Looking for a bar to watch tonight's State of the Union address? Perhaps surprisingly, you are NOT alone in your desire to drown your uber-political nerdiness in your drink alongside likeminded liberals.
There are three "official" State of the Union Watch Parties in Manhattan tonight:
Mason Jar NYC Bar & Grill Watch Party, from 8pm to 11pm, located at 43 E. 30th Street, between Park and Madison (Hey young professionals, the Manhattan Young Democrats are among the co-sponsors of this watch party).
Riviera Cafe, from 8pm to 11pm, 225 W. 4th Street, near 7th Ave S.
Some guy named Reno's loft, I think..., RSVP for address, somewhere in Tribeca.
WNYC will also be hosting a Watch Party at The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space, at 44 Charlton Street, at Varick Street. However, if you haven't already RSVP'd for this party, bring some Benjamins to grease the doorman, as it's sold out!
The NY Chapters of Drinking Liberally will also be co-hosting a Watch Party in Brooklyn, at 112 Bond Street, off of Pacific, from 8pm to 11pm.
Of course, no SOTU Watch Party would be complete without some drinking games. L'chaim!
