Seattle loves their Seahawks and during this time of the year, it’s hard to ignore all of the 12th Man mayhem. And why would you want to? Even the most casual football fans might be coaxed to participate if there’s something in it for them. And there is! Round up your little Hawks fans, throw on your matching Russell Wilson jerseys and scroll down for these Blue Friday deals at local shops eager to spread the Hawks love.

Gear up for a Win at Trophy Cupcakes
Whether it’s bedtime, screen time or a dinnertime comprised of only foods that are white, parents and kids don’t see eye-to-eye on, well, a lot. But one of the things we can all agree on at the end of a long week is TGIF, and that, is cause for celebration. Treat yourself and your kiddos (and show off your support for the home team) with a round of 12th Fan cupcakes from Trophy Cupcakes. The Seahawks-themed sweets are available for pre-order throughout the week. Oh, and they deliver, so basically everybody wins!

Good to Know: Each dozen includes 6 Vanilla and 6 Chocolate Vanilla cupcakes topped with edible gridiron images edged in green and blue sprinkles, topped with a football pick. Check out the full Café Trophy menu here.

Order the Blue Plate Special at Ivar’s
The mere mention of a steaming bowl of clam chowder on a blustery fall day is enough to send locals running for the nearest Ivar’s. Heck, we were practically weaned on the stuff, and now our own offspring can’t get enough. The venerable seafood outfit is quintessentially Seattle, so it’s no surprise they’re huge Seahawks fans, too. And they’ll prove it: on Fridays, roll your brood into any seafood bar location wearing blue or green for access to rotating family-friendly 12th Clam Specials like $12 for three chowder bowls and $12 for two entrees.

Good to Know: Ivar’s Acres of Clams, Salmon House and Mukilteo Landing full service restaurants have their own Blue Friday specials, too! Click here to find this month’s specials.
