Friday 12: Ways to Celebrate the Seahawks
It seems like every other office window is plastered with a blue and green 12 today. Lawyers — and WSBA staff – are in!
As anticipation mounts for the Seahawks v. Broncos game, check out 12 ways to celebrate on Sunday:
- Get ready for some new post-win art at the Seattle Art Museum. In this friendly bet, the winning city will display the losing city’s art for a three-month loan. Start looking forward to a bronze statue of a cowboy on top of a bucking bronco.
- Enjoy Hilliard’s 12th can. Make room in your game day cooler for this pleasantly bitter brew by Ballard’s own Hilliard’s Brewery.
- If beer isn’t your beverage of choice, try one of these Washington-inspired cocktails instead. Have no fear, there are no fluorescent-colored liquors on this list.
- Don’t forget the sugar! Trophy Cupcakes has you covered with the Beast Mode Seahawks Dozen. Cupcake Royale is in on the action too, offering a 12th Fan Dozen. You can never go wrong with cupcakes.
- Look no further for the perfect Super Bowl snack list! This list includes basics like cheese and crackers, as well as fancier treats like a Madeira Mushroom-Filled Football Tart. Or check out this all-vegetarian list of Super Bowl treats. Don’t feel like cooking? Pick up some salty-sweet blue and green Beast Corn from KuKuRuza.
- Involve the tiny 12s! Looking for a kid-friendly place to watch the big game this Sunday? Check our Red Tricycle’s list of family-friendly locations showing the game around the Seattle area. If you want to celebrate the Seahawks with your kids in an out-of-the-box way, check out Marshawn Pinch, a hermit crab, and his friends Mussel Wilson, Richard Sturgeon, and Golden Skate at the Seattle Aquarium.
- Want to get your DIY on before the game? Pinterest has many, many ideas for football-themed crafts.
- We know you’ve seen a lot of Seahawks signs around Washington. Check out the “hawkitecture” from fans around the state, and learn how to add your own.
- Want to amp up your football fandom? Try some of these manicures meant for the biggest fan! We personally think the Seahawks manicures look much better than the Broncos-themed options.
- Headed to NY/NJ for the big game? You’ll want to eat well to keep your strength up for all the cheering you’ll do Sunday (and all the post-game celebrating, knock on wood!). While the knish at MetLife Stadium are tasty (or they were 15 years ago), here are some restaurants in NY/NJ you should try — and some to avoid.
- Ski before the big game. Steven Pass is selling a limited number of $12 lift tickets good for this Sunday. The tickets are good for four hours of skiing, and there’ll be a tailgate party ($21) during the game, which includes an all-you-can-eat buffet. Check out the Stevens Pass Facebook Page for details.
- Get out and watch the game. If you’d rather join a crowd to cheer on the Seahawks, check out The Daily Beast’s list of bars and eateries in major metro areas around the country. Eastern Washington, here’s a discussion thread with lots of recommendations.
