Coming to Saturday’s awards banquet? A few things to know …

The 2011 Excellence in Journalism Awards Banquet is just days away, and we’re very excited to welcome you to Safeco Field on Saturday, May 21!

Before you make your way to the ballpark, please be sure to review the information below. And remember, there’s still time to get tickets!

  • Please remember that two lanes of the Alaskan Way Viaduct remain closed, and downtown Seattle traffic can be a challenge.
  • We expect Saturday night’s Sounders game to make street parking around the stadiums a challenge. We recommend parking in the Safeco Field Garage, located on the corner of on Edgar Martinez Drive and First Avenue. Cost is $10, cash or check only. For more on parking, including directions and maps, visit
  • From the garage, enter the stadium on the third base side. Follow the signs to the Diamond Club. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., dinner and drinks are served at 6 p.m. and the awards presentation begins at 7 p.m.
  • Finally, please remember that Saturday night’s awards presentation will take place in the stands of Safeco, an open-air stadium. The roof will only be closed if it is raining, so please dress appropriately (women might want to avoid short skirts) and remember to bring a jacket.
