Seasonal prep for the mind, body + soul.
As the days grow shorter and the evenings darker, we’re doing everything we can to take care of ourselves in preparation. Here are a few ways—from “sun” bathing at City Sweats to oyster shucking at Scout—you might lift the spirits and get rejuvenated as we transition into the new season.
MLS Playoffs: #DefendOurCup
The hashtag used by the Seattle Sounders FC as the Sounders clinch their 9th consecutive playoff berth and attempt to repeat as MLS champions. After a definitive 3-0 win against the Colorado Rapids on Sunday, the Sounders enter MLS Playoffs in second place in the Western Conference.
American Express once again held its annual “Hawks Island” in Seattle on October 1st, hosting several hundred American Express Card Members and American Express-accepting merchants on a 200-foot+ barge (the length of more than two basketball courts) at Pier 66. For the second consecutive year we had the chance to attend this fun pre-game experience. Hawks Island is definitely a must go if you are a casual or diehard Seahawks fan like myself.
Benefit concerts, Seahawks parties, Icelandic fetes & more seasonal fun.
Fall’s here, and we’re not mad about it. Seattle had a pretty awesome run this summer, plus the list of things to do, see, eat and hear this autumn is looking mighty appealing.
UW Football is underway with three games—and three wins—in favor of the Huskies. A favorite among locals, Ivar’s sailgating is a one-of-a-kind experience for Husky football fans. Fans arrive in style (and well fed) by sailgating to Husky stadium during each home game.
With NFL season less than a week away, Dooney & Bourke has a new line of women’s handbags and accessories for the Seattle Seahawks. Dooney & Bourke has created fashionable ways female fans can incorporate fandom into their everyday life. A way for women to rock their feminine side, while still cheering on their favorite NFL team. The Seahawks face the Oakland Raiders at 7:00pm tonight for the last preseason game. Go Hawks!
Getting to know Earl Benjamin of SoulCycle Bellevue.
You may have heard the buzz that SoulCycle has come to Seattle, landing itself over on the eastside at a brand-new, bright and bustling Bellevue studio. We thought it would be fun to chat with an instructor to hear what it takes to lead the masses at this energetic hub of sweat, music and high-powered pedaling.
It was a valiant effort against some steep odds, but the Seattle Seahawks fell to the Atlanta Falcons 20-36 in the NFC Divisional Playoff game. Key penalties kept Seattle from piecing together any momentum, while the Falcons’ offense led by the majestic Matt Ryan was unstoppable and undeniably proved to be the best in the entire National Football League.
The last time the Atlanta Falcons football team took on the Seattle Seahawks football team, the Seattle Seahawks football team won the football game. That in of itself is a fact, but there is no way to predict the next outcome based on the previous outcome.
Thomas Rawls pretty much “rope-a-doped” us all. His 161 yards on 27 carries against the Detroit Lions in the NFC Wild Card game on Saturday was an unexpected burst that was the perfect scenario for the Seattle Seahawks.
