State of the Union viewing parties: Where to watch in Philly

Pete Souza

Everyone is really excited to take to social media for Obama’s sixth State of the Union Address tonight. If environmental issues and immigration trigger your anxiety, here are a few places around the city that will be hosting viewing parties where you can get some things off of your chest and maybe even play some bingo.

Drinking Liberally believes there is no better place for debate than a barstool and no better accessory than a cold pint. They will be hosting a watch party at the upstairs bar at the new 2nd Story Brewing Co. at Front and Chestnut streets starting at 6 p.m., leaving plenty of time for discussion and drinking. This might be a good place to try out the 2015 State of Union Address Drinking Game.

For those fracking protestors heard in the background of today’s Tom Wolf inauguration, PennEnviroment will be having their viewing party at Cavanaugh’s Headhouse at Second and Lombard streets, complete with climate bingo and cheap booze.

Temple College Democrats will be huddling around after their general body meeting in the Temple University Student Center 223 at 13th Street and Montgomery Avenue at 8:30 p.m.

All of those around UPenn’s campus can congregate at the Stouffer House on 37th and Spruce streets around 9 p.m. to watch and discuss what Obama has up his sleeve this time around. Also, more bingo.
