Oh Right We Have Just Now Decided To Have A Los Angeles Election Night Party

Since we will have a chat cave full of courrespondentes live-blooging tonight’s MADNESS for you, the feverishly page-refreshing Wonkadero, your Editrix has decided to take the night off and treat herself and her fellow Angelenos to Election Night beers and whatnot. THE DETAILS! Let us call it “seven p.m.,” until “11 or something,” at everyone’s favorite sports bar cum Art Deco ballroom, Busby’s East! (5364 Wilshire Blvd., (323) 525-2615.) We do not wish to hear your bitching about “parking” and “driving.” We know we live in Los Angeles. Sack the fuck up! Some beer is on us. (Also, we know there are no NBA playoffs tonight — OR ARE THERE? That is a picture from last time, dummies. GAH.)

Hola wonkerados.

      1. OzoneTom

        What you said, except it is missing critical punctuation "everyone’s favorite sports: bar cum, Art Deco ballroom"

  1. ph7

    Election parties always come with the promise of victory fucking, right? I mean, who goes to a victory party looking for their sister?

    1. commiegirl99

      How do you think I got together with my ex? (HINT, I WAS HIS BOSS AND I MADE HIM DO SEX ON ME ON OBAMA ELECTION NIGHT.)

          1. GregComlish

            Doing one's ex is like voting. Sometimes there are regrets, but it is ultimately one's civic duty

  2. Goonemeritus

    I will just sit at home with the wife who will be trying to telekinetically seduce David Gergen through our TV screen.

  3. Lazy Media

    Any Wonketteers in DC going out? C'mon, you can't ALL be stuck to the couch with Cheetohs dust and spooge. Where's a good Democratic bar (all of them)?

    1. MissusBarry

      I'd certainly be interested in knowing about any such gathering. I've been seduced into attending a party in *barf* Georgetown, but I suspect it'll be a shit show…either in wait to get a drink, or political leanings, or both.

  4. Toomush_Infer

    Oh, sure – do you know how hard it is to get a plane ticket to L.A. from upper Michigan on short notice – there better be some hardtime liveblogging from there, bitches…..

    1. weejee

      Well let's see, if memory serves you take a DC3 from Iron Mountain, and after 72-teen stops you get to Billy Mitchell in Milwaukee. From there you take a shuttle to O'Hare in Chicago, but often it is faster if you walk ride the Hound from MKE to ORD. Then you fly to LAX. Heck, you're there in two, three days tops!

  5. SorosBot

    Maybe I'll head on down – LA and SF are in the same state, so they must be pretty close together, right?

    1. glasspusher

      Yeah, I get that all the time from my (still) east coast friends. Great, you're going to be in San Diego? I'll just drive down, it's only 10 hours…

      1. SorosBot

        I got that from my family; I've got a cousin (and his wife & kids) who live in San Diego, and my parents said it should be easy for me to go visit them. Um, no, not really.

        1. glasspusher

          Yah, back from old NJ, where I hail from, you could get to any part of that state from my location (Piscataway) in 2 hours or less. Here? More like 12.

        2. CindynEncinitas

          Don't sweat it. I'll make up the couch for you, dear. My divorce went thru… baby, baby… *bumps…grinds*

      1. MissTaken

        Good Question!

        We really should have a non-official Wonkette meetup thingy to introduce SB to you wacky and crazy people.

  6. Barbara_

    If anyone in Albuquerque wants to come over tonight I am making tacos and I have a ton of snob beer.

    1. GregComlish

      Oh well looky here. Somebody sure thinks she's special with her snob beer and fancy foreign cusine and her elitist meth-addled sunbelt hellhole.

    2. Steverino247

      Actually, I was thinking of coming to see ZPZ when they play there on 12/15/12. Got a sofa I can use for the night?

        1. Steverino247

          So, how to arrange this? Twitter? The old CIA/KGB dead drop downtown? Passing notes through the Editrix?

          I was thinking of driving up from San Diego County, staying at Flagstaff and then coming in to ALB. See the show, crash, get up and see it again in Flagstaff, then drive back home. I'd get the VIP packages so I can talk to the crew since I met them at Dweezilla last July.

  7. Mittens Howell, III

    Sorry, can't come, I just built my election-night fort out of blankies and couch cushions.

    nom nom these cheetos are cheeeeeezy!!

    1. prommie

      Fakakta and I like to play fort with the couch cushions too. Fucking world is too harsh and wrong out there, sometimes you just need a cocoon.

  8. Botlrokit

    I shall host a Wonkette drinking party at my house. My wife and I shall be the only one attending, though, for we live in the boondocks.

  9. hagajim

    So if Measure B fails will there be a big unprotected sex orgy or fapfest? Only makes sense in LA.

  10. SayItWithWookies

    Ohio has 18 electoral votes — so Obama better win by more than that so as to fend off the inevitable provisional count there. But if he doesn't, I can make it the party in oh, three, four days tops.

  11. UnholyMoses

    Well, I think I'd have a right to bitch about driving if I drove all the way from here in KC to be there.

    But since the laws of physics are more widely followed than the laws about voting, I won't be there.

    On the bright side: Turns out that Todd Akin isn't a legit candidate, as my brain rejected him this a.m. So I (and, hopefully, the rest of the nation will) have that going for me …

  12. CrunchyKnee

    We'll be election night irresponsible-drinking and probably smoking the (almost legal) election weed here in Denver at the usual dives near Curtis Park. Sure, we're not all LA fancy with the traffics and the crimes and the what nots, but we do have decent beer and a dork for a governor.

  13. ttommyunger

    Sorry, Wifey has a ton of "Repo Wars" to catch up on and I've got a date on the Intertoobs with Daisy Marie…

  14. YouBetcha

    I refuse to attend. Being pregnant and unable to drink, I hate seeing joyful drunken revelry. Curse you all.

      1. YouBetcha

        God needs to create a better system where the fetal occupant isn't such a lightweight. Or maybe the placenta can metabolize alcohol. Because SCIENCE, DAMNIT. You'd think if Darwin was right this shit would have been figured out by now.

      1. YouBetcha

        The top names on our list are Trick, Paper, and Bracket. My fingers are crossed that Palin doesn't fake squeeze one out between now and my due date, because you just know she's going to steal one of my names.

    1. actor212

      I have a friend. Her first baby, she did the whole nine yards: no beer, no wine, stopped smoking, exercised, and gave birth (after 36 hours of labor) to a fourteen pound boy. By C -section.

      Next time, she barely blinked an eye and had a beautiful 8 pound girl.

  15. Noisette76

    BOO! I would love to be there, but have two wee munchkins who need to be abed by then… but I'll be there in spirit! Celebrating! Because there will be much to celebrate!! Right? RIGHT????

  16. VeraSevera

    SF Wonkettes at Trax on Haight St. tonight. Vera Severa in person. It's K'bama vs. Roseanne down to the wire.

    P.S. Don't eat the nachos.

    P.P.S. Vera is the OLD at the end of the bar with an empty martini glass….

  17. elviouslyqueer

    Attention Memphis-area Wonketteers! I am organizing a victory drinky-poo at The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium downtown at 5pm 4pm TODAY. Because VICTORY (and beer, also, too)!

    EDIT: Starting an hour earlier! Happy Hour, bitchez!

    1. Toomush_Infer

      Geez, and I've just been telling my Republican friends that our polling place isn't accessible by Hoverounds….guess I'll have to up my game…

  18. Poindexter718

    Mad props for finding Designated Bloggers.
    I initially thought you were contemplating posting your hawt newz whilst under the influence of alcohol, which would represent a shameful new precedent.

  19. prommie

    Philadelphia, anyone?

    What about this, Drinking Liberally:
    The week's events:
    •Tuesday 11/6: Drinking Liberally Center City meets every Tuesday 6- 9 p.m. at the upstairs bar of Jose Pistola's, 263 S. 15th St. (between Locust and Spruce Streets), Philadelphia, PA 19102.

  20. iTuna

    I'm going to be cuddled up in my girlfriend's bed, watching results and drinking heavily. None of you are invited.

  21. Toomush_Infer

    All right – I'll be too blitzed to move, but you're all invited to me and Mrs. Toomush's place for any mad Wonketteering you want – she's downstate tonight….whee…..

  22. Tilley

    Spouse is out of town getting chemo treatment. Drinking after work until 8 with a friend. Then back to my cold dark house, my anxiety-riddled countenance lit only by the lurid glow of the computer. Wonkette live-bloggers and Johnny Walker, don't fail me now.

    1. SunburntCounsel

      I know this is horrifyingly unsnarky, but I hope chemo for the spouse, election returns, and the Johnny Walker go smoothly.
      That's a lot to handle in one go.

      1. Tilley

        Thanks — and don't even get me started on my job! Oh hell, let the drinking begin already bitchez!

  23. Crank_Tango

    Party down in the 510! Well, actually I am getting over a cold, so I will be drinking hot rum with brown sugar and butter, like every other night this past week.

    1. MissTaken

      SB and I are planning to crash the Drinking Liberally Oakland shindig at the Spice Monkey Cafe tonight. Join!

      I'd link to the site, but it's blocked here at work.

  24. CindynEncinitas

    I would totally go but it's Beer Week down here and Stone is going to be at the Encinitas Ale House. Plus, L.A. is vacation far, especially on a school nite. Have one in the OC! I miss Taco Mesa so bad!

    1. commiegirl99

      The owner of Taco Mesa roofied me one night at Chat Noir. I USED to love that place. Now not so much.

  25. CindynEncinitas

    Ooohh, drag! I guess I can scratch that place off my list. I hope the Mongolian BBQ treated you better. I miss it, too. And Cappy's.

  26. Nostrildamus

    This election will be a relief to all of us. Mittens can go back to just lying to his family, again.
