During set-up for FareStart’s Guest Chef Spectacular event at Showbox SoDo, a structural beam in the ceiling cracked. The building was evacuated safely and there were no injuries. Under the counsel of a structural engineer, the venue has been closed for the evening and FareStart has cancelled the event. We will be issuing full refunds to all ticket holders and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are happy to report that all food from the evening will be utilized for our shelter meal program and will be delivered to area homeless shelters and will not go to waste. We thank everyone for their understanding and support.
The Guest Chef Spectacular was to be a celebration of the talented chefs and restaurants that support FareStart’s training programs throughout the year and was slated to feature tastes from more than 40 of the area’s top restaurants, wineries, breweries and distilleries. There are no details yet as to whether the event will be rescheduled. Again, full refunds will be issued to all ticket holders.
