Bruce Harrell HQ

posted by on November 6 at 20:30 PM

[Reported by Jonah.]

At Bruce Harrell’s party at the Four Seas in the International District, the first results are in. Harrell is at 61% to Velazquez’s 38%, and everyone in the crowd is going nuts. The fact that it’s at Four Seas is weird—this is Richard McIver’s hangout. Jonah asked Harrell why he was having his party here: Apparently, Harrell’s family had a big dinner here two days before his dad died in August. Said Harrell, “His spirit is here with me.” Jonah asked if Harrell would be drinking tonight, and his wife quickly jumped in: “He’ll be very careful.”

Ron Sims is here—it’s one of three stops he’s making. He’s also stopping by the Sierra Club and Medic 1.

The best part so far: When asked how the food was, former mayoral candidate Al Runte bit into a chicken wing, licked his fingers, and said, “It’s all right. When I had my election party at Rock Salt, we spent $2,000, and it was good.”

Jonah, were you there when Harrell acknowledged you an said that he respected "some" of the things the Stranger does?

Nah, really? We took off early in the evening to watch the Della ship sink. Did that really happen?

Yes, really. I think he meant it as a sincere way of acknowledging you guys despite endorsing VV, but it came out kind of funny.
