Too soon? Seattle encourages Denver to come visit with free coffee

Seattle is a wonderful place live and visit, even if just for the weekend. Visit Seattle knows this and has set out on a new marketing and advertising campaign to encourage people to spend 2 Days in Seattle.

This morning saw phase one of this campaign, by treating hundreds of people in Denver and Salt Lake City to free coffee drinks, with to-go sleeves inscribed with the slogan "Make the ultimate coffee run - plan your trip at"

Everyone loves free coffee, but we're wondering if this was a little too soon for poor Denver. We can only imagine what horrible things were done to those coffee sleeves by some Broncos fans whose hearts are still aching over Superbowl Sunday.
