Good pub/bar to watch the U.S. election?

I know this is not traditional Chowhound turf, but it's food and drink-related, and this is a crowd I can always trust to be discerning, so here goes...
I'm looking for a bar/pub at which to watch the U.S. election. Should have a decent selection of ales, nice ambience, and TV screens that will be tuned to CNN/PBS on Nov. 4! Oh, and Obama-friendly, please!
I know Flamingo Plaza is the official locale for the Democrats Abroad party, but they want 25 clams at the door, which seems steep. Wayne Gretzky's has an official Obama party, but... I've never been in there and i'm scared. Am i wrong to be? Is there anywhere else i should be considering? Thoughts?

      Ooh, thanks, HermitGirl. That sounds like just the ticket.

    2. Any McCain friendly locations?

          I spotted this on CityTV's site:
          Republicans Abroad are hoping McCain surprises the pundits and winds up winning the night. They'll be at a free event at the Lone Star Texas Grill at 200 Front St. W. near Simcoe. They'd prefer an email in advance if you're coming.
