Dinner & Debates

I'm looking for places that have tasty food that would also be willing to put on the debates, coverage of primaries, etc. I've had moderate luck in a few places convincing the bartenders that "it's just like a sports game: it's a competition and there are scores... ", but if there are places that tend to have them on already that would be fantastic.
Nothing conclusive, but it seems as if this would be particularly feasible in the People's Republic of Cambridge, and perhaps Somerville. I feel like upscale bars/pubs would be the money shot. A few initial thoughts:
Tavern/Travesty on the Square
Bar at Chez Henri
Thanks for the list. I'll look into them (except maybe Tavern on the Square... not that dedicated to politics!). I've found that Christopher's can be convinced if there isn't a Boston sports game on, but I can only eat so much buffalo tofu. :-P Thornton's puts stuff on sometimes (and has good food near it if not at it), but I live in Somerville, so places on this side of the river are preferable.
I will definitely report back if I find anything good.
Does Green Street have a TV? I was there just the other night and was looking for one (for
re: Notorious EMDB
I was thinking along the same lines as NEMDB, a place populated with locals politicians. Somewhere near the Hill, like 21st Amendment, or the Red Hat? A bunch of the places in Finlero's list don't carry the audio, not even for games but maybe you wouldn't mind reading captions? And try as I might, I can't picture the location of TV at Green Street...I, too, look forward to hearing anything definitive on this topic.
The upstairs section at the Red Hat might show the debate, but less likely downstairs, as that is where people such as my friends hang out. ;-b
I'm thinking that Doyle's in JP might be a good bet, or perhaps Jacob Wirth in the Theater District. The Last Hurrah in the Omni Parker House would definitely show it, but I'm not all that impressed by their food.
