Hawks Vs. Bears at Al's Tavern

Fresh off a loss to San Francisco, and with starters Walter Jones, Marcus Trufant, Lofa Tatupu, Leroy Hill, and Matt Hasselbeck all nursing early-season injuries that stand to keep each player out of action for varying spells, Seahawk fans could be forgiven for seeking some early season sorrow-drowning, especially with a formidable Chicago squad visiting this week. So why not drown cheaply? A longstanding neighborhood watering hole with a peculiar mural depicting Shilshole Bay’s evolution over time, Al’s is more cozy neighborhood dive/hipster haunt than sports bar. That said, it has one of the best sports-oriented drinking deals in town: Whenever the Seahawks score a touchdown, schooners of Rainier can be had for a 25 cents apiece, courtesy of owner Max Genereaux. (The same deal applies during Husky games.) Or you can buy a ticket, brave the traffic down in SoDo, and pay $8.25 a cup. MIKE SEELY
