Coffee lovers and fans of Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis rejoice: The two stars are hitting the fictional campaign trail to promote their new film, The Campaign, starting in Seattle — and they're looking to win you over with a cup of joe.
This Thursday, the duo kicks off their political parody tour at Local Color Café in Pike Place Market at 1:45 p.m. In an attempt to appeal to the java-loving citizens of Seattle, they will be serving coffee in order to "win your vote."
The "opponents" will be visiting other cities including Fort Worth, Texas, Chicago, Philadelphia, and of course, Washington, D.C., where they will playfully engage in other politically inspired events — including a recreation of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The comedy features Ferrell and Galifianakis as opponents for a North Carolina congressional seat. Just when you thought you’d heard enough political talk, the film releases August 10, coinciding with the imminent presidential elections.
Pike Place Market is home to the original Starbucks location, which still attracts massive lines to this day. (We can imagine the lines will be plenty long to meet the funny men themselves.) But if you want to get your coffee fix without the crowds, Pike Place features several other places where you can get a cup of joe, including Local Color Café, which features a large café area, an in-house art studio, and award-winning coffee from local roasters Café Vita.
