I thought we could use this space to gather ideas of election night parties/ gatherings. Anyone know where there will be a fun viewing venue? 4 years ago, I went to Richard Hugo house which was great until the returns started streaming in. Not sure it they are doing anything this year. I know there must be a ton going on around this part of town, so let’s gather ideas and post!! (I did not put this in the post event section because I have no event to add!)… Kathleen
The Stranger is throwing an Election Night party at the Showbox. It is free, but you have to be 21 or over. They will have a bunch of tv screens set up with coverage from different tv networks. I’ve been to a Stranger’s election night party before (2004, what a sad, frustrating election in 2004) and it was really fun. They had the Daily Show’s feed on the largest screen, which is my favorite delivery method for news (sorry CDN…). Hot sausage cart set up outside. Drinks were flowing and people were excited and like-mindedly liberal. Good times. The Showbox is at 1st and Pike across from the Market. Doors open at 4pm.
Well… the 37th Dems have the Columbia City Cinema… http://www.37dems.org but I think I want to stay in the CD!
There is also a Bowling for Obama fundraiser that you donate now and celebrate at the Garage on November 9 if you want to venture out of the ‘hood.
