Even if they're not passionate about a particular political candidate, people have plenty of opinions on where to grab a beer (or something a little stronger) while watching the election results come in tonight. Here's a roundup of the recommendations.

Washingtonian highlights 10 of their picks for Election Night merriment, including election-themed cocktails at Lincoln and, if a Wednesday hangover's your goal, partisan-themed shots at Del Frisco's Grille.

It's a no-brainer that Eater's picks for where to watch the debates, from Black Cat to Jay's Saloon, would be natural choices for checking out election returns as well.

Nightlife maven Nycci Nellis of "The List Are You On It?" shares her picks with WTOP, including Sonoma's viewing party and Capitol City Brewing Company's all-day beer happy hour.

Arlingtonians know who to turn to for picks focused in their county: ARLNOW, who recommends a party at the Cinema Drafthouse and themed cocktalis at TNT Bar, among others.

Borderstan's all about Local 16, Busboys & Poets, Cobalt and Policy when it comes to city-centric picks for tonight's activities.

Huffington Post readers will be headed to such places as Art & Soul, the Brightest Young Things party and The Coupe.

If you'd like to discuss the meme of the week while watching the results, there's always Reddit's meetup at Rocket Bar (readers weigh in with some other picks, too, like DC Reynolds).

City Paper highlights parties and deals around town, and lets you know that its editors will be spending the night at the Black Squirrel.
