Where To Eat And Drink On Election Night

Whether you'll be celebrating your triumphant victory or drowning your sorrows, we can all agree on one thing: we'll probably need a couple of drinks tonight. Or at least some food to sop up our stress. Here are some local restaurants and bars doing some fun promotions for election night.
- Brand new Tesori (which just got a good review from Time Out Chicago) is running a cute election night special. Bring in your voting receipt and get one of the above special drinks, the BaRocks Obama or the Mitt Rumney, for just $6. Worth stopping in after work even if you don't stay, but if you do, they'll be playing election coverage all night.
- If you want something a little fancier for your voting night, Geja's Cafe will be offering 20.12% off all bills tonight with a voting receipt. Because nothing says Democracy like fondue. (Melting pot? Get it? Oh, whatever)
- Get your party on at Kit Kat Lounge, where all the martinis are half off all night. They'll be showing coverage of the election from 5:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., and they've created two more special drinks just for the night - the Barack 'n’ Roll Martini and the Mitt 'Tini. Though, since one has Hypnotiq and the other has cherry-flavored vodka, we're not quite sure can can endorse either side in that election.
- Watch the election with the old-school lefties at Heartland Cafe, which will be hosting an election-night viewing party starting at 7 p.m. There's no cover, there will be plenty of election night food and drink specials, and you can buy a copy of Mother Jones to console you on the way home if the Dems happen to lose.
Get out and vote, everyone!
