UPDATE: West Seattle presidential-debate watching parties

6:42 PM: If you know of an open-to-the-public viewing party for the first presidential debate tomorrow, we’d love to hear about it – we’ve been asked multiple times today! Bar, restaurant, political group, whomever/wherever, as long as it’s in West Seattle, White Center, or South Park. E-mail us at editor@westseattleblog.com or comment below – thank you.

9:40 PM: Here’s what we have so far:

Admiral Bird (California/Admiral)

The Skylark (3803 Delridge Way SW), pre-trivia

House party in North Admiral that is also a campaign fundraiser for Secretary of State candidate Tina Podlodowski and Lands Commissioner candidate Hilary Franz, suggested donation $100/person – if interested, e-mail katherine@katherinebobman.com for details/RSVP

9:57 PM: Another one just in:

Parliament Tavern (4210 SW Admiral Way): “We’ll have the two parties represented on the big screen, but the REAL party falls smack during happy hour, which will carry through the end of the debate! $4 draft micros! $4 wells! $2.50 Rainier’s and PBR tallboys!”

ADDED MONDAY MORNING: OutWest Bar (California/Brandon) too.

Anyplace else? We’ll keep adding whatever comes in. (The debate is set for 6-7:30 pm Monday, our time, by the way.)

    What a *bleep* show this is going to be

    Skylark on Delridge is having a debate-viewing before trivia.  I’m personally hoping the debate motivates people to drink enough I have a shot at winning for once.

      Thanks. That’s two, then, with Admiral Bird, so far. Good luck at trivia! – TR

    I DONT GET IT. The debates maybe had a place in generations past. We know their positions or lack thereof. Given the questions are filtered by media to support the hope for future $ revenue whats the point? Both parties will say the won to a viewing party that is 92% made up. I’d rather watch a rerun of Bates Motel.

    The main library branch is screening it.  Not a party, but a place to view:

      Thanks. By “party” we do mean “viewing event” in a broad sense.

    I for one will not be watching the debate due to the CPD keeping Former Gov. of New Mexico Gary Johnson off the debate stage.

    In Sunday’s Seattle Times they have “Presidential Debate Bingo Cards” on page H10.  

    The boxes have themes, quotes and phrases listed and you just cross out the box when you hear whats in the box.

    Get 5 in a row and you “win”.   

Sorry, comment time is over.
