In a bid to boost the city’s tourism economy, a few eateries have announced that they’ll be accepting passengers for free on their property, but not the entire city.
Skippers seafood, for instance, has announced that it will be accepting tickets for free for all customers who want to park in Seattle’s downtown core.
“We’re hoping to get some people from the outer areas to try our restaurant,” the restaurant’s president and general manager, Matt Kraszewski, told the Associated Press in a phone interview.
“There’s a ton of people out there who don’t drive in the city.”
Skippers is a restaurant that specializes in seafood, which Kraszekewski says has a reputation for being a popular place to eat in Seattle, especially when it comes to the seafood that they serve.
The restaurant has become so popular, in fact, that Kraszes is looking to expand to more locations.
“I think Seattle is such a fantastic place for people to be,” he said.

But I think for now, we’re just trying to be a place for those who are visiting the city and are interested in eating at some of the more popular restaurants, so we’re hoping for people who are just going to enjoy the atmosphere, the food and the experience.”
