Where to watch the Packers and Seahawks tonight

The NFL gets back in business tonight. Whether you're cheering for the Packers, the Seahawks or just like free beer, here are a few parties to check out.

Town Tavern's NFL kickoff party means free Bud Light (while it lasts) and a hot wing buffet beginning at 8 p.m. During the game, specials include $3 Bud and Bud Light bottles, $10 Bud Light pitchers, and $15 wing-and-pitcher combos. Look out for photo booths, free swag and giveaways.

Duffy's Irish Pub has long been a Green Bay Packers bar, and for the first game of the season, the Vermont Avenue bar offers free brats from 7 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. Drink specials include $18 Yuengling pitchers and $16 buckets of Miller Lite. The game will be on all 16 TVs with full sound – and you can watch the pregame, too, beginning at 5 p.m.

After sharing the Penn Quarter Sports Tavern with Denver Broncos fans last year, which made for some interesting Super Bowl viewing, the local Seattle Seahawks fan club has moved its official Hawks Nest to Acre 121, where they'll have special cocktails, $5 beers, and a $20 all-you-can-drink Heineken special. There's also a special football food menu, which you can see here.
