First and foremost, remember that 99/Aurora is closed from Friday night through Wednesday morning. It will be a significant traffic impact – roads and busses will be affected, and expect traffic to spill onto Queen Anne. A great excuse to stick around Queen Anne this weekend, where there are plenty of free events to go around.
