Watch Tonight's Debate in Crown Heights

(locals take in the VP debate at 739 Franklin last week)

It's a great night for politics in Crown Heights - you can get your local updates at the CHCA meeting at 7:30 (see post below) and then saunter across the street to catch the 2nd presidential debate at 9pm at Little Zelda or 739. As reported on DNAInfo, the local crowd is a fun one for debate-watching.

Also, if, like ILFA, you're wasting your day checking random polling sites and politiblogs, check out this fantastic graphic from fivethirtyeight.

  3. Maybe I am reading into your comment wrong, MikeF,but there seems to be quite a bit of sarcasm towards local businesses hosting these fundraisers. If I am not, what's wrong with bars, coffee shops, or candy stores serving as a locality for people to congregate in masses and discuss their views on politics, objectively?

    These places have been quite electric during the debates with an energy I have not felt in ANY of these places on their normal BUSIEST nights.

    May you find the enemy you seem to seek.

    See you again on 10/22, for the next round of debates.

  6. Not seeking any enemies...just thought the comment was a bit odd seeing at 3:51 was just asking a basic question. Anyhow, I read into it wrong. Apologies and YES, will see you again on the next and final debate.

  7. 10/22 hasn't happened yet, but I believe I am being objective when I state that they will again win.

  8. just ignore MikeF. he likes stirring things up. (and, yes, there's some passive aggressive behavior there too.)

    reading ILFA will be much more pleasant if you just ignore him.
