Relive the best night of the 21st Century!

Last night Drunk of the Week photographer Kelly O, former Party Crasher Ari Spool and I stopped by all the Seattle and Eastside political parties, snagging interviews as the polling numbers came in. The highlight? We convinced Stranger cult-hero Hugh Foskett to ditch the Republicans’ dapper soiree and come roll with us for an hour. Turns out the famous photo of our favorite frat boy vomiting in the sombrero was not due to alcohol consumption — that’s right, he’s vomiting milk in that snapshot and is completely sober! Does that make it even more embarrassing?
Check out that steamy footage and other short videos from the night!
