In honor of the Seahawks(!), drinking, America, and YOU, we proclaim the Monday after the Super Bowl shall henceforth be known as National Hangover Day. It’s a day for hangovers to be celebrated, embraced, and combated in the most enjoyable of ways -- namely, eating delicious food, and possibly drinking more. The ultimate goal? Getting the entire country a day off work, a beautiful dream you can help make happen by signing this petition to our sports-loving President right here and tweeting it.
The immediate goal though? Fixing that hangover, which is why we've got Seattle's best Bloody Marys right here...
The moderately swanky Capitol Hill steakhouse is hooking you up with a not-at-all-moderate Mary that's basically a liquid meal, thanks to bacon, shrimp, and a shton of veggies bursting out of the glass.
Every Sunday (at least during football season), this Seattle Center-adjacent sports bar opens up a build-your-own Bloody Bar stocked with 70 different ingredients designed for AM alcohol consumption, including 32 different hot sauces.
Served in a Mason jar, Skillet’s version of the Bloody Mary comes resplendent with their very own bacon jam. Even better? Skillet serves this bad boy all day, every day.
The supposed originator of our beloved Red Robin, Capitol Hill’s Sam’s Tavern garnishes their Bloody Marys with pickled asparagus, a mini kabob of tomato, cheese, sausage, and… drumroll please… lunch, in the form of a slider. Oh, and did we mention it's made with bacon-flavored vodka?!
Every Sunday, King’s Hardware busies itself playing doctor to throngs of hungover sob stories with $4 Bloody Marys all day, though the pro-move is their Bloody Maria, which involves habanero tequila and touts a housemade Bloody Mary mix, TabbyCat pickled veggies, and lime.
Hattie’s Hat does not mess around when it comes to Bloody Marys - in fact, their weekend brunch menu reps seven different versions (one of which involves smoked salmon, another with rosemary) of this hair-of-the-dog staple.
Hit Tom Douglas’s Assembly Hall for TanakaSan’s Akanone Carrot Shochu/ vodka/ carrot/ chile/ tomato/ cilantro combo -- it's fresh, spicy, and potent and just what the doctor ordered, if by doctor you mean... um, you.
This nautically inspired boozer from the Po Dogs crew is serving a slew of craft 'tails, including the Anchor Caesar, which, in addition to being what Roman emperors started calling Nero for weighing down their reputation, is basically a Clamato Bloody Mary thickened w/ Peruvian and chipotle peppers.

Plopped within a working waterfront, this nautical-themed bar is the place for craft cocktails and drinks to go bottoms-up.
This American eatery serves up classic dishes with a twist (like their Voodoo Burger with Cajun spices!) and is known for their legendary brunch, with their signature Rosemary Mary.
The guys behind Po Dogs/ Grim's/ Auto Battery offer a menu of southern-inspired steakhouse-style eats, plus delectable seafood options, which you can enjoy in their plush, rustic space.
This memorabilia- and flatscreen-heavy sports emporium from the guy behind Seastar and John Howie Steak (quick, guess what his name is! No, silly, it's John Howie!) solidified its place on our list by recently improving its already awesome menu of dude-approved eats with the addition of apps like Crispy Corn & Jalapeno Fritter w/ honey butter, and breaking-fasts like the Canadian and regular bacon-topped Three Little Pigs, too many of which'll cause you to huff and puff and...god you're a fatty.
A food truck-gone-fine establishment in Seattle, serving up amazing New American comfort food, such as sandwiches, cheesy grits with pork belly, and waffles with all sorts of meat on them, and the like. Airy digs and plenty of seating make this a great spot for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Sam's Tavern is a tribute to an old bar -- the dive that became the original Red Robin -- and gets its old-timey roadhouse feel from an owner whose family started those colorfully descriptive bird-themed burger joints.
King's Hardware is decked out with taxidermy and stocked with regional brews, but the rustic pub's main attraction is its tasty and creative burger options, like the peanut butter and bacon-based After School Special. Aside from classic and specialty burgers, there are hot wings, onion rings, and similar greased-up "sidekicks" on the menu. You can bring your beer and burger outside and chill on the patio, or stay inside and challenge your friends to a round of skee-ball.
Tom Douglas's complex is a trifecta of deliciousness: a modern Asian restaurant (TanakaSan), a gourmet market & deli (Home Remedy), and a fresh-juice and coffee purveyor (Assembly Hall Juice & Coffee).
