While Downtown Bellevue is upscale and hip, Old Main Street is classic and charming. And while most people think of Bellevue Way’s “restaurant mile” when dining in downtown Bellevue, Old Main Street contains some absolute dining and shopping gems.
Saturday August 22nd, 10am-6pm will be Bellevue’s first Taste of Main event. For $25, each participant gets his or her choice of 2 beverages (wine or non-alcoholic), one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert. Children’s tickets are $10, and include one beverage, one entree, and one dessert. Participating food vendors to choose from include my fave Monsoon East, 520 Bar & Grill, Bis On Main, Gilbert’s, The Spot Off Main, Amore Chocolates, and Fran’s Chocolates, and others.
While you’re busy noshing on food, Main Street will keep you entertained with a silent auction, live music, kids’ art activities, and of course SHOPPING. Boutiques such as Title IX, Christie’s, Posh, and Gotta Have Shoes! will be offering exclusive sales or activities to all participants.
Interested in joining the shindig? Call 425‐688‐5130 for your tickets, or buy them at the event on Saturday. And it’s all for a good cause, too-all proceeds benefit Children’s Response Center, a Harborview Medical Center program that provides services and support for youth who have experienced sexual assault.
