6 Kid-Friendly Spots to Watch the Seahawks
The whole family can have fun — and a bite to eat — at these kid-friendly, TV-equipped spots both in Seattle and on the Eastside.
Seahawks fans come in all ages, and while it can be fun to have people over to watch the game at your home, if you’ve got a whole family full of football fanatics — little ones included — getting out to celebrate our hometown team can be a fun treat. Finding a kid-friendly spot that is also fun for the adults can be tough, so we rounded up some of the best options for you. Take your pick and go Hawks! (Here's their 2018 schedule, so you can start making plans.)
This vintage theater near Capitol Hill shows Sunday games on the big screen for free. With waiter service and sofa seating, it’s a popular choice for all ages, so we suggest showing up early to make sure you get a seat. One you’ve settled in, treat yourself to pizza or their organic popcorn with real butter.1411 21st Avenue, Seattle
The Woodshop at McMenamins Anderson School in Bothell is fully equipped for Seahawks Sundays with flat-screen televisions, shuffleboard, pinball games, pool tables and pub fare. Kids are welcome (although they can’t sit in the bar area) and will have fun playing games in between touchdowns. Make a whole day of the trip and stop by the saltwater swimming pool on the grounds before the game.18607 Bothell Ave. N.E., Bothell
This spot near Seattle Center is a hotbed for sports fans of any age. There are no fewer than 33 televisions — including screens in the dining room booths — so everyone will have a good view of the action. Kids can check out the sports memorabilia in between plays and the menu is extensive — everything from nachos and pizza to chowder and chili. There are even gluten-free options.140 Fourth Ave. N, Seattle
Bellevue Brewing Company
A family-friendly taproom on the Eastside, Bellevue Brewing Company is a locally owned craft brewery with great food. There are always plenty of families and kids running around the roomy and casual spot, and the game isn’t shown on just small televisions — there is a large screen, too. It’s a great spot for large parties, too: Consider getting one of the private rooms with a couple of families for some extra fun.1820 130th Ave. NE, Bellevue
And ... If you are lucky enough to have tickets to a home game, here are some family-friendly activities close to CenturyLink Field:
Open to all fans three hours before each home game, Touchdown City is inside of the CenturyLink Field and Event Center and boasts interactive games, contests, airbrush tattoos, hair painting, food and more. Admission is free and if you time it right, you may catch a glimpse of mascots Blitz and Boom, or a performance by the SeaGals.
Older kids will really enjoy seeing the fans and setup at the Hawk Alley Tailgate. This premier tailgate spot is a friendly combination of three of the biggest tailgates coming together—Hawk One, The Beast Bus and the Blue Line Express. There is music, food, drinks and even a tricked out RV with autographed memorabilia and flat screen televisions showing ESPN. Proceeds from the tailgate go to local charities including Ben’s Fund for autism awareness.
