Eaters at the Bite of Seattle in 2010.

The Bite of Seattle is a midsummer tradition, and this year we chose ten things not to miss when you stop by Seattle Center to please your palate (mostly edibles, but a few other diversions as well).

1 Yippie-Pie-Yay's peach-Bourbon Hand Pie

The Alley, north side of KeyArena, Friday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

The perfect walkable summer treat. Think street food meets Southern picnic.

2 DJ Riz Rollins

Fisher Green Stage, Saturday, 7:45-8:40 p.m.

The Seattle music fixture spins his dance-y stuff. (But just remember, he doesn’t take requests.)

3 Elephant Ears at Blue Elephant

Sidewalk Special stall 6, west side of the International Fountain

If you haven’t had an elephant ear yet this summer, you might want to reconsider your priorities in life. Now is your chance to partake.

4 Ezell's Express

Food truck spot 6, west side of the Fisher Lawn

If you’re familiar with Ezell’s, you know why this is a must. If you’re not, then head over to try some of what many consider Seattle’s best fried chicken.

5 Din Tai Fung's veggie & pork wonton with spicy sauce

The Alley, Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

The beloved Bellevue dumpling house (that’s opening a U-Village location soon) serves up one of its specialties.

6 LUC's Pacific cod rillette, profiterole, pickled summer berry & grilled corn aioli

The Alley, Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., west side of the International Fountain

This is the best deal you’ll find on Seattle favorite Thierry Rautureau’s French-inflected Pacific Northwest cuisine.

7 Craft beer and hard cider tasting

Fisher Pavillion, 2nd Ave. N. at Thomas St.

Go ahead, have a drink. You’ve been eating and strolling all day. You’ve earned it. Don’t miss happy hour from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (It’s summer: daytime drinking is not only allowed but encouraged.) Participating brewers include Fremont Brewing and Dick’s Beer from Centralia.

8 Local 360's Root beer-glazed pork belly slider

The Alley, north side of KeyArena, Saturday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

Pork and soft drinks combined on a bun? Sounds like summer.

9 Shanik's roasted spiced eggplant, squash & tomatoes with crispy wheat flatbread

The Alley, north side of KeyArena Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

The initial reviews for this South Lake Union nouveau Indin ranged from ecstatic to highly skeptical. Here’s your chance to see for yourself, at a bargain price.

10 Stephanie Porter

Jazz Stage, north side of KeyArena, Saturday, 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Catch the finger-popping jazz vocalist for a late afternoon groove.
