***Election Night Party*** Come one and all!

Truman_dewey_wins_1 Election Night Party

Five Oaks Clubhouse in Durham.

6 p.m.

My friend Pat Chu is hosting an election night party at the Five Oaks Clubhouse.  I guess I'm actually co-hosting it since my name is on the party contract.  Pat's hoping to see a couple-dozen Democrats cheering for blue state wins while drinking his champagne and eating his party snacks.  I'm up for anyone of any stripe to come and I'll have some champagne and beer, too.  (And, most likely, I'll have my laptop while I'm working on an Urban Ministries of Durham slideshow that's on tap for a 7:45 fundraising breakfast the next morning. Gaah!  Behind schedule!)

So if you're looking for an excuse to watch TV (or surf the 'net) on election night in comfortable surroundings among friendly folk, please join us 6 p.m. until whenever at the Five Oaks Clubhouse in SW Durham (not far from the intersection of I-40 and 15-501).  Click for approximate map or for written directions.

And it WAS a great time -- in so many ways!

Thanks to our official host, Patrick Chu of www.itsyourturn.com

Patrick and several friends made it a real party with lots of excellent food and drink. I think we had ~30 people (+1 dog) join us through the evening. Jerrypants and Stewpants were with us, representing one little corner of blogland.

Added bonus -- it was multimedia viewing, recording and production land like I never expected. For the elections we had two televisions and a laptop to the internet.

Back in the bar, Anthony Kelley and company were filming interviews for a social documentary they're producing on the Alfalfa Club. And back behind them, I was hurriedly learning how to process audio files for a multimedia slideshow I was presenting the next morning at an Urban Ministries of Durham fundraiser.

Pat wants to do it again for next election, and I'm completely down with that.
