Come celebrate Ivar Haglund’s 107th birthday today. Enjoy a $1.07 entrée, when you purchase another. But, pssst…say “Happy Birthday Ivar!” to get the deal. To properly celebrate “the person who most exemplified Seattle,” the first 107 of you at each location will also receive a complimentary cupcake with your meal. Don’t wait though, this birthday bash is today only (that is Tuesday, March 20th). Go to Ivar’s Birthday Bash for more details on today’s celebration.
Speaking of Seattle, Ivar’s storied life left an indelible mark on the Emerald City. Between starting Seattle’s first aquarium and fish n’chips stand on Pier 54 in 1938, opening Ivar’s Acres of Clams in 1939, pushing a baby seal around in a baby buggy during Christmas of 1940, or purchasing the Smith Tower in 1976, Ivar Haglund never did anything half-heartedly. This is precisely why Ivar’s continues to celebrate his birthday whole-heartedly. So today we tip our Captain’s Hat to one of the great personalities Seattle calls its own.
