I posted about the big brouhaha over Canadians making major milk runs to the border from British Columbia, specifically to the Bellingham Costco in Washington state. It quickly became a national news story, what with Washingtonians unhappy about the crowded parking and shopping conditions, and even requesting their own hours. 

Two Seattle hotels have come to the rescue of the milk-thirsty Canadians. The Roosevelt and The Paramount Hotel, both Coast Hotels that has properties in the US and Canada (Alberta, BC and the Northwest Territories), are saying that Seattle has "got enough milk to go around and we don't mind sharing." For a limited time only (no expiration date was given), both The Roosevelt and The Paramount Hotel are offering Canadian visitors the Milk Run package that they hope will be moo-sic to their ears! Here's the deal:


Accommodation in any choice of room
Free parking or a $25 dining credit
Gallon of free milk (provided by a $5 Target gift card)
PROMO CODE: TYCANADA
