After seeing food walk success at past events like Dragon Fest and the Lunar New Year celebrations, the Chinatown-International District Business Improvement Area, otherwise simply known as CIDBIA, is launching the Happy Hour Food Walk as a standalone event this Thursday, May 19 from 4 to 7.

In addition to delicious food and drink, there will be performances, musicians, and other activities on Jackson St. You definitely won’t miss that if you arrive via the First Hill Streetcar, which is offering free rides today.

Start at Hing Hay Park where you can pick up a map of the food walk at the CIDBIA information booth. Over 25 restaurants are participating in the food walk where you’ll find bites of dim sum, Asian barbecue, kahlua pork, and more for $2, $4, or $6 at places like Dim Sum King, Kau Kau BBQ, and Aloha Plates. You can quench any alcoholic thirst at Eastern Cafe, Four Seas, and Fort St. George where there will be $4 wine by the glass, beer, and well drinks.

Every third Thursday of the month, the CID will host this culinary pilgrimage, so if you can’t make it today the next Happy Hour Food Walk is Thursday, June 16.

UPDATE 5/19/2016: We almost forgot to mention that retail stores in the area will have specials from 4 to 7 today too. While they won’t necessarily have delicious bites of food, places like Plank and Grain will have special prices on their wood iPhone cases, Seattle Pinball Museum has $2 off admission, and  Momo as well as Kobo Shop and Gallery will both have extended store hours until 7.
