Be Prepared: Terrifying Tuesday

add to kirtsy

So I've talked to bunches of people about the upcoming election. Some Republicans say that Obama must be stopped, that they are afraid of what will happen to our country if he is elected. Some Democrats say that McCain and Palin must be stopped, that if McCalin/Palin are elected they will move out of the country.

Yada, yada, yada. It's tense out there. Mention the election and people start sweating with passion for their candidate, or for the ousting of the other candidate.

Inevitably, there are going to be many, many people disappointed on Tuesday. Don't know which side will be let down, but it's going to be dramatic for sure.

My somewhat unhealthy suggestion is to be near your favorite vice for mental and emotional soothing on Tuesday night. Mine just happens to be food. Yours might be alcohol. In either case, both of us have several options.

The Willamette Week party at Grand Central
Cocktails and coverage starting at 6pm
Raffle Prizes and a Bailout Menu
SE 8th and Morrison

Free Soup at Olea
Soup kitchen and Happy Hour all night long
1338 NW Hoyt

TV and Happy Hour All Night
Bluehour - 250 NW 13th Ave.
Saucebox - 214 SW Broadway
23Hoyt - 529 NW 23rd Ave
Clarklewis - 1001 SE Water Ave.

See? There are so many options for getting blindly drunk (or eating yourself into an oblivion) to forget that our country is going to hell. Yay for Portland!

LOL! You make me laugh! See my blog. I saw this on another friends blog. I had to post it. I am in need of some serious humor! I am tense with anticipation!

I went to the party at Grand Central. Where'd you end up?

We ended up at Olea. It was just crowded enough and they had great food and free soup. Loved it - love the outcome of the election even more.
