Downtown Seattle offices (the WSBA included) are once again covered in blue and green as the Seahawks face the New England Patriots this Sunday with hopes to become the eighth team to win back-to-back Super Bowl Championships. Is your town celebrating Blue Friday? Share a picture in the comments!

If you’re looking for some last-minute celebration ideas for Super Bowl Sunday, we’ve got you covered.

  1. Need to feed a crowd? If you’re hosting a Seattle party but don’t want to cook, let Ma’ono Fried Chicken and Whiskey (West Seattle) or Campfire BBQ (Capitol Hill) cook for you. Pickup for both starts at 1 p.m. A favorite from last year, Trophy Cupcakes is once again selling their 12th Man Dozen. Find these delicious treats at a location near you.
  2. For last-minute party favors and decorating ideas, Pinterest has you covered.
  3. Want a place to watch the game without paying a cover fee? The Seattle Center Armory and the Seattle Central Library are both hosting free viewing parties. If you haven’t been to either of these places in a while, want to take the kids with you, or just want to stay away from the bar scene, both are great options.
  4. Eastern Washington residents can kick off the day with the “Souper” Bowl Snowshoe and Cross-Country Ski Event (including a soup lunch, naturally). Proceeds benefit charity, and you’ll still be home in plenty of time for the game. In the Tri-Cities, check out Kennewick’s Super Sunday Big Bowl Party and Spaghetti Feed. In Wenatchee, there’s the Annual Westside High School Super Bowl Rally and Fundraiser at Pybus Market; proceeds benefit the school.
  5. Spokane’s Couch Slouch has a hilarious article on why you shouldn’t watch the Super Bowl this Sunday. (Don’t panic — he thinks you should listen on the radio instead.)
