SuperVegan’s Best Election Night Party Ever starts at 8pm tonight at Fontana’s. We’ll have delicious, organic, local, savory food from Chickpea & Olive (menu above) and delectable, organic, artisinal doughnuts from Dun-Well Doughnuts!
So come hang out, eat, drink, see old friends, make new friends, watch the returns to come in on Fontana’s giant wall-sized projection screen, and listen to great music from DJ Grand Format, DJ Megan Rascal, and myself.
Fontana’s was without electricity for several days after Sandy, but they’re fully reopened now. Most subway, bus, ferry, and regional rail lines are operational again. The weather forcast also looks fine for bicycling—that nor’easter isn’t expected til Wednesday.
While it’s easy to be completely absorbed in the acute crisis caused by Sandy, this election is—in a very different way—also a very big deal. Amongst many other things, it could have a significant impact on how prepared we are for future big-weather events. And—call us crazy!—move this country closer to a political climate which is more ethically enlightened in regard to non-human animals. So, go vote, encourage your friends and relations in swing states to vote, then come to our party. You don’t want to be sitting home alone on Election Night. We hope to celebrate together. We may have to mourn together. Either way, we should be together.
At Fontana’s Bar, 105 Eldridge Street (between Grand St. & Broome St.), New York, NY 10002. 8pm until the election is called (barring any 2000-style craziness).
Admission is free; just pay for what you eat and drink.
RSVP on Facebook, like the with-it kids do.
All are welcome. Vegans and non-vegans, heavy drinkers and teetotalers, people who revere the two party system and electoral college and those who revile ‘em. You don’t have to be eligible to vote to attend, but you do have to be 21 to get in the bar.
