Have you voted yet, New York City? Though our governor's race is pretty much set (spoiler alert: Governor Cuomo is expected to win), there are lots of interesting races to watch on a national level. The midterm elections, of course, don't inspire as many viewing parties as the presidential elections. But if you're a political junkie looking to take in the action with other like-minded voters, here are a few places to go this evening:
Election Night Party 2014 at Lexington's bar (130 E 39th St): Hosted by the New American Leaders Project, Dream Action Coalition, New York Immigration Coalition, and Legacy NY, this left-leaning cocktail party will be watching returns from all over the country from 8-11pm.
New York Young Republican Club November Election Night Social at Slattery's Midtown Pub (8 E 36th St): Conservative voters can mingle while watching the results at this party, which also features Ed Rollins, Fox News contributor and Reagan-Bush '84 Campaign Manager. 7pm.
Working Families Party Election Night Party at Die Koelner Bierhalle (84 St. Marks Place, Brooklyn): New York's progressive political party will be watching at the popular Park Slope beer hall (also known as the KBH) beginning at 8pm. The party's full list of endorsements can be found on their website.
Election Night with Drinking Liberally at Pacific Standard (82 4th Ave, Brooklyn): It's no surprise that this California-inspired Park Slope bar is catering to those with liberal politics this evening. Join fellow left-wingers to watch races from around the country and share reactions (over beer, of course). Drinking Liberally's NYC chapters also host monthly bar nights in Midtown, Williamsburg, Downtown Brooklyn and Astoria.
And if you haven't voted yet, get to the polls!
