Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Former U.K. Prime Minister Harold Wilson is often quoted as saying "A week is a long time in politics." That may be true, but a presidential debate feels like an eternity for the majority of the American electorate. Still, it's your democratic duty to watch, at least so you can comment intelligently on the candidates' hairstyles ("looked gray"/"like he was wearing a helmet made of hair") at the watercooler. If you leave home to watch, there are no-nonesense, straight-talking options (drink specials and the like, TVs with the sound on, etc.) at places like Pete's Candy Store in Williamsburg and Black Rabbit in Greenpoint, and—frankly—your local bar. But do you really want to get in a conversation with your neighbor about his/your radical libertarian outlook? No. So we took an informal poll of our brains and gave a high favoribility rating to these presidential debate-watching parties.
