We invite you to come on by and have a great time with the best Packer Fans in Washington!! You’ll see how much we have!

PACKERS EVERYWHERE TO HOST FREE PEP RALLY EVENT FOR FANS IN SEATTLE SATURDAY, JAN. 17

Pep rally to include alumni autographs and giveaways

Packers fans 21 years and older are invited to bring the spirit of Green Bay to the Seattle area a day early to a free Packers Everywhere Pep Rally on Saturday, Jan. 17.

The festivities will take place at the Mustard Seed Grill & Pub at 5608 119th Ave SE, Bellevue, Wash., from 4 to 5 p.m. PT. The Mustard Seed is home to the “Northwest Packer Backers,” a large group of fans in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest who gather each week to watch the Packers play.

Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will take part in the pre-gameday excitement at the event by greeting fans along with Wayne Larrivee, the radio voice of the Packers. Packers alumni Josh Bidwell and Ken Ruettgers will also be on hand to socialize with fans, sign autographs and discuss their thoughts on the next day’s game against the Seahawks. A round-table discussion with Packers.com writers Vic Ketchman, Mike Spofford and the audience will conclude the event.

“We’re very excited to have the opportunity to host a pep rally in the Seattle area for the NFC Championship game,” said Joan Malcheski, director of the Packers Media Group and brand engagement. “It will give enthusiastic fans a chance to share their excitement about the game and visit with Packers alumni and Mark Murphy. We are looking forward to meeting more Packers fans from Seattle at one of our more than 2,100 Packers Everywhere establishments.”

Packers Everywhere, through its website packerseverywhere.com, enables Packers fans to find official Packers establishments around the world where they can watch games and connect with fellow fans.

NWPB Pep Rally and Tailgate was a great success!

We held two incredible events prior to the Packer game for the Pep Rally and Tailgate! Thank you to all of you who were able to come attend and participate in the Pep Rally and/or the Tailgate! The Pep Rally was a blast and it was a great pleasure to have Steve “The Owner” Tate and Mrs. Tate, in addition to St. Vince and his wife, Cheese Louise join us at the Pep Rally. Also a big Green and Gold thank you to Evan “Tex” Western for joining us and putting the word out about our Pep Rally and Tailgate on the Packer blog, ACME PACKING COMPANY! All Packer fans should check out this Packer blog, lots of great Packer stuff.

The Tailgate was an awesome event and a great success! Our tailgate was visited by many people including Mr. & Mrs. Crosby (Parents of Mason) and Mason’s wife, Molly. Also we were visited by Steve “The Owner” Tate in addition to NBC to do some interviews pre-game and Evan Siegle of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Once again, word spread like wildfire about the Northwest Packer Backer tailgate. We had many visitors from many, many different states and a few provinces of Canada! It was great to see the vast number of Packer fans joining us! We again held the BIGGEST AND BEST TAILGATE IN SEATTLE! The turnout was about 600 – 1000 Packer fans! Great job Packer fans showing Seattle how us Packer fans tailgate and support our team! It was very rewarding when I was able to speak with many of you who attended and express you gratitude and enjoyment at the tailgate. Again, thank you all for joining us!

SPECIAL THANKS to all those who volunteered to make this a great success! I want to recognize the following people for the work they had given volunteering at the tailgate. They are Terry & Tammy, Tim & Evonne, Keri, Angel and my wife Traci. Thank you all, I couldn’t have done this without your help! We have Pep Rally and Tailgate pics have been posted! Please view them Pep Rally pics here and Tailgate pics here. If you are unable to view the pictures, you will need to submit a request to join the Northwest Packer Backer Facebook group.

GO PACK!
