Join us for a special Happy Hour at The Playwright Irish Tavern on 35th street and then stay to watch all the fun, drama and action unfold as the Democratic Candidates for President square off for the first debate.    Arrive at 6:30pm for socializing and cocktails at the bar, you can also grab a bite to eat with others in the group then sit back and catch all the action on dozens of large monitors with crystal clear sound.

This event is first and foremost meant to be a social gathering that is open to all members and friends to become more educated on all the potential candidates.  This is NOT a forum to bash, trash or start your own debate with others at the party. If you attend all we ask is that if you feel strongly about any candidate you keep your comments educated and dignified.  If you feel like you may get too passionate and cause arguing we would appreciate if you watched at home!

Here is how it works: The doors will open at 6:30pm for the 2nd floor bar area.  We will have space set aside for socializing, eating and drinking.  Come for Happy Hour and The Debates or just Happy Hour or just The Debates, it’s up to you.  Either way it will be a fun evening.

Do I have to be a Democrat to attend? NO. NO. NO! This event is open to all to get an idea of what the candidates are all about.  We will have parties for the Debates with the president as well.

Cost: $5- pay ahead or at the door.  This covers the room rental and your hosts food and drink


Can I come alone? Yes, 98% of those attending will be coming on their own.

Is there food available?  Yes they have an awesome menu, separate checks no problem.  If you wish to sit and eat with the group.  Please arrive at 7pm.
