Caucus Query

A political junkie writes:

Hey Eli,

Know of any bars around town bizarre enough to show the Nevada results tomorrow night? I might want to venture out and still stay up to the minute.

I don’t, but I figure the Sloggy masses might be able to help. Anyone?

I bet some of the casinos would--some get their management from Nevada, and might tune in.

Fox Sports might have Fox News on a TV with no sound. I don't recommend you go there, though.

Sigh. I wish there were a bar in Seattle that catered to political junkies. Mind you, I would probably just turn into an alcoholic if that happened.

On a related note, I've been wondering about bars to watch the debates at since I don't have cable. Any ideas?

Is betting on elections legal in NV?

I'm sure the nice folks at Madison Pub would oblige you by tuning one of their TVs to a channel that shows election results. They're pretty accomodating, and there are probably others who are interested as well.

Betting on elections is not legal in NV.

Please to note: If there are any rich people looking for ways to invest their money, I will open this bar for you.

@3 - Spitfire in Belltown on 4th Ave (away from the yups) is your place - free wi-fi, 22 tv's, and they're always happy to tune one of their big screens into political coverage if there aren't some already there. And political groups do things there all the time. Non-profits and political groups can rent out the back room for no up front cost. It's a good place run by good lefties. And they even show sports once in a while.

You might want to check out the bars earlier in the day. In Nevada, the Rs caucus at 9am and the Ds at 11am.

Olivia's got the word. Dem caucus is at 11am Nevada time (are they Pacific?) so we'll know the results before my brunch Bloody Mary gets served to me. It's gonna be ancient news by tomorry night.

Yup, Olivia and el ganador are on target. Expect to know the results in near-entirety by mid-afternoon.
