As Hurricane Irma continues to pose a threat to South Florida and with conditions expected to deteriorate, the Palm Beach County Seminole Club is sorry to say that its game-watching parties for Florida State vs. Louisiana-Monroe have been canceled.
The game was recently moved to a noon kickoff because of the storm, allowing enough time for fans to safely travel to and from the game and prepare for the storm.
Initially, Grease Burger Bar intended to stay open for the duration of the game after consulting. However, in the interest of public safety and with the effects of the storm expected to impact South Florida sooner, the restaurant's ownership group has made a decision to close for the weekend.
Mellow Mushroom in Delray Beach previously announced that it would be closed.
The club's first priority is the safety of its volunteers, members, employees of the venues that host the game-watching parties throughout the season and their families.
Of course, the Seminoles will still open their home schedule with true freshman and Palm Beach County resident James Blackman as the starting quarterback. Hopefully you'll get the opportunity to cheer on your team from Tallahassee, in the comfort of your home or wherever else you may be.
The club is hopeful that things will return to normal Sept. 16 when the 10th-ranked Seminoles host No. 16 Miami.
No. 3 Florida State opens the 2017 season against top-ranked Alabama in one of the most anticipated games of all-time.The Seminoles will participate in the inaugural Chick-fil-A Kickoff at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta this Saturday at 8 p.m. They'll face Alabama for the first time since a 21-14 victory in Jacksonville in 2007.
If you aren't one of the lucky ones able to go to the game, join your fellow Palm Beach County Seminoles at Grease Burger Bar on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach or Mellow Mushroom off Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach.
Grease will offer a 25% percent discount and $2 touchdown shots, while Mellow Mushroom will offer a 15% discount on food and various drink specials to all those FSU fans wearing the required wristbands. There will also be door prizes for the chance to win FSU football tickets.Saturday's prizes include tickets to the home opener against Louisiana-Monroe and the Sept. 16 home game against 18th-ranked Miami. Proceeds from your donations benefit the Palm Beach County Seminole Club scholarship fund, which provides two scholarships each year to local students who have chosen to continue their education at FSU. All fans are encouraged to arrive early as there is no reserved seating.
