Election Night Parties
It would be a shame to commiserate or celebrate the election results all by your lonesome. You can watch the returns in the company of others on Tuesday night at a number of places, including the cool French bistro Florent in the meatpacking district, where Murray Hill and his burlesque babes *BOB*, Julie Atlas Muz, the Pontani Sisters, the Wau-Wau Sisters, and Amy Goodheart give western-themed performances on top of the bar counter. In between acts, you can cheer or jeer the two screens showing the poll results all night. It might be wise to make a reservation at the cozy space. Tuesday @ 8:30, Florent, 69 Gansevoort, 212.989.5779
The crazy party animals behind God Save New York are hosting an all-night election SLUMBER PARTY LOCK-IN.
