Where to Watch: Portland Bars Showing the Presidential Debates

Where to Watch: Portland Bars Showing the Presidential Debates

President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will meet in three televised debates this year, each beginning at 6 PM: October 3, October 16 and October 22. In between, Vice President Joe Biden will spar with counterpart Paul Ryan on October 11. While these conversations might shed light on what’s in store for America, there’s no reason to face that future empty handed. Below are several bars throughout Portland where you can contemplate our government, and the U.S. political process in general, with a brew or cocktail in hand.
