EAT

Fishy Politics

DRINK

Rock the Vote

Schubas Tavern 3159 N. Southport Ave. 773-525-2508

The Lakeview bar's election results viewing party includes a set from rock band The Statutes of Liberty, a red and blue champagne toast and $2.50 Goose Island 312 drafts. Show your "I Voted" sticker and score a free dessert with an entree purchase. No cover. 7 p.m.

Ballots and Beer

The Wrightwood Tap 1059 W. Wrightwood Ave. 773-868-8073

After you vote for real, head to the Occupy Bar 1 bash at this Lincoln Park bar or sibling bars McGee's, Duffy's, Durkin's, Redmond's or Maeve to fill out a ballot for their mock election and enter a raffle for a 50-inch TV. The bars celebrate the 99 percent with 99-cent Bud products. No cover.
