Happy Hour called in sick this week (something about too many Fireball shots). The only cure? More TVs, beer, and seats from which to watch the Seahawks' first playoff game. But let's be honest, you probably won't be sitting much. Earlier this week we suggested 13 perfect spots for catching the game. Here, six more bars and restaurants (and one stadium) where you can scream yourself hoarse.
Sazerac Food and drink combo specials include the No. 81, which includes a “Golden Beer” and “Golden Taters;” the 12th Man Deal—draft beer, a giant muffuletta sandwich, and sweet potato fries; the wholesome No. 3, honoring DangeRuss with a Wisconsin cheddar omelet, homefries, bacon, and an Arnold Palmer; and the No. 24 complete with Beast Mode burger and choice of Bloody Mary or Marshawn Lynch-burg Lemonade.
Lower Queen Anne
Sport Restaurant and Bar No food or drink specials here, but arrive early enough and you might be able to snag one of the 10 booths with its own TV. (All booths fit 4 people max.) Even if you don’t get a booth you should have a pretty good view of the game on the largest flat screen in the city, located in the lounge connected to the bar.
Hilliard’s Beer The Street Hawk food truck, serving up burgers and corn dogs, will be at Hilliard’s on Saturday. A huge 10-and-a-half foot projection screen will show the game. 12th Can pale ale will be available for $3 a can and pints are always $4. Kids and dogs are welcome in the taproom because even your babysitter will most likely be watching the game.
Red Door Alehouse During the game—which will be shown on seven TVs, three of them with 70-inch screens—the happy hour food menu will be available, featuring wings and sliders and salads. There are also 16 beers on tap, and a few in bottles.
F.X. McRory’s The 399-seat sports bar that has been showing Seahawks games for over 30 years will open at 8:30 on Saturday and serve a brunch and lunch menu, with stadiumesque dishes like garlic fries and nachos. And with over 1,400 liquors and 26 taps, they probably won’t run out of booze. The game day drink special is 16-ounce Hilliard’s 12th Cans for $5.
Tacoma Rainiers' Cheney Stadium According to the Rainiers' website, on game day “Cheney Stadium becomes Tacoma’s best sports bar,” with free admission for fans 21 and over. Doors open an hour before kickoff and the game is broadcast on the 50-foot video board. As for refreshments, there is a $20 Seahawks-themed buffet and a selection of boozy drinks.
