Hey friends, I have exciting news!  After months of recruiting, planning, and networking, the Seattle Tastecasting team launched with an amazing event at Chao Bistro on Capitol Hill in Seattle.  Chao Bistro set the bar INCREDIBLY high for future Tastecastings.  We had 18 courses to make sure we got a sampling of their breakfast, lunch and dinner menus plus dessert and drinks.  If you missed my previous post on Tastecasting, basically I head up a team of people in the Seattle area who are well connected in social media.  A restaurant or food establishment gives us a free sampling of their menu, in return we tweet, blog, post on facebook, flickr and any other network we’re a part of.  It’s a great way to promote local businesses and a wonderful experience for the team.  Tastecasting started in Columbus, Ohio but there are now teams all over the US.
