November 8, 2016: The culminating struggle between two of the most polarizing figures in US history, to determine which will win the planet’s superlative public office. The last thing you need is more stress. So why don’t you skip the cable news exit poll punditry and join WIRED and OZY for a drink and some intelligent conversation?
Tonight, OZY’s editor in chief Carlos Watson is hosting a livestreamed cocktail party from the bohemian Washington DC restaurant/bookstore/theater/bookstore Busboys and Poets. The salon will feature smorgasboard of guests from across the political, cultural, and artistic spectrum: Senator John McCain, Patti Solis Doyle, Jim Messina, Congressman Joe Kennedy, Kellyanne Conway, and former Director of the CIA, John McLaughlin. Plus Chance the Rapper, because why the hell not?
But really, the biggest draws are WIRED’s own Issie Lapowsky and Davey Alba, who will be reporting live from the Trump and Clinton campaign headquarters in Manhattan. Show starts at 6pm EST, and runs until 12am (or broadcast satellites fall out of the sky due to the your-candidate-didn’t-win armageddon).
