  • rsvped +1 for 4th Debate Party... 2019-10-07 05:18:41 -0400

    4th Debate Party...

    We’ve reserved space at Goldene Rakete for a private screening of the fourth Democratic primary debate. It will be a great opportunity to learn more about the candidates and discuss the issues with fellow Democrats. We’ll be streaming the debates (which will have aired “live” the night before), so bring your best primary gear as we continue moving further along in primary season. We’ll also be playing debate bingo. This one should be interesting all things considered, so be sure to join us there!
