Seattle Restaurant Week: Round 2, Food Lifeline and you

More than 120 Seattle restaurants are gearing up for round two of Seattle Restaurant Week set for Sundays through Thursdays October 17 through 28. (Yeah, yeah, I know: that’s two weeks, but who’s counting?)

Restaurant Week made its debut in April, with 106 restaurants throughout King County offering $25 three-course dinners while some added $15 three-course lunches. To celebrate the upcoming fall promotion — and convince you to mark your calenders — the group is holding a fundraiser next Tuesday, August 24 from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Olympic Sculpture Park.

Show up (at the corner of Western Avenue and Broad Streets) and you’ll have a chance to rub elbows with 100-plus chefs as they gather for a photo-shoot and take part in a community food drive to benefit Food Lifeline. Representatives from the local hunger-relief agency will be on hand to accept donations of non-perishable food items or monetary contributions.

And get this: In exchange for every item collected or dollar donated you’ll receive a raffle ticket. The prize, drawn at 11 a.m., is $1000 in gift certificates from participating restaurants. The Seattle Times is an organizing sponsor.

For the inaugural Seattle Restaurant Week, chefs gathered at Gas Works Park. Recognize anybody? I do.
