South-End Scenes: Happy Hour With RVP & Friends & the Best Filipino Food in Rainier Valley

Good food and fun was had by all at Tuesday’s happy hour networking event at Kawali Grill in Hillman City. Your RVP co-sponsored the event, with the Rainier Chamber of Commerce, Dani Weiss Photography and Kawali owner Gerald Castro (above) whose restaurant was voted Best Filipino Food in the RVP’s 2010 Best of SE Seattle Readers Choice Awards.

Simon Kornelis and Ben Hunter delighted the crowd with live music (FYI: You can also catch this talented duo at the Bourbon Bar in Columbia City every other Thursday night).

We had a great time and the casual happy hour setting was perfect for meeting folks without any other programming.

Gerald is the man and not just for Filipino food, everything he makes is great (at least that I have had) plus the whole family is very nice.
