Caffe Vita Presents the Third Annual Seattle SoundBite Taking Place Thursday, April 8th @ Showbox SoDo!

| March 19, 2010


Caffe Vita and the Washington Restaurant Association Seattle Chapter present the third annual Seattle SoundBite. Twelve Seattle restaurants will sell a lineup of “street-style” bites, alongside the musical performances of the winning bands from our first online public vote which took place on the Seattle City of Music website earlier this year.

SoundBite was created along side Caffe Vita to highlight the unique relationship that restaurants and musicians share, and celebrate hard-working foodservice employees. The charities this event supports reflect a commitment to developing youth both in the music and the foodservice industries.

Also on the evening’s menu is a special headlining performance by Seattle country-rock darlings, The Maldives (whose members work at Fuel Coffee, Conor Byrne and Tango), with Shawn Stewart of 103.7 The Mountain as MC and DJ Darek Mazzone of KEXP keeping the party going between sets.

Winners of this years call for entries includes: Amsterdam who’s members work at The Melting Pot, Velcro Mindset who’s members work at Glendale Country Club and Sam Russell and the Harborrats employees of TASTE Restaurant at Seattle Art Museum.

SoundBite takes place Thursday, April 8, 2010, at the Showbox SoDo. This years restaurants include Via Tribunali, Bastille, The Pike Street Fish Fry, Quinns and many more. For more information and tickets click here.

Café Weekend is committed to fostering Artspace’s mission and understands the importance of the Hiawatha Lofts to the Jackson Place Community & the surrounding neighborhoods.

Feel free to swing by and show your support to the local community and your neighborhood Cafe.

“Christa Thomas & Nhon Truong have opened Café Weekend in January of 2009 in the Hiawatha Lofts after being displaced from their Rainier Cold Storage/ Georgetown studio. Growing up with the community dynamic of our parents & grandparents who have lived alongside Rainier Ave/ Beacon Hill & greater Seattle neighborhoods since the 40’s. We felt that not only moving our studio to Hiawatha Lofts in the N. Rainier Valley to encourage our own professional growth, but fostering another generation of community was a natural step. ” – Owners of Cafe Weekend
