The last time I was at a Foodportunity event, I hardly made it to the stage, because I kept running into people I wanted to meet and foods I wanted to taste. Keren Brown is throwing another one of her get-togethers at the Palace Ballroom on Nov. 2, where food-lovers both in and out of the industry meet up. This one will feature a panel discussion by top restaurateurs Thierry Rautureau, Ethan Stowell, and Kurt Dammeier, plenty of time to eat-and-greet your way around the room, and an optional “speed networking” session led by Julien Perry of KOMO. Cost: $30, including a glass of wine and nibbles from the panelists restaurants (Rover’s et al) as well as Tom Douglas Restaurants, Campagne, Joule,  La Spiga, and Lunchbox Laboratory.

Interested? Keren is graciously giving away a pair of tickets to the event to readers of this blog. To play, just answer this question in the comments: Which person involved in food in Seattle would you most like to meet? 

We’ll pick a winner using a random number generator at 6 p.m. PST on Monday, Oct. 26.
