Some folks will spend this Friday night imbibing, while some will be glued to their TVs watching Barack Obama and John McCain duke it out in the first presidential debate.
And some will do both. For them, there are several Web sites out there featuring debate-themed drinking games. No, I’m not kidding. Here are three:
Comedy Central has one.
So does author DL Schleicher’s blog
I found this one on Huffington Post
And if a debate and an economic crisis aren’t enough reason to drink, here are The Nibble’s recipes for candidate cocktails Barack Rocks and McCain Straight Up. (Barack Rocks is pictured above) Both are too fruity for my taste, but go ahead if that’s your bag. Also, here are the McCain Martini and the Obamatini. Again not my style.
I think Bourbon is the perfect American drink for an American debate, now that Bud has gone all Belgian. But that’s just one man’s one vote.
And please, debate-watch responsibly.
