Presidential road jam traffic coming back to Seattle

Thanks Obama

When you're president, you get a lot of cool perks. A bunch of armed guards that you get to boss around, a private jet, a helicopter and a bed that flips over and turns into a ping pong table (that is what I would do if I was president...also it would have pizza on it...and beer).

The free car must be really nice or something because every time the Prez brings his whip to town, traffic stops in all directions for awhile. Such is the case this Friday, June 24. 

This, along with Seattle's Pride Weekend (Sunday, June 26) spell another traffic nightmare this weekend, but like a cool nightmare because the president of the United States is chillin' in our city and pride is super important and fun.

It's also pretty cool Barry O was invited to Seattle Pride. We'll see if President Obama becomes Grand Marshal Obama for a day!

Here at The End, we understand it's the little things that get you through traffic, which is why we created Traffic Toolkit 1.0 during the #99Closure. Now, we're back with The End Traffic Toolkit 2.0, specifically tailored for President Obama's trip to Seattle and Pride Festival fun on Capitol Hill and around Seattle!

So sit back, relax and get ready to have a fun weekend celebrating pride, and maybe you'll catch a glimpse of the president's motorcade. Get ready, plan accordingly, save Traffic Toolkit 2.0 and please, please just take the bus.
