Because you probably aren’t going to be at Trump Tower, sipping on that $17 “Boardroom” cocktail, here’s where to watch on Tuesday.
Misery Loves Gin Results Party at The Shanty 79 Richardson Street, Williamsburg. 6 pm: FREE.
Williamsburg distillery and bar The Shanty seems to really enjoy plying folks with free liquor, and tonight will be no exception. Thank God, as you’ll surely need it no matter what transpires. Sip on complimentary Pink Gin and Rock Rye while you bite your nails in anticipation, and when the end results are called, you’ll be able to soak up all that booze with some pizza. Keep your mouth occupied and maybe everything will be okay.
Let’s be real about this right up front– if we’re talking actual votes, Ralph Nader hasn’t exactly seen a lot of success as a presidential candidate. We’re taught that, as a third-party candidate who has run with the New Party, no party, and Green Party, Nader’s campaigns have been doomed from the start, just like those of every other non-binary (i.e. neither Democrat nor Republican) political player seeking the highest office (or really any office of consequence) in the land.
When you see a saxophone on stage at Brooklyn Bowl and know Bill Clinton is moments away from walking on, you have to wonder whether he’s going to go full Arsenio. Sadly, he did not jump in with the Wailers as they performed a couple of Marley hits, “One Love” and “Could You Be Loved,” at last night’s fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. But it’s still safe to say everyone who forked over $250 and up got their money’s worth.
Elliot Crown is an actor who likes the political, an activist who loves creativity. Mash that together and you get one of New York’s only political puppeteers. His puppets have been widely covered, but people rarely see the man behind the mask. Aside from his political theater, Crown also works “about 14 jobs, like all actors in New York” and appeared in the movie Isn’t It Delicious. Crown, who has been “45 for quiet a while,” shares his East Village apartment with many of the papier mâché masks he created – like the Donald Trump with $-eyes or Hillary Clinton’s Pinocchio nose.
