sigh.  i sort of wish i was going to this:

but airplane tickets are too expensive and i want to stand in slightly drunken anticipatory solidarity with my new red/purple/BLUE state of Virginia on tuesday.

so.  i guess these are some of the options:

well.  having difficulty locating election parties in town.  neither clementine,

or blue nile,

seem to have anything up on their websites.  but it’s very possible that there is an announcement out there that hasn’t reached me yet.  there better be.

my awesome neighbor, who we were happy to accompany to the obama rally the other day (this is her:)

keeps telling me about some $5 blue nile election night, good food, let’s party, event.  but i can’t find the details, or we’d all plan on it.  any ideas?

I heard from a server friend that the party at the Nile should be a rowdy good time.

Comment by David Troyer

As we’ve hosted gatherings for all the debates and most recent speech at JMU, Clementine will be an open space for the community come Election Day (and night). We’ll be broadcasting election results in our lounge and on the main floor. The bar will also be open downstairs, but no one is required to purchase anything. No cover. All ages. Open to all!

Clementine. 153 S Main St. Harrisonburg, VA.
Any questions, feel free to email me: suzi@clementinecafe.com. Hope to see you here!

Thanks to all those who are hosting events. Although I think BLUE Nile’s name could be good luck! 🙂

You might talk to Lowell Fulk. I think a lot of Dems go to that place next to Outback. I can never remember the name! I will as soon as I click publish!

Being a remote-control-control-freak (esp after learning my lesson during CNN’s 04 Bob Dole/Bob Woodward Election Night bore-gasm), I’m hosting a soiree of my own. Mostly pitchers of booze (mmm, sangria!), but also frozen pizza masquerading as classy food. Here are the recipes, if you’d like to do the same: MMM.
