Where to Eat and Drink on Election Night

And maybe get a drink, because we've all been through a lot this election cycle.

Comfort me with cupcakes.
| Copper Hen Kitchen & Cakery Facebook page

It’s been a tempestuous, harrowing election cycle, to say the least. This is it: no more debates, headline-grabbing, and no more endless ads. We’ve all earned a respite and a nice place to hang out with fellow citizens and anxiously watch the results roll in. Several eateries around the cities offer a cozy spot where you can spend Tuesday night and bite something other than your nails.

How do you plan to watch the results? (Or avoid the news at all costs?) Take to the comments and let us know.
