Every booth had a sign promoting the contest along with the food vendor's twitter handle. What a great way to promote local restaurants and start following them for food specials and updates!
|First stop- .@Dumplingtzar Russian dumplings! |
|2nd stop- Trophy Spice! Elk burrito |
|Finally! 3rd stop- @iwantsomebigboys!! Pork adobo tacos and longanesa breakfast sandwich|

Other than eSurance's contest, I loved the Groupon and PhotobombNW booth! You get a free photo and a chance to share what your favorite local spot is. It can be a restaurant, park, etc. just anything local that "you heart beats for." If you Instagram your photo and hashtag #lovelocal, you will be entered to win $200 from American Express.
|My heart beats for #Vivace! #lovelocal #seattle #biteofseattle Thanks @photobombnw and @grouponseattle!|
|We made it on the Wall of Fame!|
I really enjoyed the way the Bite used different social media channels to share what was happening at the Bite this year. Other than food, I also loved watching Dock Dogs! It's a distance jumping contest for dogs! Dogs willingly jump from a dock to fetch their toy in the water. It was so impressive and cute to watch the dogs!
I hope all you Seattleites were able explore the Bite this year. It was a great day to enjoy our amazing summer weather with good eats. If you missed it, be sure to mark your calendars for next year!
