Election Night Parties

Here's the list of "victory parties" (they always call them that, even when the candidate in question has no chance of winning) that we know of at the moment. We'll update this list as we receive more info. For the most part, we expect Austin candidates will all converge at the celebrations of their respective political party to be with like-minded revelers.
