While we’re plugging away at another live blog of Maryland’s election results on Tuesday night, you’ll have a bevy of venues to choose from around Baltimore to celebrate (or commiserate) over you and your fellow voters’ decisions in 2018.

We’ve thrown together a list of spots to gather (inside, away from the rain) while the results roll in on election night. Polls shut down at 8 p.m.

Editor’s note: Drop us a line if we missed you!

29th Street Community Center: 4-8 p.m. Cast your vote, then head to the neighborhood center backing up to Barclay Elementary for community vibes, snacks and refreshments until the polls close.

Atomic Books: 8 p.m.-midnight. The folks at Hampden’s favorite bookstore/bar invite you to come take in the results. A well-intentioned rule in order here: “NO CRYING!”

The Brewer’s Art: 4 p.m.-close: Enjoy happy hour prices at the Mt. Vernon brewery all night long with proof that you voted.

The Charles: 4-11 p.m. The Fed Hill bar and restaurant offers specials galore, including free drinks for those with the sticker, $2 Bud Lights, $5 Avion margaritas, $6 taco plates and more.

Clavel: All day. Cheers to voting at the popular Remington taqueria. The restaurant is offering a free pour of Don Mateo Alto mezcal to anyone sporting the “I Voted” sticker.

Clifton Pleasure Club: 6:30-10 p.m. In line with that last bit, the Lauraville community hub is offering a place for election-season emotional support. Enjoy drink specials, along with some delicious-sounding Asian-style coconut soup.

Creative Alliance: 7-11 p.m. J. Pope, frontwoman for local hip-hop soul group J. Pope and the HearNow, plays a free show as part of the Creative Alliance’s Songster Series, followed by an Election Night after party. That “I Voted” sticker gets you a free drink.

De Kleine Duvel: 7 p.m.-midnight. Enjoy a dollar off all your drinks at Hampden’s Belgian beer hall in celebration of democracy, starting an hour before the polls close.

Golden West Cafe: 3 p.m.-close. Get a free shot and a $1 taco after showing your “I Voted” sticker.

Grunwald Club: 4-7 p.m. The 86-year-old social club in Canton hosts a party with free Chik-Fil-A and refreshments. There’ll be games, face painting, a photo booth, balloons and other fun for the kiddos, plus a cash bar for their voting parents.

Ida B’s Table: 9 p.m.-12:30 a.m. Grassroots think tank Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, which champions policies promoting the advance of African-Americans, hosts a watch party at the downtown soul food spot. Free entry and light refreshments, cash bar for drinks.

Party at the Polls on Park Ave: 5-8 p.m. Enjoy live music, snacks, refreshments and community during the final hours of the polls up on the hill at the Reservoir Hill Improvement Council, located at 2001 Park Avenue.

Peabody Heights Brewery: 5-11 p.m. The Waverly brewery opens its doors while the polls are still open, offering $2 off your first beer if you present the aforementioned sticker or some other proof that you voted.

Anyone wearing the sticker as proof of their civic engagement can enjoy $4 drafts, $5 “Bipartisan Punch,” $6 glasses of wine or a dollar off all other regular menu items.

The LaB (for students): 7 p.m.-midnight. The coffee bar and student hangout spot at Hopkins will broadcast the results as they pour in. Free popcorn included.

Wet City: 5 p.m.-close: All-night drink specials include $8 Manhattans and French 75s, plus $5 pints of the brewery/bar’s house-made Lil Woozy pale ale.

  1. Too many choices–but a GREAT guide to party for election results. Let’s hope we will not be saddened–either way drinking is in order.

    Terrific coup to get that Q&A with Franchot. Nice work.

    But…don’t think I’ll apply at Under Armour if they won’t cover my strip club expenses.
