You're going to need a drink
by Kerry Jepsen on Sep 26, 2016 in Roundups
As it turns out, a drink with your politics is a great combo. In fact, a couple drinks is really where you want to be. Eachdebate will begin a9 PM and the first will air on Monday, September 26; the second on Sunday, October 9; and the third on Wednesday, October 19. In the midst of those dates, vice presidential nominees Tim Kaine and Mike Pence will contend on Tuesday, October 4.
 
Check out these bars that will be screening the debate and let us know of Facebook or Twitter if  we missed anywhere else!
 
Located in Gowanus, The Bell House always has something going on. Whether it be your favorite band playing, a hysterical comedian, or whatever else you could possible conceive of live or screened this warehouse-turned-venue has a lot to offer behind the bar as well. (149 7th, Brooklyn, NY; 718-643-6510)
