Election Day is looooong — so long, that the only proper way to cap it off is with beer and a party. We’re pulling together a list of some of the groups that are hosting election night events you can hit up tonight if you want to partake:

(And if there’s a party happening that’s not here, tweet us @billy_penn and we’d be happy to add it.)
