State of the Union 2012 - Parties and Games
Submitted by Justin Krebs on Tue, 01/24/2012 - 9:53am.
Tonight, as the President takes to the podium in the Capitol, members of Drinking Liberally take to bars across America. This is the 9th year running that Drinking Liberally is hosting State of the Union Watch Parties, and you're invited to join.
Find your local chapter on our DL map and see if they've promoted a special watch party for tonight.
And whether you're a host or a guest, bring some games to your local event.
Here's a link to SOTU Bingo Cards created by Kathleen Thompson, our host in Mid-Cities Texas. These cards are pre-designed for you to print-and-play.
And our Baltimore host, Robyn Henry, took it a different route: she supplied the words and you can fill in your own Bingo cards.
Her instructions: "Before the speech, fill in each space on a 5x5 grid from the choices below. During the speech, mark off each thing as it is heard or seen. The first person to BINGO and the person closest to blackout will win a prize."
