If you’re from Washington State then I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with The Bite Of Seattle. Personally, I haven’t gone in years because the last time I went [3 years ago] to The Bite it was pretty basic stuff. Walk around to the different overly priced food tents, and then listen to bad live music as you try to find a spot to eat in peace.
I’m sad to say this year was no different, to the point I noticed all the food tents were even in the same place they were 3 years ago. I guess my point is, after all these years, they haven’t found a way to make The Bite Of Seattle worth going to every year. If all you’re getting is food that you can get whenever you want, whats the point in fighting through traffic to get all the way down there and do the something you did last year, and they years before that. The least they could do is add in a concert, bring in some sort of head liner. I’m not saying you have to grab Beyonce or anything; but last I checked, Frank Ocean was just here. Why didn’t they try to get him to just perform at The Bite??? Maybe have a different performer each day….. SOMETHING!
By now I’m pretty sure you know I won’t be going next year or the year after that. I think once every 3 years is good enough for me.
