Last weekend, I went to the AMEX Hawk’s Island event. The event was held on a barge near Pier 66 in Seattle. I believe this is their 2nd year doing this. The first year was free I think. This year, they were charging $12 per card member, and each member could bring 3 guests ($12 per guest as well.) They did not send out tickets. They matched your name to a printed out list at the door. The event included 2 free drinks, some free snacks, and an opportunity to take photos with Seahawks’ legends.
I was mainly going for the experience of it; didn’t really care for the retired Seahawks players. The bracelet they gave you when entering had 2 tear-off drink tickets. Additional drinks were $7 each. OUCH! We all got the long island iced tea like drink, which was good. They had 3 snack options from local restaurants – there was a clam chowder station (delicious,) mini salad thing, and a pulled pork slider option (decent.)
My wife did get a photo and an autograph with Walter Jones. We stayed for about 30 minutes and left because it was kinda boring. I think if you had stayed, they would have shuttled you to the stadium. Would I go next year? NAH! It just wasn’t worth $12. I was hoping for some take-home swag, which I do believe they gave out last year.
