Seattle Is Trying to Poach Our Tourists

Hey, Seattle, get your own damn tourists!

Seattle's Convention and Visitor's Bureau has launched an annoyingly clever campaign to poach tourist away from San Francisco, because apparently they can't convince the international masses that Seattle — not San Francisco — is the place to be.

The campaign will infiltrate San Francisco tomorrow night, when posters advertising Seattle and all its coolness will be draped across San Francisco's most obvious tourist hubs, including the Powell Street BART station.

Essentially, Seattle hopes that come Wednesday morning, tourists will take one look at those posters and jump right out of their cable car to make that 12-hour (beautiful) trek to Seattle where it's probably raining.
