View as Map

Last week, we brought you a list of bars and restaurants hosting parties and drink specials for presidential debate viewers. We've also mapped out where to eat and drink your Election 2012 decisions with menu polling gimmicks. Now that it's Biden and Ryan's turn at tonight's 9 p.m. vice presidential matchup, let's take a look at the flip side: where to go to avoid the presidential debates as much as possible. If for whatever reason you are over the whole thing, here's 11 not-so-political spots in DC where tonight will be business as usual. OK, so this being DC, someone might tune a television to CNN, but it won't be a big, huge deal.

Got any other suggestions? Leave 'em in the comments.
