President Barack Obama will make a pitstop in the Bay Area tomorrow to attend an afternoon campaign fundraiser in San Francisco at...the W Hotel? (That's like hosting a dinner for Prince Charles at Blowfish Sushi, yes? Not that Blowfish or the W are terrible. It's just, you know, the St. Regis is but a few steps down the block. Anyway.) According to SF Appeal, "Ticket prices for the event--which will feature a performance by Jack Johnson--start at $5,000 and roughly 200 people are set to attend."
As with any presidential appearance so comes ire: protest group The World Can't Wait will rally outside the SOMA hotel "to protest U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan and the Obama administration's funding of other military operations in the Middle East."
