(Sorry, no “seahawk” photos available, but this bald eagle photographed at Alki Point by Danny McMillin seems to be in the appropriate spirit)
Happy Sunday! We know rooting for the Seahawks in their division-title game against Atlanta is at the top of most lists. So, first, here’s our updated list of who told us they’re open early for game-watching and/or early food takeout/delivery:
Christo’s On Alki
West Seattle Eagles
Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor)
Elliott Bay Brewing
Beveridge Place Pub
Zeeks Pizza (WSB sponsor)
Mac’s Triangle Pub
For the specific times – and other details (specials, etc.) if the venue shared that info – check out each listing on the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar. (If you don’t usually use the calendar page – mouse over the right side of any line to show a “plus” sign on which you can click; that opens a preview, with a “read more” link if you want to see the listing’s full page, usually including address, map, and more.) Any place missing? Please add it in the comments.
