The city’s premier “tasting” event, the Seattle Wine and Food Experience (SWFE), returns for a seventh year, Sunday, February 22, 2015 (12-5 pmVIP, 1-5 pm General Admission) at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. New to this year’s SWFE is a Saturday night kickoff event hosted by Seattle magazine. POP! Bubbles & Seafood will feature the Pacific Northwest’s bounty of seafood from local fish and shellfish providers and a dozen chefs paired with Champagne, sparkling wine, cider and beer.
