What started as a 25-truck gathering in a small parking lot, the Mobile Food Rodeo has grown into an annual, multi-day celebration of small business and on-the-move eateries. Since that first powwow, the Rodeo has become one of the country's largest festivals of its kind, roping in up to 40 food trucks per event. In 2013 alone, more than 87,000 people dispersed through Seattle's neighborhoods?Capitol Hill, South Lake Union, and Fremont?to experience new flavors, all while avoiding having to thumb wrestle for a table at a restaurant. The Mobile Food Rodeo does more than just fill bellies, though, since it acts as a showcase for new culinary talents and creates a vibrant marketplace for small businesses to share their talents.

It?s hard to miss Columbia Center. Completed in 1985, the structure demands to be noticed?its three massive, interlocked concave facades stretch to a mighty 943 feet, making it the tallest building in Seattle and the 20th tallest building in the United States. The landmark occupies an entire city block, just like the Great Pyramid of Giza, and houses offices and a public observatory that treats eyes to views of the surrounding mountains and Puget Sound, where food and drinks are available for purchase. Inside, the behemoth building contains a panoramic 360 degree view, and the Columbia Tower Club, a private business and fine dining club located on the 76th floor.
