Regardless of tonight's election outcome, it is very likely that you will want to be surrounded by a community of friends and family, possibly drinking alcohol. We recommend stopping by a viewing party and gathering with your fellow Ashevillians, to remind yourself--and each other--that people coming together is a powerful thing. Here's your lineup of places to watch the election results come in, plus a list of places that will reward you for voting! Where will you be heading, or will you be at home staying willfully ignorant? Let us know! Plus, city buses are FREE today to facilitate voting--get on out there, y'all!
