I'm not sure Andrew Hughes knew what he was getting into when he planned a "spirited start" to his campaign against longtime Congressman Jim McDermott, set it for tonight at a bar right across the street from the Stranger offices, and announced "free booze for all members of the press!"
Brendan Kiley, upon hearing the news, declared: "This man is either a fool or a genius."
When: Tuesday, June 26th, 6:30PM - 10:30PM
Where: Vermillion - Art Gallery | Wine Bar on Capitol Hill, 1508 11th Ave (between Pike St. & Pine St) Seattle
The Hughes Campaign will provide beer, wine and scrumptious food, with free booze for all members of the press! Top local jazz superstars the Ryan Burns Trio will be performing followed by the lush sounds of DJ Rob.
Tucked away in the heart of Capitol Hill, Vermillion Art Gallery is a refined, urban, contemporary venue described by The Stranger as "a place that possesses the massive virtue of being wonderful without trying too hard."
"D.C. is drunk with power and partisanship," said Hughes. "It's time for leaders that serve the people, not themselves. Let's realize a new future for our district and our country."
Let us also learn how much of Hughes's cash on hand can be drunk in one sitting!
First, however, a Slog poll:
How much of Hughes's cash on hand can the Stranger staff drink in an evening?
