In Seattle the UM bar is Rocksports in West Seattle. Here's the address: 4209 SW Alaska St., Seattle, WA 98116-4524.

Rocksports is kind of like a BW3 but not a corporate chain. It's big and has TVs everywhere. The bar is divided into several rooms, of which the main one, dominated by the Michigan contingent, always has the Michigan game on a massive projection screen. They show other games on some of the smaller TVs scattered around the place.

The place is always packed on game days, so it can be hard to get a table and the service can get pretty slow. They serve average bar food and usually have a decent breakfast spread for the games that start at 9:00 Pacific. It's reasonably kid-friendly (provided you get there early enough to score a table).

While South in Santa Monica is the Alumni Club's official LA West Side bar, Pitcher House in Redondo Beach is the South Bay bar. It's quasi-official in that the LA Alumni Club's newsletter cites South as the official bar, but suggests Pitcher House for those of us in the South Bay that don't want to slog through traffic to Santa Monica.
