We will have some chairs available although folks are welcome to bring their own chairs or blankets.” (4201 SW Juneau)

    fyi…everything I’ve seen says the President is landing at SeaTac – not BFI.  

    From the white house blog:

    6:20 PM

      Yes, I see that now. He does occasionally land at Sea-Tac – so we’ll update our references.

Sorry, comment time is over.
