2012 Presidential debate-watching parties in NYC
Where to Watch the Debates. Here’s a roundup of some of the bars that will be hosting debate-watching parties on on Wednesday .
From The Gothamist: Drinking Liberally is taking over the Village Pour House on Wednesday with pre-debate drink specials and a food menu. Because this is co-hosted by DFNYC, you’ll probably have to talk about how much better the dating scene is in NYC as opposed to Capitol Hill with a bunch of single people who “spent one crazy summer at CAP.“
The New York Young Republican Club’s monthly social is down the street at SideBAR this Wednesday, and although it’s not officially a debate party, we’re confident the flatscreens will be tuned in to the right channel at this “upscale sports bar.”
Whether you’re genuinely interested in the Republican platform, or a strident contrarian, or just looking for that special someone to hunker down with before Obama sends us all to work in the arugula camps, we’re pretty sure someone will pull out their Bass Pro Shops hat with the little metal clip on the bill and point out how utterly biased the whole debate is.
Another club…The Metropolitan Republican Club is also hosting a large Presidential Debate Watch Party Wednesday, October 3, 2012. It will be at 9:00PM – 10:30PM
Location: 122 East 83rd Street (bet Lex. and Park Ave)
Topic: Domestic Policy Moderator: Jim Lehrer (Host of NewsHour on PBS)
$15 for Members and Non-members/guests Light food and drinks will be served.
