Herban Feast Tasting

Our Senior Associate, Amanda attended the Herban Feast tasting last week and had some great feedback. We personally love SoDo Park and planned a great event honoring Bill Gates, Sr. there last year. The staff is great, the food delicious, and the setting is so cool!

Isn't this photo she took awesome?
Here's some insight from Amanda:
Nestled on 1st Avenue in downtown Seattle, SoDo Park is a unique, vintage Seattle, and stunning venue. Inside, high, exposed rafters soar over an open floor. The original woodwork is exposed throughout, giving the walls and ceiling a pleasant warmth. The space is full of clean lines, the modern mixing fantastically with the historical.
SoDo’s open layout gives limitless opportunities for various events. From weddings to corporate parties and private functions, the venue can accommodate virtually anything. Curtains can be hung for smaller wedding, creating a more intimate atmosphere for fewer guests. At the front, SoDo features two charming raised lounges, perfect for small groups or cocktail hour. For larger weddings, the full facility can be left opened. Round tables can be scattered throughout the floor, but there’s more than enough room to seat over two hundred at banquet tables.

The local vendors were just as impressive. Blue Danube Productions, Seattle Parties, Miki’s Flowers, and ABC Rentals were featured throughout the night. Guests were greeted with several stations set up by Herban Feast, from traditional cheese and crackers, salad and a variety of meats, to a stunning butternut squash ravioli.
Herban Feast served a delightful range of appetizers, but the sweet potato crab cakes were supreme. They made it difficult to resist and were my personal favorite!
Upon entering guests were greeted with a creative wire tree that held dozens of martini glasses, filled with their signature lemon-basil drinks.
Next door, dessert vendors had set up in Selvetica, another local venue that offers services along with SoDo’s. Brides can rent Selvetica to use for a cocktail hour or additional room. On this night, the Confectional and Sugar Rush offered desserts like espresso cup cakes, raspberry cheesecake truffles, and sugar cookies. If you’re ever near Pike Place Market, stop by Confectional for one of their truffles – you won’t regret it.
It was a wonderful evening in a great facility!
