Let's Dish: How Did You Ring in Election Night?

Let's Dish: How Did You Ring in Election Night?

Regardless of who you voted for, last night was a monumental night in American history. I wasn't feeling so well, so I watched history unfold at home with a beer, although in any other capacity I would've attended PartySugar and LibertySugar's election night bash.

How did you ring in the election? Did you tune in at a sports bar, or throw your own party? What was your election night drink of choice?

Sadly work has sent me to a super McCain town right now. On election night I went swimming at the local pool, came back to my temporary "home" and had chips, salsa, and beer during the concession and acceptance speeches with some co-workers. I will party my a$$ off on inauguration day though... that is also my 1st wedding anniversary. There will be lots of champagne!

Went over to a co-worker's parents house to watch the returns with like-minded people. We had red-white-and-blue burgers, red-white-and-blue potato salad and ex-Bush's Baked Beans. We also had all-American apple pie, which was carried into the TV room with sparklers for me (my birthday yesterday) after Obama was announced. It was WONDERFUL to be there, with those people. We had the Daily Show on, and I am so happy I was watching Jon Stewart at 8:01 pm CA time, and then they called it. We were all speechless. After a few minutes we thought about stepping outside, but realized we didn't have any noisemakers. Oops!
