Colleagues visiting from out of town seeking suggestions for a bar or restaurant to watch election returns. Seaport/Downton. Thoughts?

    Not a big fan of the place, but I got an e-mail from Fleming's steak house saying they were having $6 apps and election coverage all night tonight.

      the Globe is reporting that roads in the South Boston seaport will be closed beginning at 6 pm for Romney's party.

        Summer Street and D street will close in a few hours but the Globe reports that a lot of the seaport restaurants have been atken over by private special events.

        Dont think about Copley or park plaza areas either.

        I wouldn't mind watching the Fernet-Branca Barback Olympics at the Royale tonight.

          I'm not familiar with the "White Hipster Mixology Olympics" to which you are referring but watching that instead of election returns? Respectfully, I find that a bit perplexing.

          Maybe that was meant tongue-in-cheek and I'm just dense.

          Not Seaport/Downtown but Parlor Sports in Inman is going to have the volume on tonight for election coverage.

            Faneuil hall turned out to be a popular gathering spot. I think many bars got a spike in business from election night
