Burien Bites â€“Â one of Burienâ€™s most delectable events of the yearÂ â€“Â is returning on Thursday, April 9, from 5 â€“ 9 p.m.!
The event will be heldÂ atÂ HomeTask, located at 611 SW 152nd Street.
- 5 â€“ 9 p.m.: The Bite!
- 8 p.m.: After Party Starts
- 9 p.m.: Awards at HomeTask
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 â€œbites,â€ all for justÂ $2 a bite.Â Tickets for the $2 bites will be available for purchase before the event (at HomeTask or Discover Burien), or at the participating restaurants.
Participants can then redeem the tickets at the participating restaurant for their special bite. This event will allow people to experience new, different and fun restaurants that they may not have tried before.
â€œWe are always trying to find new ways to help the community and organizing Burien Bites is a fantastic way for people to have fun and be generous towards those who need our help,â€ said HomeTask CEO Jerrod Sessler and founder of the event. â€œIt also brings our community together which is all about people building relationships.â€
You can support your community by helping raise money and tasting delicious food. Each ticket represents money that the restaurants will be able to donate to a charity of their choice.
Not only do participants have the opportunity to try different bites at participating restaurants, but they also have the chance to vote for their favorite bite. Burien Bites has a custom web app that allows participants to cast their votes and submit feedback for each of the restaurants. The past 2014 winner was Maven Mercantile. Any local restaurant from Burien can participate and give a taste of their distinctive food that they offer.
â€œWe have invested or donated over $14,000 into local charities since starting Burien Bites, but the success is far greater than a check,â€ Sessler added. â€œThe people of Burien come out to eat local and come together as a community, and thatâ€™s the greatest success of all. Burien Bites and HomeTask are contributing to making Burien great!â€
