Tonight Seattle’s Obama supporters will hold a debate watch party at Redline Sports and Music. For those of you folks who aren’t familiar with it, The Redline is a kick ass Coug bar in West Seattle.
I’m gonna be honest and say I snickered a little when I imagined a bar that honors my alma mater holding a serious political-minded event. The WSU Democrats Club used to hand out “I heart pro-choice girls” buttons on campus. One of my good friends dressed as Bill Clinton for Halloween—meaning he meandered Greek Row sans pants and froze his ass off. But hey, if the Cougs (and Obama supporters!) have one thing in common—it’s spirit.
The Redline’s Scott Goerig warns that you should show up early if you want to actually get a seat. Not only is this the second presidential debate, but it’s TACO TUESDAY (just like in Pullman!) That translates to authentic tacos for $1.25 plus a sweet deal on selected microbrews.
The Cougs and Obama supporters are pretty skilled at conjuring up drinking games-- seriously, how many "Barack-toberfests" is this country hosting?!?--so this is an awesome way to get your political-mindedness AND drink on.
