Election 2016: Here's where to celebrate/commiserate as the results come in


For those who don't want to watch the election results alone tonight, there are plenty of options in the Twin Cities, regardless of your political leanings. Below we have a list of parties. Some are partisan, others are decidedly neutral. Commiserate or celebrate over a friendly beer.
