Trump Vs. Clinton: Where To Watch America's Election Night In Ottawa

We're gonna need more alcohol.

Whether you're a Republican, a Democrat or just someone who's here watching the reality show known as America, you know this election night is going to be huge. It's going to be the biggest election night you've ever seen.

So, get your Ken Bone sweaters for this cold November evening and be prepared to build a wall of beer bottles because Ottawa is bringing America to Canada for a night.

On Nov. 8 a number of bars across the city will be hosting events. Some will have Bernie Sanders cocktails while others will have election night bingo. In other words, Ottawa's making election night great again and you're invited.
