Barack Obama’s Acceptance Speech Tonight

By

Hiya Hooligans.

Barack Obama’s big night is tonight at Invesco Field in Denver, and there are a couple of options for you if you’d like to be in community on this historic night.

The Democratic Party and the Obama campaign folks are hosting a viewing party at the YMI Cultural Center on Eagle Street downtown. Starting at 7:30pm –

Susan Fisher will speak, as will Mr. Hayes of the NAACP, among others.

First, we’ll watch the “I Have A Dream” speech on its 45th anniversary.

Then, we’ll watch the live broadcast as Barack Obama accepts our party’s nomination for President of the United States.

A cash bar and cash food will be available.

If your into a less organized scene, then come on out to Drinking Liberally at the Asheville Brewing Company, 77 Coxe Ave. The DL crowd will begin to gather at 7pm, and the speech will be on all the screens inside and out.

Exciting!

    Hello there!
    I would so would like to come out to Asheville Brewing tonight and join in the fun. However, we will be taking it all in at home with my 93 year old mother who has been following Barack for quite some time. She has seen alot of changes in her lifetime and we want to share this with her. Have fun!

    what time is the actual speech?

  3. Gordon Smith says:

    Probably around 10pm, but Al Gore comes on before that…

    Hey, be sure to check out John Kerry’s speech from last night (about halfway down the page). Good stuff, and he really put together much of what this election is about.

    Our man in Roanoke Hank Bostwick put together an acceptance speech drinking game. Grab it here, and play responsibly.
