Because We Clearly Have Nothing Better to Do Tomorrow...
...we will be live-blogging the election, beginning, most likely, in the late morning, between voting and going to Home Depot to buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Matt Pulle will be at county election HQ around 7 p.m., when early results start coming in; Jim Schutze will be contributing his essential commentary; I'll be in Farmers Branch (for a birthday party, no shit) in the early p.m.; and we'll all likely be at some of the frontrunning candidates' victory (or not) shindigs, except, of course, invite-only Ed Oakley's.
But since this is your blog too, dear Friend of Unfair Park, e-mail me during the course of the day with your experiences at the polls -- like, oh, I dunno, let's say you run into one of Harlan Crow's mercenaries or some such. Take yer cameras, all a ya. Forthcoming, of course, is Pulle's final mayoral candidates ranking, and based on late info, expect some surprises -- today and, of course, tomorrow. Oh, and if you want to have a happy tomorrow, we've still got some passes to an amazing tonight, when the astounding sorta-musical Once screens at the Angelika Film Center at 7:30, followed by a Q&A hosted by Yrs Truly and mini-performance by stars Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, which shouldn't be missed by anyone with ears. Lemme know, asap. --Robert Wilonsky
