7 Presidential Election Watch Parties, Freebies and Food Specials [Updated]

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 8:00 AM


Gut Check is ready for the 2012 presidential election. Months of punditry, the presidential and vice-presidential debates and our Facebook newsfeed have prepared us ad nauseam, all leading up to tomorrow's presidential election.

Naturally, watching the returns is a lot more exciting for Gut Check when great food and drink is involved, whether it's at a local watch party or through election food freebies (and yes, we know, it's illegal but whatever).

Here are seven presidential election watch parties and food freebies to consider after visiting polling places tomorrow. Did we forget something? Let us know in the comments section.

Update: Gut Check continues to post new specials and watch parties as we learn them.

White Castle In honor of the presidential election, White Castle locations across the country are promoting a voting opportunity of its own that pits its new sweet potato waffle fries against its original crinkle cut fries. Cast a vote for which fries you prefer and as a reward White Castle will furnish a coupon for free fries.

Ben & Jerry's Gut Check phoned Ben & Jerry's (6380 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-721-8887) in the Delmar Loop to learn if it was selling its Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream ice cream flavor because, obviously. Happily we learned it is selling Americone Dream, in small ($3.99) and large ($4.99) cups for members of Colbert Nation.

Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis Compared to the election watch party at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; 314-535-4660), opting to view the returns at home seems pretty lame. Its watch party coincides with artist Jonathan Horowitz's "My Land/Your Land: Election '12" exhibition in the museum's lobby, with eats provided on-site by food truck 2 Girls 4 Wheels. The nail-biting begins at 7 p.m. and lasts till the election results are in.
