E-Night Party Roundup!
Here's the latest we know at press time. Check austinchronicle.com for updates through Tuesday.
If you'd like to hobnob with a real live presidential candidate on election night without getting pre-clearance from the Secret Service, head over to Legends Sports Bar & Grill in the Holiday Inn at 8901 Business Park Dr. (southwest corner of the Highway 183/MoPac interchange) for what will presumably be a nonvictory party for Libertarian Party nominee (and Austinite) Michael Badnarik. The Libs say the party will run 6pm-midnight (maybe later). Appetizers are promised, as well as more than 30 TV screens on which to watch election results roll in.
An Election Night Party for the Rest of America will be held 8-10pm at Jovita's, 1619 S. First, hosted by Danny Roy Young, unofficial Mayor of South Austin and owner of the Texicalli Grill. The event features music and comedy by the Uranium Savages, and George Bush and John Kerry impersonators from Esther's Follies.
