As the big game approaches on February 2, it seems as if Seattle is gearing up and showing their Seahawk pride all over the place. Blue and green cupcakes, Beast Mode burgers, and 12th Man flags are just a few of the ways some places are 'hawking out. Here are some spots to get in the spirit through Seahawk-themed food and libations:
This one-stop sweet shop has a whole lot of green and blue in the store right now. Peachy rings, foiled chocolates, gummy bears, malt balls, jelly bellies, taffy, and more. And yes, there are Skittles too—in both regular and sour. The Confectionary is also offering gifts and sideline treat bags equipped with sugary essentials for game day. Get your Seahawk party paper goods here as well.
Cupcakes don’t always have to be girly—but even these football-themed cakes are pretty cute. Trophy is showing their pride with the Beast Mode Seahawks dozen. The dozen is $47.50 and includes six Beast Mode vanilla cupcakes with Skittle-orange buttercream sprinkled with Skittles and a mini football, along with six chocolate vanilla cupcakes sporting Seahawks colors and a 'hawk helmet ring. Individual cupcakes also sold. Come in early because these sell out quickly.
KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn
Get loud and proud with KuKuRuZa and feast on Beast Corn, a great snack for game day (and before). This colored kettle corn is available in store and online now until Super Bowl Sunday. It comes in one gallon bags for $13 each.
Brave Horse Tavern
This South Lake Union spot knows how to root on its main men. Starting January 27, try the 12th Man burger. This bad boy comes with three patties and a whole lot of napkins. Turn it up a notch and Beast Mode any burger for an additional $4 to get double the meat, double the cheese, and a pack of Skittles. With every Beast Mode burger, $2 of the $4 is donated to Marshawn Lynch’s charity. The crew is also making Seahawk slushies, Jell-O shots, and other 'hawk-themed drinks.
SPORT Restaurant and Bar
Sit back and give back at this sports place near the Space Needle currently offering the Legion of Boom Bomber, made with Stoli Razz, sour mix, blue curacao, some Midori, and all dropped into a pint with Red Bull. For every specialty drink, $1 will be donated to the NFL’s Kick Hunger Challenge.
To support its neighbors, Starbucks has created a limited-edition Seahawks gift card. And it’s pretty popular to say the least. Most stores are already out of stock, but there may be a few lurking around the city. To save yourself some sweat, buy one online.
Rain City Burgers
This bright green burger place is always cheering on the 'hawks no matter what time of the year. On the menu all year is the 12th Man Burger with two beef patties, four slices of bacon, and American cheese.
ART Restaurant and Lounge
This downtown spot is offering two unique cocktails to show its pride. Try the bright blue Super Bowl Sling featuring Warship rum infused with blue Skittles, Benedictine, orange bitters, and more. The 12th Man is also available with Celestial reposado infused with green Skittles, Cointreau, a house sour mix, and garnished with a mini 12th Man flag. Stay tuned for Super Bowl Sunday specials.
