El Gaucho Bellevue has announced that its annual Pour on the Plaza event is returning for a third year. On Saturday, June 25, guests are invited to enjoy an array of delicious appetizers from El Gaucho Bellevue and Waterfront Seafood Grill while tasting wines from over 20 of the Northwest’s most distinguished wineries. This year the event will support the Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club of King County.
Taking place from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., Pour on the Plaza will be held on El Gaucho Bellevue’s gorgeous new outdoor patio situated in the heart of downtown Bellevue’s financial district in City Center Plaza. Cost is $85 per person, including tax and gratuity. Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant at (425) 455-2715. Complimentary valet parking will be offered at El Gaucho’s front door.
Setting the mood will be the upbeat Latin grooves of A Cedar Suede. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet Season 1 Top Chef David Martin, who will be making a special appearance to autograph his latest cookbook for a minimum donation. All proceeds will benefit the Rainer Vista Boys & Girls Club.
