Austin: Join us at the weekly Drinking Liberally at the Dog & Duck, 406 W. 17th St. (at Guadalupe) from 6:30 on. (Decent bar food, good beer selection, plenty of parking.)

Look for us on the covered patio on the side (where there's a TV), under the "Drinking Liberally" flag. Not everyone there will be sexing Mutombo, but new folks show up all the time, so don't be shy. Just sidle up and say hello.

M/tch & I will be there, and I think Heebie & Jammies are planning on it. Let us know if you're coming and we'll keep an eye out for you.

Deep Ellum works for me. Just so long as I remember to vote in the morning.

I guess New York should be at that midtown Irish place where we watched the 2006 returns. I didn't make it out bar-scouting, and that place was centrally located, big, and had a TV. Also the usual bar food. I don't think there was wireless. Someone remember the name of the place?

O'SOmething. It was on 36th east of 5th, the same block as the Ginger Man.

It was O'Reilly's Townhouse at 21 W. 35th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. Closest subways are the 34th Street B/D/F/Q/W/V/N/R station, the 33rd Street 6 station, and the 1/2/3 lines at Penn Station.

"Why don't we go somewhere that doesn't suck?" is what I'd say if I had an alternative suggestion. Is midtown in the thirties really the best compromise given where everyone is coming from/needs to go?

Don't we kind of want someplace that sucks? We want quiet, and a TV -- a fun bar won't be good for watching returns.

I'd push Nolita Bar, which has quiet, wifi (I think...), and a TV. And it also has the added benefit over my last suggestion of actually having a sign out front. But the real reason I'm pushing it is laziness, so I'm willing to defer.

Nolita House or Nolita Bar? Because I know staff at the former, and don't think the latter exists.

Nolita House seems like it would be crowded and cramped, no? I guess it depends on how many of us show up -- and I have no idea what the place is like on Tuesdays.

Do any of you know of a bar in LA that is expected to play the Super Tuesday results? I don't have a tv at home. I will probably try the Rustic Inn, as that's where I watched the Nevada primaries.

Will the Continental have returns on? Can we make them? It was one of the backdrops of my delightfully misspent youth (then called the Continental Divide), but I haven't been there since my friend stopped tending bar. It would be my first time there not doing naughty things in the bathroom! Or would it? (No, it really would.)

Is there no bar for ink-stained wretches certain to be following the returns?

Continental is awesome for the cheap drinks, but it seems kinda iffy that it would be showing election returns. Worth a try, I guess, especially if AWB gets there at 2:30 and calls dibs on the teevee.

To make this even more complicated, there's a separate discussion going on amongst some NYers where I think the conclusion was "fuck it, let's just go back to O'Reilly's if we can get the TV".

I've asked somebody (ANYBODY PLEASE) to step up and give them a call to see if we can call dibs on the upstairs/TV. If I could get a volunteer, I'd be eternally grateful.

45,46 - I was thinking of proposing something. I think I'm driving back from a meeting in SJ on Tuesday. Anand and I could meet y'all somewhere.

I could do a Davis stopover instead, but without Anand. I know you guys only really want to meet Anand.

As for time, I'll be there by 6:15 or so.

In case any LGMers show up, I'm bringing my best knife and a backup concealed in a very secret, special place. But I'm told the bar has decent knives available to lend out; you just have to give them a driver's license or credit card as security.

50: I was thinking SF or civilized East Bay (Oakland/Berkeley/Emeryville). Unfortunately, I can't really think of any good teevee bars, so I was hoping someone else might step up and herd the cats this time around.

Triple Rock in Berkeley has TVs, although I'm not sure how amenable they'd be to changing them to election coverage. I'd imagine it'd depend on how many of us show up.
