Fuel up at SoDo brunch spots like airy Macrina Bakery (1943 First Ave S; macrinabakery.com), a few blocks south of T-Mobile Park and Lumen Field, for weekend brunch classics like house-made French toast. Near the new Climate Pledge Arena, Toulouse Petit (*601 Queen Anne Ave N; toulousepetit.com) has an equally early opening time and Creole-style favorites, including shrimp and eggs over creamy grits.
Make sure you’re properly attired for a day in the stands. T-Mobile Park’s Mariners Team Store (1250 First Ave S), Lumen Field’s Pro Shop (800 Occidental Ave S), and the new Kraken Flagship Team Store (*901 Fairview Ave N) have all the gear imaginable, from Sounders scarves and throwback Mariners jerseys to Seahawks caps apparel featuring the highly-anticipated Seattle Kraken.
Join March to the Match (soundersfc.com/matchday/march-to-the-match), a fan parade that starts in Occidental Park and travels to Lumen Field (*800 Occidental Ave S; centurylinkfield.com). The ‘Pen in T-Mobile Park (1250 First Ave S; mariners.com) offers up-close glimpses of pitchers in the bullpen and elevated fare like “Seattle Wings,” Taylor Shellfish fried oysters tossed in hot sauce.
Ride high on a Mariners, Sounders, or Seahawks victory with a stroll north to Altstadt (209 First Ave S; altstadtseattle.com), open until 2am on weekends. This German-style bier hall invites conversation over a boot of beer. If you’re fresh off a Storm or Reign win, McMenamins (8200 Roy St, Ste 105; mcmenamins.com) is the place to toast with a Terminator Stout.
Start the day the right way—caffeinated. La Marzocco (472 First Ave N; lamarzoccousa.com) offers a curated collection of roasters in an expansive space at Seattle Center, while Elm Coffee Roasters (240 Second Ave S; elmcoffeeroasters.com) is renowned for its expert pulls of espresso and small-batch teas.
The local teams may be away, but you can still head to T-Mobile Park and Lumen Field for a behind-the-scenes tour (dates vary by season and game schedule). Opt for the 10:30am timeslot to see the fields, press boxes, dugouts, and more before the game starts.
Settle into any of Seattle’s sports bars to truly experience the fervor of local fans. Quality Athletics (*121 S King St; qualityathletics.com), Elysian Fields (542 First Ave S; elysianbrewing.com), The Hawks Nest (1028 First Ave S; hawksnestbar.com), and Ballard Loft (5105 Ballard Ave NW; ballardloft.com) are all great bets for beer, bites, and big-screen TVs.
Bask in the post-game glow with an extra round of drinks. Victory sure tastes sweet.
