Wonkette Sexy Election Parties Coast 2 Coast & Around the World
Good lord, Wonkette should just preemptively schedule a "recovery day" for Nov. 5, as none of you people will be in any shape to read words or process numbers next Wednesday. We asked for yourSEXY ELECTION PARTYTIME listings, and we have a couple dozen fine offerings from Washington D.C. to Washington State, Tokyo to Tacoma, Bridgeport to Boston, Dallas to Dublin, Ottawa to Quetzaltenango, Sarasota to Seattle, Memphis to, uh, Ho Chi Minh City ... plus Vegas and San Francisco and Brooklyn and MORE, MORE.

- We're on tour for vote day, so we're having an elections return party aspart of our nerdcore hip-hop performance at Mexicali Live in Teaneck NJ. Audience members will hear race returns from the stage, win worthless candidate-related crap, play Obama Takes A State Bingo, and run for incredibly local offices such as Deputy Minister Of Buying The Band Another Round. It'll be a flag-wavin' good time for all. Ten bucks advance, twelve at the door, which opens (we think) around 8p. Thanks!
PS -- Anyone who IDs themselves as a Wonkette reader gets a Certificate Of Awesomeness.

Lascauxcaveman says: Why, Ken. I thought you’d never ask!
Here’s the invite my teacher wifey and I are sending out to her emailing list:
Election Night Returns Party For Port Angeles Area Educators, at the Downtown Hotel, right in the heart of (you guessed it) downtown Port Angeles. Come and drop in anytime after 4:30pm, party goes ’til whenever.
The hosts are providing a salad bar, couple cases of wine and beer and some pizzas. This is a semi-pot-luck event so bring anything else you’d like to have on hand to eat/drink, or bring nothing at all. Elitist Liberals should bring white wine and arugula, Hard Core Conservatives are encouraged to bring red meat. Guys named Joe should bring a six-pack (or be an unemployed plumber). Call or email us at the hotel if you need directions or more info.
(We’re having the party in the lobby and the largest guest room, since it’s the slow season for little tourist hotels in our town. Like the invite says, this is mostly for teachers, but Wonkettes in the Port Angeles area are certainly welcome too! I’ll be the one in the shirt with the hotel logo on it, ’cause I’m the boss.)
