Former President Clinton is in Seattle Friday for a fundraiser benefiting his wife’s campaign, and his trip here included an afternoon moseying around Capitol Hill.

The afternoon fundraising event at the neighborhood’s Century Ballroom was closed to the media. Ticket prices ranged between $250 to $2,700. But once it was over, Seattleites documented Clinton’s afternoon, enjoying vegan “scout” ice cream from Molly Moon and reportedly offering Seahawks commentary at The Elliott Bay Book Company.

The surprise visit fired up neighborhood dwellers and in turn, their social feeds.
