Why Late Night is traveling to D.C. this week.

Late Night with Seth Meyers is in Washington, D.C. this week (October 10–13), and we couldn’t more thrilled. While we have some great guests (Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden, Kevin Hart, Sarah Silverman and more), here’s a list of the real reasons we elected to take the trip.

  • We ran out of gas on our way to a swingers convention in Miami.
  • The 8G Band has never seen the Lincoln Memorial and don’t believe it exists.
  • Look, let’s just say we owe a lot of people a lot of money and it’s just best if we get out of town for a week.
  • Listen, we’ll believe Obama’s a citizen when we see that birth certificate WITH OUR OWN TWO EYES!
  • Wanted to experience the excitement of getting lost in a traffic circle.
  • Michelle Obama promised to teach us her arms workout.
  • Heard they have good New York-style pizza.
  • Fred Armisen is very intrigued by the idea of wizards playing basketball.
  • Stealing vegetables from Michelle Obama’s garden is cheaper than shopping at Whole Foods.
  • Seth has a 6-month-old baby and honestly just needs some sleep.
  • We mistakenly thought this was the Washington where weed was legal.
  • We’re looking for Fred. Please let us know if you’ve seen him.
  • Seth’s hair clip is being enshrined in the Smithsonian.
  • John McCain invited us to go nuts with his Dave and Buster’s “Black Card.”
  • New York City gets one good week of weather a year and we’d honestly just rather skip it.
  • Biden’s gonna teach us how to do donuts in Air Force Two on the White House Lawn.
  • All 150+ employees have been trying to take a vacation together for a while now and this is the only way to get NBC to pay for it.
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s been trolling Seth online and he’s gonna put an end to it.
  • Seth is trying to push through some legislation where late night hosts are allowed to keep their shoes on at the airport.
  • Seth made a mix tape and a road trip was the only way he could force the staff to listen to it.
