Chef is throwing a Block Party for the Geekwire Summit

Chef and Geekwire have a few things in common: we’re both full-stack tech geeks, we’re both rooted in Seattle, we’re both obsessed with community building, and we’re known to play a bit of ping pong in between coding or reporting sessions.

So Chef is thrilled to host this year’s Geekwire Summit Welcome Party at our new offices in Pioneer Square – 619 Western Ave., Suite 400. We’re opening our doors to all Summit attendees for a Block Party on the evening of Weds. Sept. 30 from 6 – 8:30pm to kick off the event festivities. We’ll have good representation from Seattle’s tech community and hope that you will join us for some great food, drink, and fun.

John Cook and I will face off for a ping pong match later in the evening – the “loser” will donate $1,000 to the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship supporting STEM education. We’ll have KEXP DJ Darek Mazzone to keep the music flowing, with food and drinks abound.

We can’t wait to welcome Geeks from across the country to our block. Speaking of our block, there’s a bit of construction on Western Ave right now, so I hope you’ll excuse our mess. To make getting to the party easy, check out this map detailing the many parking lots within short walking distance of our offices, all with affordable evening rates.

See you all on the 30th!
