FareStart Guest Chef Spectacular is this Thursday, May 23rd. FareStart is Seattle non-profit that provides job training and placement to homeless and disadvantaged people. On a weekly basis, one of the many great Seattle chefs donate their time to help train the students. Over six thousand people have been trained through Fare Start's programs over the last 21 years.
As a result, you've got a great restaurant, doing a great thing, with a variety of great chef's doing the planning. Good food and doing a good thing, all rolled up into one.
The Guest Chef Spectacular will be a tasting event with over 20 chefs contributing. There will be live music, espresso from Cafe Vita and ice cream from Snoqualmie Ice Cream. Local wineries and distilleries will be participating as well. I'm looking forward to samples from the burgeoning distilleries here in Washington. It will be a great way to get tastes of the great food from Seattle.

Tonight's Guest Chef Spectacular Has Been Cancelled
During set-up for our Guest Chef Spectacular event at Showbox SoDo, a structural beam in the ceiling cracked. The building was evacuated safely and there were no injuries. Under the counsel of a structural engineer, the venue has been closed for the evening and we are cancelling the event. We will be issuing full refunds to all ticket holders and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are happy to report that all food from the evening will be utilized for our shelter meal program and will be delivered to area homeless shelters and will not go to waste. We thank everyone for their understanding. Thank you.
