Presidential Debates + Booze = October 3rd

I'm new here, but back in Seattle I had a lot of fun organizing meet ups to view the presidential debates at bars. The parties were a lot of drunken fun. I've decided to take the initiative and do the same thing here.

The first debate is on October 3rd. We'll be meeting at 8:00 PM at Town Tavern on 18th in Adams Morgan. They've promised great food and booze specials for Redditors. The drinks are cheap and still normally, so we should all like watching there.

They have several TVs and a great sound system, so we won't have to worry about hearing over drunk AM bar douches.

If things work out we'll even have some awesome drinking games to go along with the program. And, if successful, there are two more presidential and one VP debate coming before the election. Fun!

      Take a drink for "forward," "backward", "let me be clear," "my friend," "Mr. Obama (instead of President Obama)," "12 million jobs," etc.

    If my candidate, Gary Johnson, on the ballot in DC and 48 states (still working on last two), gets allowed in at the last minute, I will buy the bar a round of shots.

    Though then there would be enough debate to make it worth actually listening to.
