The Irish know how to Party!

Hello all Sea Hawkers and Seahawks fans!

With the season starting in just a few short days we wanted to go over some of our new ‘realities’ here at the Chymist. It is very important to us that we set everyone’s expectations for this season as realistically as we can, but please remember, this is still an extremely fluid situation and things can change from week to week, game to game and even day to day. We beg everyone’s patience as we figure this all out together.

Unfortunately we will not be able to accept reservations. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis and be based by party size. We can’t ask or expect people to be willing to share their table space so we will have group size minimums for seating at some of our larger tables. If people CHOOSE to share their table space, that is entirely up to them and those willing to share with them, but it is our recommendation, that for everyone’s safety, that they do not.

We are requiring all guests to help us follow the governor’s and CDC’s guidelines for restaurant patronage; masks must be worn at all times someone is not at their table, groups will be held to ten people or less at any single table and all guests not together will need to keep a safe social distance of 6 feet apart.

We currently have seating for 100 guests, or about 40% of what we normally have. If we hit our capacity we will not be able to allow anyone else into the restaurant, again, per Governor Ducey’s orders. There can be no standing room or adding, moving or combining of tables.

We have absolutely no idea of what we can expect for turn out this year and will have to play it largely by ear. We ask everyone who wants to come in for Seahawks games to follow a single mantra; “Please be cool.” It is very hard for us, being in the hospitality business to now have to ‘police’ our restaurant, but that’s the position we have been put in, so that we may be able to stay open and maintain our vital business licenses.

We will be opening next Sunday, September 13th at 9 am for the 10 am kick off. In addition to our game-day menu we will be offering a limited breakfast menu from 9 am until 10:30 am.

We appreciate you all and hope that we see you and can have a great season together during these difficult times.

Slainte & Go Hawks!

Sincerely, Matt Brennan, owner, Skeptical Chymist
