The Paramount Theater was an interesting choice for this event but with the seats cleared from the main floor it was a big enough space to fit all the savory, a few dessert, and the booze stations. The 2nd floor balcony had desserts so felt like got a bit of exercise to work off the thousands of calories consumed. I was “dragged” by a coworker since I have another similar event tonight but glad I went since the food was great and had some interesting cocktails. Also unlike tonight this was an all-you-can-eat&drink affair. Too bad pictures are a bit blurry but it was so crowded I wanted to quickly take a picture then move along and didn’t have settings right.
