American Express Hawks Island 2016
Attention Seattle readers! American Express Hawks Island 2016 is coming on October 16. I attended last year and had a blast. This year it is going to be held on 10/16/16 prior to the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Atlanta Falcons at Century Link Field.
The official website is oddly lacking any details at this point. However, I reached out to Amex via Twitter and was told to call 1-800-445-7374. I asked about the event and the rep was able to reserve me two tickets. The event is free. She just needed the card number from one of my Amex cards. I’ve been told it needs to be an Amex issued card (ie can’t be issued from a bank).
Last year it was held at Pier 66 on the Seattle waterfront. Since there is no information online yet; I can’t confirm the location but would guess it is in the same spot. I will update this post once I receive my confirmation letter in the mail.
Rumor has it that it is returning to Pier 66 from 9:00am to 1:00pm with a free shuttle to the Clink for the game.
Last year’s confirmation letter came via UPS:
As of today (9/30/16) there are still tickets available. I would suggest calling in now before this gets posted all over social media if you want to attend.
Planning to attend American Express Hawks Island 2016? If you reserve a ticket, let me know in the comments below. I’ll see you there!
