Rain City Burger

Super Bowl Weekend is here, it’s not really the time for fancy restaurants or cafés!
While the whole city is cheering for the SEAHAWKS, there is a place in town that always wears the city team’s colors: Rain City Burger. This is a very good place to have a burger.

You can order a MARINERS burger (Avocado, bacon, Cheddar cheese), a SOUNDERS Burger (Cream cheese, jalapeño, bacon, Pepper Jack cheese), or a HUSKIES Burger (Cheddar and Swiss cheese, caramelized onion, Rain City Hot Sauce).

If you are a really hungry Seahawks fan, get a 12TH MAN burger (Two beef patties, four slices of bacon, and two slices of American cheese!). They are really good and there are plenty of other unique options on the menu, even vegetarians burgers.

And of course when you are there, you can watch the game…

The Mask that inspired Seahawks logo

The native mask carved in the late 19th on Vancouver Island that inspired the original Seattle Seahawks logo is now on exhibit in Seattle.
In 1975 the NFL commissioned a logo for the newly formed Seattle Seahawks team. The designers were inspired by the northwest art and especially by this transformation mask depicting an eagle.

If you want to see the mask, learn more about it and the ceremony during which it was worn, go to the Burke Museum. The mask is part of the current exhibit: “Here and Now – Native Artists Inspired”.

I’ll write more about the exhibit in the following days.
