DOWNTOWN— What's better than watching a Seahawks game on the couch in the comfort of your own filth?

The Met is throwing a party on December 22 and 29 for Hawks home games, featuring bomb options like hanger steak and eggs, king crab eggs benedict, the 12th Man Bloody Mary, and more. The Met opens at 9:50 a.m. both days. [EaterWire]

CAPITOL HILL— It's game over for The Canterbury's tale this Sunday, December 15, according to CHS. After more than 37 years, owner Stefanie Roberge says that with the lease running out, it's time to go into the knight, er, night sooner than later. Capitol Hill Housing decided not to renew their lease, but new owners will be taking over shortly to give it a facelift and bring 'er back to the masses. "I'm hoping to run into a lot of old customers," the owner tells the blog about the final days. If you want one last peek at the old joint, you have five days. [CHS]
