Okay, let’s face it: Tomorrow’s going to be a long day. More than likely, it’s going to be the kind of long day that stretches on long into the night, too. And when it’s done, about half of the country is going to be happy, while the other half is just furiously pissed off.
But whether a Democrat, a Republican or an Independent, a person’s gotta eat. And all over Philly, cafes and pubs alike are making sure you don’t spend election night alone and hungry with viewing parties and special Election Day deals.
