Watch the State of the Union at Kate’s Pub or Cafe Presse

A third alternative: Stay home and play a drinking game. Esquire has a good one.

Raise a glass to the big guy: Bars hosts SOTU parties.

These days nearly every bar you go to has a television, so you’ll likely be able to catch the State of the Union all over town.

But if you’re still fired up and ready to go, you should probably hit Organizing for America’s rally-the-base bash at Kate’s Pub in Wallingford. This begins at 5pm (the speech is scheduled for 6pm).

Added attraction: Kate’s has an applause-worthy happy hour that lasts until 7pm and includes half-price food.

Cafe Presse is also hosting a watch party. Presse fries up some of the city’s best frites, so you can eat your pain tastily as you contemplate joblessness, global violence, and our highly fractured national government.

If you prefer to huddle up at home and watch the speech, might I recommend a drinking game? As is so often the case, Esquire has the best one. I’m not just saying that because it includes the expression “excessive bloviation.”
