Summer in Seattle means festivals and events! Ever leave the Bite of Seattle trying to remember what that delicious little vendor was? Ever attend Bumbershoot only to forget the name of that cool new band you heard? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the biggest upcoming events this summer, as well as how to remember everything you discover! Two apps—Evernote and Shazam—will become your best friends!
Use Evernote to make a note of your favorite beers you taste.
Use Evernote to record the names of the best vendors, as well as the dishes you like most. Include pictures of the dishes if you want to try making your own versions. Evernote even has a food section that you might find useful.
Turn Shazam on when you hear a great song—it will tag the artist and song name for you to reference later.
Use Evernote to take pictures of cute decorations and dishes that you might want to try next year. If you’re having picnics or going out on boats, record items you don’t want to forget (or after the fact, record items you found necessary that you should bring next year).
Bumbershoot – September 1-3
Use Shazam to tag artists and song names whenever you hear great music.
