Taste of West Seattle update: 21 and over only

With just nine days to go till the West Seattle Helpline‘s “Taste of West Seattle” food-and-drink-fest fundraiser, Helpline executive director Tara Byrne has an announcement:

In order to remain compliant with Washington State law, it is now mandatory that those attending the Taste of West Seattle be 21 and over only. We apologize for this inconvenience and have advised people [affected] who have already purchased tickets to contact Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006 for a full refund. Those over 21 that want to taste what West Seattle establishments have to offer can still buy tickets at www.tasteofwestseattle.org. Attendees will be required to have IDs at the door.

Tara says there are 15 more food/beverage participants this year than last, and there will be more room at The Hall of Fauntleroy too, with an additional “tented area” and room.

    Another example of our silly laws regarding alcohol. It’s not a drinking festival – it’s a food festival. What is the harm in a little wine or beer to go with food? Restaurants, stadiums, festivals and fairs throughout the state serve alcohol with food and childen ae present but apparently if this particular venue does then it will be a disaster and the children will be harmed!

Sorry, comment time is over.
