I believed we could show off our city in a much more authentic and tasty way if we’d abandon the sponsored sample trays and long walks.
(PRWEB) May 18, 2011
For years, the Seattle downtown core has successfully supported more than a dozen walking food tours, each with their own unique take on Belltown hotspots and the famous Pike Place Market. For the first time ever, Seattle now has an eating tour conducted on wheels, exploring the entire culinary landscape from Ballard to White Center.
“I believed we could show off our city in a much more authentic and tasty way if we’d abandon the sponsored sample trays and long walks. It is a blast escorting small groups of hungry people into all our many neighborhoods armed with silverware”, says lead storyteller, Bryce Lathrop. “The history, stories, and the variety of personalities is unique to this town and is really quite incredible. I believe you can taste it in every bite”, Lathrop continues. For nearly two years, the company has compiled an extraordinary catalog of hidden food treasures unique to the area. In addition, they have discovered and collected stories of the personalities playing a part in the exploding food scene in Seattle. Soliciting the help of friends and family helped the company perfect the concept. Lathrop sums it up this way, “Think of that chubby, eccentric, and gregarious uncle renowned with the gift of hospitality. That one relative you love to spend the holidays with. We want to be that uncle - everyday, every meal.”
Word of mouth, the WhiteMoustache.com website, creative themes, Facebook (http://facebook.com/whitemoustache), Twitter(http://twitter.com/whitemoustache), and mounting press coverage has led to the company’s success and expanding reach.
