Foodportunity is a networking event for Seattle’s food community.
You get to meet people who are passionate about food.
The best chefs in Seattle put their food out for you to try.
Chefs and foodies come to mingle together.
The event is October 28, Palace Ballroom. All the info and tickets are here. Buy your tickets before they sell out. And more about the lineup here
I can talk all I want about how much I love this event but we want you to tell your story. We want to provide opportunities. We are having a contest for food bloggers or anybody who wants to do something online. We want to hear your story. What’s your Foodportunity?
Here is last year’s first prize winning blog entry by Leslie from Fresh Picked Seattle.
We want you to answer this question in a blog post, a photo or a video. Be creative. We just really want to hear your story. What has Foodportunity meant to you? What does Foodportunity mean to you? Was Foodportunity the place where you came out of your shell? Is it where you get to eat lots of food and live to tell? Even if you haven’t been to one of the Foodportunity events yet, you can tell your story of what you would like your Foodportunity to look like. It doesn’t have to be related to the event, just what does an opportunity in food look like to you? Be sure to use the tag #foodprt and @foodportunityse when you share it.
Did you do enter last year? You can add a sentence or two and link to your post to enter.
Please note: The Deadline has been extended.
The deadline is October 7, 2013.
