Obamarama?
Posted November 3rd, 2008 - 8:46 pm by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Anyone planning to watch the Obamarama election madness tomorrow?
I was thinking to go to Koerner's with a friend after class (possibly around 3... or around 5.. depends on the likely cancellation of a seminar class) and watching it there, since they have TVs and $8 pitchers.

Ha, I said Koerner's but I actually meant the Gallery because I know they have TVs.

The Gallery is in the UBC Student Union Building on the Main floor. Which is really close to the bus loop, in case you aren't familiar with UBC.

Exact time isn't confirmed yet. Is there a time good for you? Anyone know what time the election coverage starts?

I'll be sure to drop by although probably not before 6pm. Hopefully you'll still be there and only half drunk if you're planning on starting at 3pm.

Hey guys,

I would be down to watch as well, I know that the International Relations Student Association is also having an event for it:

Obama vs. McCain - US presidential elections results viewing party - Nov. 4

Date: Tuesday, November 4, 2008
Time: 6:00pm - 10:00pm
Location: Liu Institute for Global Issues, Multipurpose Room

There will also be panel speakers

Here is the link from facebook:

It looks like the viewing begins at 6 p.m.
I would be good for going to this or going to the gallery instead since it wouldn't be as packed and it would be a more relaxed environment.

Let me know what you think.

I saw the an ad for the thing at the Liu Institute, but yeah, I think I would rather meet in a relaxed environment.

So we're meeting around 4ish, but if you can come later that's fine too.

I'm bringing some baked goods to share!

Hi Guys,

I'm actually at Koerner's Pub on campus because the Gallery was really full. We've got a table here. Anyone who wants to join come on down. Call me if you need directions: 778-233-7336.

Sorry about the last minute change and any inconvenience!
