Parking, Traffic and Hashtag Battle


Dear Startup Weekend Seattle Attendees,

This is it! Startup Weekend Seattle’s kick-off is tonight!

If you are driving to Playhouse/Intiman Theatre at Seattle Center tonight, here is a link to the Seattle Center Parking information page with options and maps available. Mercer Garage is the closest to the Playhouse.

We want to remind you that we have some traffic alerts this weekend!

  • 99/viaduct are closed starting at 10pm tonight thru Monday at 5am.
  • The Mercer Street ramps on/off of I-5 are closed starting 11pm tonight thru Monday at 5am.

This means we are limited to back roads so everyone should plan accordingly.

You might want to get a private driver to come to Intiman Theatre. Don’t forget that one of our awesome sponsors is Uber. They are offering a 1st ride free (up to $50) for new Uber users. Sweet, huh! Download the Uber app to your phone and enter the promo code “SEASUWKND” or you can sign up here.

Last minute advice: Include #SWsea in all your event-related tweets during the weekend! SW Seattle is competing in a huge “hashtag battle” with other Startup Weekend events. Defend your city’s startup pride by competing against #SWtaipei, #SWbangalore, #SWlondon and many others!

See you tonight!
The SW Seattle Team
