One of our favorite GeekWire events — our annual summer rooftop BBQ and Sounders Day party — makes its return next Tuesday, Sept. 14th on the spectacular deck of First Mode in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood.
Don’t miss the festivities, which includes stunning views, cool swag, surprise guest appearances, cold beverages, yummy BBQ and the first convening of the GeekWire community in over 18 months. Plus, the BBQ will be followed by a crucial Seattle Sounders FC semifinal Leagues Cup match against Santos Laguna at 7 p.m.
Tickets to the summer BBQ and the soccer match available here.
Bring out your team, and connect with GeekWire staff on the latest happenings in tech and hear pre-game remarks from Sounders FC majority owner Adrian Hanauer.
We’ll kick things off at 4 p.m. for the rooftop tailgate, and then wrap things up around 6:30 p.m. so those who are attending the Sounders match can walk the few steps to the north entrance of Lumen Field.
A huge thanks to First Mode for supporting our first event of 2021.
Of course given the current COVID situation, we’ve not fully returned to normal, so we are taking extra precautions for those who attend the pre-game party and the match. Proof of vaccination — either physical or digital cards — must be shown to enter the party. We are also following all masking guidelines for indoor activities, as well as large-scale events like the Sounders match. In addition, we’ll take temperature checks upon arrival to First Mode, provide ample hand sanitizer and direct most of the activities at the event to the beautiful outdoor spaces.
Please note this event is 21+, and see our full COVID policy in the FAQ on the event site.
