This Week in Happy Hour: Super Bowl XLVIII, Part 1
Where to watch the most important game in Seattle sports history.
In case you've been hiding in a cave for the past few days, the Seahawks are playing in the Super Bowl, Sunday, February 2 (kickoff is at 3:30). Here, some places to save you the trouble of cleaning chips out of your couch for the next five years.
Brave Horse Tavern In South Lake Union, Big Screen Bertha (the bar’s loving name for its giant television screen) and all the other TVs will show the game. Food include $10 skillets filled with nachos and the $15 “Legion of BBQ” special, which is basically meat (chicken, pulled pork, beef hot link, and baby back ribs), greens, and cornbread. Lots of drink specials, too.
Olaf’s Since they ran out NFC Championship game against San Francisco, the Ballard newbie will be making significantly more $3 green and blue jello shots for Super Bowl Sunday. If beer is more your thing, happy hour is all day with $2 Olympia pints, $4 wells, and discounts on some appetizers. As for the screen situation, there’s one 55-inch in the bar and a 105-inch screen in the Vagina Room. (Yes, your read that right.) Opening an hour early at 2pm.
Von Trapp’s Showing the game on 14 TVs, the Capitol Hill German-themed bar hopes to “rally the 12th man spirit in the bier hall” on Sunday. There will be a special Super Bowl menu starting at noon, including some happy hour regulars, football pretzels, chili dogs, and wings, and $4 half liters of Bayern VT Lager. Brunch is still 10–3.
Poquitos Also on Capitol Hill, another Weimann/Maclise joint is getting loud on Super Bowl Sunday: a special game day happy hour starting at 3pm with $4 drafts and $4 guac. View the game either inside or on the heated patio. For $7, imbibe a 12th Man Margarita—which is blue, duh. Brunch is 10–3.
