Wine Rocks Seattle 2013

From Lara Bain:
Mark your calendars: The annual Wine Rocks booze, food and music festival is happening  Thursday, July 11th. The pier at Bell Harbor will be teeming with more than 35 local wineries, craft breweries and distilleries in addition to food trucks like Marination Mobile. The coolest part: Guests are treated to live music from iconic Washington wine personalities.

Here’s what we’re most excited for…
• Watching Paul Gregutt’s band, The Wicker Rhinos, perform. We know he’s good on paper and we’re excited to see this other side of him.
• Tasting Long Shadows and Ross Andrew wines.  This is a great opportunity to sample some very buzz worthy wines.
• Purple Star – a winery with a great cause. Proceeds from all of their wines go to Seattle Children's Hospital.
• Chowing down a Tokyo Dog (fingers crossed for bacon bits) and finding something to pair with it. Then remembering that Naked City is there. Yes. 
• Pouring myself in an Uber at the end of the night and Instagramming some waterfront "selfies" with stained teeth.

If you go …
Where: Elliott Hall at Pier 66 – easily one of the best summer views/venues in the
When: Thursday, July 11, 6-10 p,m.
Why: It’s for a good cause. Wine Rocks benefits nonprofit Food Lifeline that is dedicated to ending hunger in Western Washington.
