Happy Hour! Presidential Debates! Drama! Where to Watch in SF

Every so often, a monumental event takes place on television that we ALL must tune in and watch. A civic duty of sorts for the voyeuristic set. Will Tom Brady live up to expectations and bring a Superbowl victory to the Patriots? Negative, Ghostrider. Will Britney's performance of "Gimme More" at the VMA's launch her career comeback? Not so much. And can we really stand an entire hour of home videos comprised of dads getting sacked in the nuts by their kids? The answer: yes we can!




Tonight marks another such event: the first political debate between presidential hopefuls John McCain and Barack Obama.  Tune in to watch the culmination of days of "will he show up?" speculation surrounding McCain.  This just in, he's coming.  It's gonna be good.

Indulge the SF geek in you and chime in on Twitter's, up-to-the-minute reaction election page. However, if gin joints and cyberspace aren't your speed, Jim and Suzanne's house still has room. It's supposed to be lovely this time of year.  - Caitlin Donovan
