I'm going to be in Seattle for the first two games and need a bit of advice. I typically watch the games with a great rowdy krewe at the Rendezvous in New Orleans and need to find, to whatever extent possible, a similar(ish) group of welcoming, hard drinking, unapologetically loud whagon blasters to watch the games with.
When I lived in Seattle about 5 years ago or so, I'd always go to Sports. That would be normally be fine, but I don't think I can handle being seated during the Jets game... I tend to pace, yell, curse and smoke a whole lot during Bills games. And it's worse when they're playing the Jets. I was raised in Jersey, surrounded by Jets fans... I'm sure you can imagine what that's like.
I've found two Bills Backer's bars in Seattle: Kelly O'Brien's Lounge in Ballard/Fremont area and Jillian's Billiard Club at Broad and Westlake, right by the southern tip of Lake Union.
So my question to the Rumbling Seattleites: Where should I watch the first two Bills games?
(I was going to have this be a poll, but the 'attach poll' button seems to have disappeared.... or I'm totally loosing my mind. Can't find it in firefox or safari.)
Post recommendations in comments below. Options are:
- Kelly O'Brien's Lounge in Ballard
- Jillian's Billiard Club just south of the lake
- Sports, where I can't pace, yell, or smoke
Thanks in advance for any help!
