Cry havoc and let slip the attack dogs of political war! Thanks to Seth Meyers and the folks at SNL (video below), we have our shirts off, we're greased up, and we are pumped for the vice-presidential smackdown. Due to the state we find ourselves in, we thought it prudent not to inflict ourselves on the populace, so you're free to enjoy the debate at one of the bars or watching parties below.

RECOMMENDED: All Election Day 2012 events and coverage

For our money, Housing Works Bookstore Cafe offers the best option tonight. They'll be handing out bingo cards, and we took a sneak peek at some of what's on them:

- Biden cries.
- Ryan is wearing a poorly fitted suit.
- Biden makes a joke about the suit.
- Ryan gets confused about objectivism.
- Biden makes a possibly lewd remark concerning Michelle Obama.

The bingo winner will receive an extra punch in their ballot card, given out at every Housing Works debate screening. Anyone who gets three punches in their card (you receive one for every debate-watching party you attend) will receive a bucket of PBR at the venue's Election Night party. The democratic process has never been so rewarding.

Democrat boosters, on the other hand, can congregate around one of the 21 high-resolution televisions at this East Village tavern. The politically-themed shot at this spot is $5 Barack O-Bombs. On the strength of these puns alone, we're voting for Romney.
