Aw man. . .one of the yummiest weekend events all year, the Bite of Seattle food and wine festival at Seattle Center, and it's really raining (very unusual for late July). We were there Thursday night at closing time for the preview when there were only a few spritzes now and then, but Friday brought a real rain storm with wind. I'm hoping today lightens up so folks can enjoy visiting the over 50 restaurants and 30 other food product vendors represented in outdoor booths. So much preparation and effort goes into putting this on, so I hope the chefs and restaurant owners won't be disappointed by a low turn out. People may conclude its best to eat somewhere indoors, like this! I took this shot downtown as I was passing a really crowded restaurant called Purple. The guy on the left is so interesting in this grouping. Were I to construct a story with these characters, they would be in showbiz somehow.
