OK, let's party

Posted By on Fri, Oct 31, 2008 at 3:06 PM

It's on. The first ever official Arkansas Blog Election Watch Party will commence at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4, in the restaurant at Rumba and run until ....

There will be drink and food specials, I've been promised. (I'm lobbying for $1 Heilemann Old Style or something suitably Chicagoan.)

We'll have at least three TVs for multi-taskers. And, if all goes well, we'll do some live blogging and put the blog up on a monitor so you can watch it unfold. Photos might be taken and shared with the universe.

Others are getting election parties on, too. Some Democratically inclined types, our former associate editor Warwick Sabin among them, are setting up a party at the nearby Copper Grill and talking about having Chris Denny and band on hand. The Young Black Professionals and the Black Law Students Association at the UALR Law School will be partying at Juanita's, $5 cover, with a buck off if you bring a canned good.

The Republican Party has invited all comers to their party at the Holiday Inn Presidential. Maybe we can all roll in on them late in the evening.
