    West Side Public House is pulling their pool table and putting in extra seating as well as adding another projector for the game.

    Will there be more than 1 bartender? I was there on a crowded Saturday night and there was only 1 bartender and they closed early at 130. If you guys want to be successful you need to step it up.

  • Diane January 30, 2015 (2:14 pm)

    would love to hear about any other “not football” alternatives; I’m hoping our local libraries will be football-free; wondering where else I can go with my laptop where there is not football playing on tv and/or sound system

    • WSB January 30, 2015 (2:25 pm)

      The Central Library downtown is showing it on their big screen. I haven’t heard of any local branches showing it.

  • Chris January 30, 2015 (2:26 pm)

    Westy once considered a community friendly sports bar is NO Longer community friendly. Their community only now includes those that can plunk down $100 to watch the game. How many repeat customers like myself are now excluded from watching the game there? I can spend $100 over a few months there but putting it all up NOW is so irresponsible to my family.
    I am disgusted and will never set foot in there again. That is the way they are going to manage the crowds, I’ll give all my business to other community bars that have equitable practices.

    • WSB January 30, 2015 (2:40 pm)

      Well, to be specific, and I know because they sent us the announcement – it’s not on our list because we are only listing places without cover charges or other requirements for getting in – their plan was that they were guaranteeing a seat to people who bought a $100 gift card, as explained on their Facebook page. We encourage people to contact businesses directly with their concerns (and support!) rather than just venting somewhere else that they may never see it, so I hope you have shared your opinion with the ownership there. – Tracy

    Diane–what about Starbucks?

  • HelperMonkey January 30, 2015 (3:18 pm)

    Wow, that is super surprising about the Westy. Surprising and disappointing. we just started going there and really liked it. Not sure I’d want to go back now. they’re already slightly overpriced. paying what is essentially a cover charge to get in feels wrong.

  • Diane January 30, 2015 (5:10 pm)

    yeh, hoping Starbucks won’t be playing the game
    what is Westy?

  • miws January 30, 2015 (7:05 pm)

    Diane, it’s a sports bar that opened up on 35th a couple months or so ago, in the Kenyon Hall area.

    I don’t understand why people feel like they need to make a statement about “NOT WATCHING” the superbowl. why can’t you do what you normally do on a Sunday afternoon/ evening? Get caught up on laundry, go on a walk/ hike, make dinner, read a book, dust, or call another family member and get caught up. phone convos with family can easily fill up one hour of the superbowl. there’s no need to make ‘better than you’ pronouncements about not watching superbowls. Do you go out to eat EVERY Sunday evening and now fear you can’t cause superbowl will be on everywhere? go out to eat on Saturday instead…If you like to watch TV on Sunday evenings, the superbowl is only on one channel. it’s not like the state of the union address.

  • Eric January 31, 2015 (9:52 am)

    Diane, there are so many football alternatives to do, just like any other weekend. It just so happens this weekend has a football alternative

  • Brandon January 31, 2015 (12:23 pm)

    Anyone know of family friendly Seahawk activities today. It would be fun to bring the kids to some sort of pep rally sort of thing.

  • kevin January 31, 2015 (10:32 pm)

    You are SO correct about all the other activities available instead of watching TV. I hope Seattle wins, but count me in the “NOT WATCHING” camp.

  • step away from your computer February 1, 2015 (10:41 am)

    For the anti-SB crowd, there are so many alternatives to televised football I have to wonder what you are doing with your life here in Seattle? That’s a rhetorical question born of compassion.

    Start here: Hike in the foothills. Walk in the city. Repeat. Go for distance, not speed. Hear birds. See the fattening buds on bushes and little shoots pushing their way through the earth. Count the cranes downtown.

    If you do not know where to do these simple things in this city or the foothills of the Cascades, you are missing out horribly. Step away from your computer and reframe your choices…
