The Seattle mag crew is lucking out tomorrow with front row seats for the biggest happening in a long time: the Seahawks victory parade.
The parade starts at 11 a.m., with a route that takes the celebration from Seattle Center at Denny Way, south through downtown on Fourth Ave (smack dab in front of our new digs), and ends at the north entrance of CenturyLink Field.
Madison Park Conservatory has been, for the past three years, one of those restaurants that even though you know it's a dining destination, you always just assumed that it would stick around on reputation alone.
Julien Perry, former editor of Eater and contributor to Seattle Weekly's Voracious blog and KOMO Newsradio, starts today as Seattle magazine’s new dining editor. Before she hits the ground running with daily Restaurant Insider blog updates here at seattlemag.com—look for her insightful reviews and food coverage for the print edition starting in our May issue—we wanted to introduce her to our readers.
I'm a huge thrifter and consigner. I love the thrill of the hunt and the thrill of reselling. I'm constantly surprised by what people donate to Goodwill and what ends up in the Ebay store. Read on to see the cream of the crop this week.
Pioneer Square-based online eyewear boutique, Rivet & Sway, known for their home try-on package and easy-on-the-wallet pricing structure, has just released their new Chelsea Hall collection, which includes sunnies—a first for the brand.

Must SeeThe Long History of African-American Baseball in WA(2/1 to 11/9, times vary) — Washington state didn’t have a professional Negro League team until 1946, which means much of the state’s black baseball history has gone undocumented. But the Northwest African American Museum’s new exhibit “Pitch Black” aims to rectify that, with artifacts, photographs and oral histories from this unheralded community.
The Super Bowl is just days away, and hopefully your party planning is in full swing. Here’s the thing though--serving up the same old drinks is no way to celebrate and show your passion for the best team in all of football (a position that will certainly be confirmed by the end of the game). The Seahawks are awesome, and deserve to have awesome drinks consumed when cheers-ing them. So don’t resort to artificially blue-colored, bad-tasting messes. Try one of the below instead, that way, everyone comes out a winner.
As Seattle's Super Bowl mania goes into hyper-drive, we're all looking for ways to show off our Hawks' Pride.
Glassybaby has a classy way to signal your allegiance with two new votives wearing that Seahawks' brilliant blue and green. (Better still, a portion of these sales benefit the Seahawks Women's Association.)
Back in November, I was predicting a Seahawks/Bengals Super Bowl matchup. Hey, at least I was right about one team. (Dare to dream, Cincinnati fans.) So come Sunday, February 2, I will be donning my ‘Hawks gear and hunkering down to watch what will surely be a great battle.
However, I’m still not sure about where to watch it. Do I go out amidst the legions of hyper fellow fans and trust that sportsmanlike conduct will be followed to the letter? Or do I enjoy the Manning versus Wilson spectacle from the comforts of my sofa? Conundrum.
