Obama, McCain, Julia Allison....Where To Watch Tonight

by CHRISTOPHER CONFESSORE · November 4, 2008

We hope you are getting out to vote today. As an added incentive, if you didn't know, Starbucks is giving out free coffee to voters everyone all day, and Ben & Jerry's is giving out free ice cream from 5-8pm.  Once you have voted, you can gather at these places to watch the returns roll in, maybe with a drink in hand, certainly with other involved people alongside, keeping the debate alive till the last minute! PLUS, the NonSociety girls will be LIVE BLOGGING from the "CNN Grill" in Columbus Circle.  Julia Allison is excited about the election, especially because it provides her with another dress up themed opportunity.
