ABC13's Miya Shay was there trying to speak to him. He went in a back entrance and avoided her. We caught a glimpse of his suburban parked outside.

Trying to get a shot of Mayor @PeteButtigieg, currently at a private meet & greet event. The driver went around the block to 3rd entrance to avoid us. Oh well. Guess we’ll see him at #abc13demdebate!! https://t.co/lK1URvOcXr pic.twitter.com/QTRDO1iRUm— Miya Shay (@ABC13Miya) September 11, 2019

The rest of Mayor's Pete's day was presumably spent prepping for tomorrow night's debate.
