BV! How could you neglect to mention the Bell House? Their party looks to be pretty excellent!!

for serial

If this isn’t the most exciting election in your lifetime, then you’re older than we thought. But not too old to celebrate with us the night of November 4 at The Bell House’s Red + Blue Election Night Party.

What makes this night Red and Blue, besides the obvious?
The Red Hook Vendors, for one. The ball fields may be closed for the season, but Rafael Soler (finalist at this year’s Vendy Awards), Fernando Martinez and Eleazar Perez will all be there selling pupusas, tacos and huaraches (hooray!). On the other side of the spectrum, The Blue Album Group will be performing Weezer’s celebratory “Blue Album,” start to finish. And we’ll be representing the party colors ourselves with homemade, Red and Blue cupcakes.

Other reasons why this will be an exciting night (again, besides the obvious):
Myopenbar is co-hosting and making possible two special, candidate-themed cocktails: Drambuie Rusty Nails (a nod to McCain, of course) and a Hendrick’s “GIN-eration Tonic” (to toast Obama’s renewing effect on the state of the union). Both drinks will be $4 all night long, and free from 9:30 to 10pm.

To lubricate the after-poll crowd even more, the hilarious Eugene Mirman will be MCing, and a likely, but still unnamed special guest will join him.

Most importantly, The Bell House’s two big screens in the front lounge and the performance space will both be tuned to CNN, so you can watch the returns and Wolf Blitzer’s touch-screen hijinks throughout.

Did we mention this party is free, in a brand-new, excellent Brooklyn venue?

The doors open at 6, and the festivities begin at 7. Happy voting, and hope to see you there!

I guarantee you Red Bamboo Brooklyn has a better bar than the Manhattan one, and is nicer space to throw a party. Also, who the fuck wants to go to Manhattan? Details on the SuperVegan party here: http://supervegan.com/blog/entry.php?id=1195

No cover, drink specials, DJ(s), TVs, greasy food, Brooklyn, vegan, etc.

The only thing more boring than a Black Crowes acoustic performance is having to read the predictable response by some "cooler than the Crowes" BV comment poster. We get it. You are the shit. Now go get on your fixie and ride to the nearest coffee shop for a cupping.

I was hoping that racist Public Assembly "chicken and waffles" thing was a joke, but apparently it's real.

this would be racist.

Why is it a joke on black people? Fried chicken (sorry vegans) and waffles is American.

Friday night resident Q-Tip brings his DJ skills to Santos on ELECTION NIGHT 2008 (ahem, make sure to VOTE, btw) to celebrate the release of his heralded new album "The Renaissance!"

Now picture it, if you will... just imagine that a certain AWESOME candidate for CHANGE secures his electoral votes early in the evening and becomes our new president-elect... you know that Santos is going to JUMP OFF and become the most insane party in NYC!

So call all of your homies in the important swing states, tell 'em to get out and vote early, and then BRING YOUR MOST COMFORTABLE SHOES and call in sick to work on Wednesday the 5th, 'cuz Q-Tip is going blow the lid off of Santos on Tuesday night!!

"nobody can prove Union Pool is racist."

I beg to differ. I was at a party a few weeks ago and Union Pool and a couple of his friends were there. Anyways, Union Pool got WASTED and started telling these really offensive racist and homophobic jokes. Not that it mattered, but these weren't even funny, just plain evil.
