Let’s be honest: This election has been a mess. A disgrace. A total disaster. S-A-D. And that’s to paraphrase one of the candidates. But Houston’s comedy scene has this train wreck covered in a way cable news could never hope to compete: with plenty of libations. At Rec Room’s Political Science Theater 3000: The Final Frontier, all bets are off. On Election Day/New Apocalypse Eve, be among friends for all the nail-bitingly close vote counts. Rec Room co-founder Stephanie Wittels Wachs promises popcorn, a cash bar, bingo cards, live political commentary, coloring books and even piñatas for some much-needed tension release. If democracy doesn’t survive and the Great Orange Poll Rig of 2016 indeed comes to pass, the Rec Room might be the last Houston hot spot left standing. Spend your final hours in the comfortable embrace of young local comedians and greet your future dictators with a laugh; they won’t stop until “after the victor is announced.” 7 p.m. Tuesday. 100 Jackson. For information, call 713-344-1291 or visit recroomhtx.com. Free.

[Organizer's description:] Join us at Rec Room for a live-stream of election results, nail-biting, heavy-drinking, popcorn-eating, and cavorting among friends. Think of it like a hurricane party: high stakes and impending danger but so much fun! We'll have live entertainment, political commentary from Rec Room correspondents, and various recreational activities (including but not limited to pinatas and coloring books).
