Not only were dozens of current West Seattle food/beverage purveyors part of tonight’s Taste of West Seattle, attended by more than 300 people at The Hall at Fauntleroy — one future local eatery was represented too. That’s Andy Pattalochi, manager for the future Wing Dome in The Junction, expecting to open just north of CAPERS in July. We did mention more than 300 people, right?
Guests were entertained by performers including Troupe Hipnotica:
And after we showed you their setup work earlier, we had to show you the finished look at Skylark Café and Club (WSB sponsor)’s table:

Just heard back from promoter Brooks re: results of the voting during The Taste – he reports: “Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes won! Fresh Bistro and Bakery Nouveau tied for second.” (WSB was among the co-sponsors of tonight’s event.) FRIDAY MORNING UPDATE: One more photo to add – Helpline provided this photo of director Anna Fern (left) accepting a big (in more ways than one) check from Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) during The Taste:
