Seattle's food connoisseurs treated themselves to a variety of mouth-watering cuisine at Friday's
South Lake Union Block Party, a mixer for those living and working nearby.
Neighborhood restaurants and those from other parts of Seattle came out to serve tasty meals and snacks, filling the summer air with their aroma.
The whole block could go from smelling sweet to savory with a gust of wind.
Beet salad and steamed clams were two of the gourmet meals
gobbled up by hungry block party attendees
By purchasing a special meal ticket, foodies got to nibble on samples from each vendor. These were not your run-of-the-mill snacks. They ranged from summer beet salad, to fresh steamed clams.
Food carts were stationed in one area of the block party, selling everything from pulled pork and Thai food to
Molly Moon's famous homemade ice cream.
Anyone with an appetite — or a pulse — was sure to find something to please them.

of a feast
As day turned to night, the South Lake Union Block Party transitioned into an
outdoor movie screening of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Dinner and a movie on the town — it doesn't get much better.
