Welp… Today is the day DMV! It’s time to let your voice be heard & to do your part to bring some change to your community. Get out & vote today! If you are looking for a place to watch the poll numbers pour in across the country, DCist has a list of the best spots across the DMV:
Roofers Union: The three-story Adams Morgan restaurant will have TVs showing election results. Happy hour, including some $3 drafts beers and $5 wines and spirits, will last all night.
National Press Club: For $95, you’ll get access to an open bar and hors d’oeuvres at the esteemed members-only journalists hangout. Special guests are said to be on hand, including former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele and former American Conservative Union Chairman David Keene.
The Watergate Hotel: The hotel’s Kingbird Restaurant and rooftop Top of the Gate bar will both be streaming election coverage.
Liaison Capitol Hill: In addition to showing election results starting at 6 p.m., the hotel will also offer a sample of Republic Restoratives bourbon to election-watchers who show up in a bow tie.
Hamilton Hotel: You could bite your nails over the returns at any ole watch party, but at this Franklin Square hotel, puppies will be on hand for snuggling away your election stress. Five puppies from the People. Animals. Love. will grace the hotel’s lobby from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on Tuesday (if things get really bad, know that the puppies are all available for adoption). Hamilton’s 14K restaurant will be airing election coverage from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. (yikes!) and will offer results guessing games with prizes for winners.
Mission Navy Yard: Carb-load through a stressful night with $8 quesadillas at this Mexican restaurant near Southeast. The $7 margaritas, $5 drafts, and $5 tequila shots will be flowing all night long, and good luck escaping the news: Election coverage will be playing on 16 big-screen TVs around the restaurant.
Reliable Tavern: Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s ardent fans are gathering at the Petworth bar to watch the returns of the hotly-contested race. The night includes Texan favorites like kolaches and Frito pie, as well as drink specials.
