Get the party hats, or captain’s hats, ready!

On Tuesday, March 15, hungry seafood fans can visit any of the three full-service Ivar’s or any of the 23 Ivar’s Seafood Bar restaurants (including the Federal Way location at 2004 S. 320th St.) in celebration of what would have been the 111th birthday of Ivar Haglund, the restaurant’s founder.

Throughout the day, fans who purchase one regularly priced entrée and wish Ivar “Happy Birthday” will receive a second entrée of their choice – from a special birthday menu – for just $1.11. In addition to the birthday discounts, Ivar’s will also treat the first 111 guests at each location to a celebratory strawberry-guava cheesecake dessert made from Cakes of Paradise in Seattle.

Fans can also get in on the birthday action by striking their best Ivar pose! In honor of Ivar and his stoic garb, fans can pick up and assemble a special-edition replica Ivar captain’s hat. A limited supply of hats will be available at all Ivar’s Seafood Bar and full-service locations, excluding stadiums, as well as for download at Ivars.com. Guests who post their photo wearing the captain’s hat to Ivar’s Restaurants Facebook, Instagram or Twitter page – and include “#IvarBD” – will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win $111 Ivar’s Gift Cards.

The birthday contest begins March 9 and ends March 16. Additional rules and details will be available at Ivars.com.
