Your election night party planner

Hella baller.

Everyone loves a horserace. And everyone loves predicting winners from, say tomorrow’s primary election. We can’t 100% predict winners, but maybe we can infer the candidates’ confidence based on the type of party they throw on election night. Sure, why not?

Primary election night parties run the full spectrum – some folks are going big, and some are literally going home.The Bus is here to help you figure which is which, with our handy rating system of Baller, Smaller, and Have to Holler? The names say it all (except for that last one, which means a private party).

    As to McGinn’s party: 1) Kudos for being the youth candidate and going to an actual club. 2) Is it really smart to be the only major guy out of downtown? Now we all have to trek up the Hill for ya!
