(We had one of the special Seahawks drinks at Hotwire Coffee [WSB sponsor] this morning)
By mayoral proclamation, it’s Seahawks Blue Week! With the Super Bowl less than a week away, we’re assembling a page of info you might find helpful – and hoping for your help collecting it. Including:

*Where to watch the game (we’ll break it out into adults-only and all-ages; White Center venue info welcome too)

*Seahawks gear and decorations – for example, PB&J Textiles (WSB sponsor) has a 2 x 3 12th-man banner at the shop, just $12, larger sizes available – 3805 Delridge Way SW or call 206-243-3053

*Who’s offering special takeout/delivery treats/times – we’ve heard of a few already:

-Harry’s Chicken Joint (WSB sponsor) will be open noon-3 pm, and is suggesting pre-orders
-West 5 will be open 9 am-2 pm Sunday and suggests: “Give us a call today (WE5-1966) to pre-order Mac N Cheese for your house party and we’ll have it ready for you to pick up and put in the oven Sunday morning.”
-Mashiko has listed specials that, if you order in advance, will be ready for pickup 1-2 pm Sunday (otherwise, they’ll be closed that day)
-Ma’Ono Fried Chicken & Whisky is offering a Super Bowl Fried Chicken Party To Go, ready @ 1 pm Sunday if ordered by 8 the night before

*Who’s closing for the day, or closing early (let us know so potential customers aren’t disappointed)
-Endolyne Joe’s (WSB sponsor) says it’s closing at 3 pm (open at 8 am as usual)

And anything else you want people to know. Best way to get us non-breaking-news info is ALWAYS e-mail – editor@westseattleblog.com – but our other contact channels are listed here. We’ll launch the info as a special Super Bowl page by tomorrow. Thanks!

  1. If you are downtown, 1001 4th Ave building has a vendor selling Seahawks gear in the lobby, by Joelle’s.

  2. Speaking of the Superbowl…So I’ve been driving past the Best Fans in the NFL signs on 99 and I finally noticed that one or two are sponsored by King County and the City of Seattle? Is this actually happening? They’re using taxpayer money to congratulate taxpayers for being fans of something? Please, please tell me this is not happening. Maybe it’s not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, but it sure makes me angry. (If it is in fact the case.) Anyone know?

  3. I’ve seen ads that Cupcake Royale and Eats Market are both doing Superbowl Takeout Specials. I’ll stay out of the argument over whether cities should subsidize pro sports, but I’m loving how the Seahawks and the whole idea of “the 12th Man” are bringing our communities together. GO HAWKS!

  4. According to this article it’s a partnership with sponsors, billboard company and city:

    I think the intent is more to keep all the distracting opponents’ ads out of town.

  5. Thanks, tricky. To the question – that blurb says “no public funds (were used).”

  6. I think Circa might be considering closing early on Smoke-A-Bowl Sunday; I got the impression they don’t think they’ll get a lot of business that evening. That does need to be confirmed though.

  7. Thanks for the tips. We hope to hear directly from venues/businesses AND from everybody who’s seen/heard something, and we *will* check before going with “tips”! – Tracy

  8. Tuesday,

    Your outrage will find no traction around here, not this week. They could literally give Volunteer Park to the Seahawks this week and we would say HOORAY! A billboard that celebrates the pride of the city would not be a problem. Even though it involved no public money and your outrage was a canard.

    GO HAWKS!

  9. I noticed all the 12th man appreciation signs and enjoyed them. I also noticed that clear channel was listed along the bottom along with the public agencies. since clear channel is in charge of billboards, I assumed they were ‘sponsoring’ the signs or donating them or something.
    anyway, Go Hawks!

  10. Hotwire was closed during the Championship game. Wouldn’t be surprised if they close for Superbowl, though I haven’t heard for sure.

  11. Marination has been mentioning a dozen taco/slider package on their twitter for all locations, it’d be a perfect appetizer!

  12. Pet Elements is closing early on Sunday. Saw the sign when I was picking up cat food on Saturday. :)

  13. Thank you all for the updates! We’ll be updating the list tomorrow; getting some interesting e-mails too.

  14. I’m glad to know that no public funds were used for the billboards, but it sounds like no one cares anyway. I guess there really is no standard for what public funds are spent on in Seattle/ King County. When did people stop thinking?

  15. Evidently on “Tuesday”.

  16. Tuesday- you probably don’t celebrate Christmas, New year’s day, 4th of July, birthdays or other fun things do you? Enjoy life and enjoy and be proud of your city! Leave politics out of it and enjoy some pride in your city like the rest of us!

  17. Tuesday – no one cares about off topic comments…

  18. when ? the same day that some people decided that they would find something to complain about, each and every day

    Comment by sam-c — 8:45 am January 28, 2014 #

  19. I spent an hour perusing the IRS website looking for the versions of the Form W-4 and 1040 that allow me to choose which items I want my taxes to be used toward. Perhaps Tuesday could be of some help here. Go Hawks! Go Schools! Go Low Income Housing! Go Understanding That I Live In A Community and Sometimes Pay For Things That I Don’t Personally Use or Benefit From!

  20. does anyone know if anyone is working at PB&J textiles?
    we went on Wednesday at about 12:25 (their hours sign says open 9-5, but front door always locked), knocked, rang doorbell for about 10 minutes. no one there. then called yesterday during day, to make sure someone was there before heading over again… went to answering machine.

  21. just had to close out the PB&J textile 12th man flag saga. went back on Friday, sign says they are open til 4 pm. knowing this, we went to try and get a flag at 3:30. all lights out. dark. I am not sure if anyone works there. anyway, with the $12 we saved, we bought TWO growlers of Lucille from Georgetown brewery. so ready for the super bowl. I brought home a 12th man flag printed at work. looks just the same, only at 11 x 17, a little smaller . oh well. Go Hawks!
