The best places to get brunch in Seattle for opening day

3 Apr

On Tuesday, April 4, is the day that Seattle Mariner fans have been looking forward to since the season ended. Of course I am talking about opening day. For the 8th year in a row we will be watching “King” Felix take the mound. This year he will once again have a new person behind home-plate, Chris Iannetta, to catch all the strikes he will be blazing past the batters.

This year the Mariners will be opening in Texas to play a three-game series against the Rangers. Since they are starting on the road that means no going to stadium to be around other fans, hearing the roar of the crowd, picking the winner of the virtual hydro race, or enjoying the stadium food. So, if you want that stadium fill you need to go to one of the find sports bar & grilles around Seattle. Luckily for us there are plenty of places around the greater Seattle area where we can join others to cheer on our team and get great food.

  • Spitfire: Located at 2219 4th ave. in downtown Seattle is the Spitfire where you will be to join other fans as you watch the game on the 25 big-screen TVs. There you are cheering on Felix Hernandez, Robinson Cano, and the rest of the team while enjoy great food. Some of the yummy items you might choose include sriracha pork belly bites, nachos, smoked salmon club, or the Spitfire burger.
  • Rookie sports bar & grill: If you live in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle then you should try the Rookie sports bar at 3820 Ferdinand St. There you can enjoy fried mac & cheese, triple play pita, the rookie burger; a bacon , egg, lettuce, and tomato on sourdough; or many more yummy items. As you dine you can watch the Mariner game on the 12 big screen TVs.
  • Sluggers: When you are going out to watch the opening day game where better than a place called Sluggers. Not only does it have a great name for watching the ball game it is also located near both of Seattle’s stadiums. While you are watching the game along with other fans you can enjoy one of their base hit burgers, Chicken cordon bleu bites, drink a top deck margarita, or much more. Location of the Slugger is 538 1st avenue.
  • Jimmy’s on first: Located inside the Silver Cloud hotel, across the street from Seattle’s two stadiums, is Jimmy’s on first. Since the mid 1980’s it has been a fan favorite to go watch the games. As your cheering on Felix and the rest of the Mariners you can dine on their fine menu items that include: ham & cheese omelets, mini cheese burger sliders, a stacked blt, and much more
  • NYP bar & grill: If you are looking for a place with a gluten-free menu then NYP is the place for you. They have five locations including one in the city of Seattle at 500 Mercer St. There you can cheer on the Mariners while chowing down on pizza, sliders, pulled pork nachos, sweet potato fries, and much more.
