Burien Bites is one of B-Town’s most delectable events of the year. This is a community event, created to help raise money for local charities, where participants can get to know their neighbors, mingle and try specialty fare at local participating restaurants. People will have the opportunity to dine around town and taste different “bites”, all for only $2 a bite. Tickets for the $2 bites will be available for purchase starting April 8th at HomeTask 611 SW 152nd or Discover Burien 427 SW 152nd. People then can redeem the tickets at participating restaurant for their special bite.
This event will allow people to experience new and fun restaurants that they may not have tried before. “This is a great community event involving great food” said HomeTask CEO Jerrod Sessler and founder of the event.” Each ticket represents money that the restaurants will be able to donate to a charity of their choice. As tasters walk around and enjoy their bite they will have an opportunity to vote on their favorite as they go or through a specialty APP. This is the 5th Annual Burien Bites event and this year it will take place on Thursday April 14, 2016 (5pm-8pm).
“We will once again wrap the evening with wine and chocolate provided by The Guest House B&B at the afterparty at 8 p.m. and prizes and winners will be announced at 8:30 p.m.”
