Of all the places I’ve been tonight, Lincoln restaurant has the most spirit. The place is packed and the crowd is going crazy. But the dozens of red and blue balloons can’t make up for the mediocre performance of both candidates in the food department.

But it’s getting late and I have a feeling you’re more interested in drinks than food, suffice it to say the Obama Kahlua pork belly was burnt and the Obama sweet potato tartlet never even made it to our table. The highlight was Mitt’s duck corndog, so Romney won here as decisively as he’ll win Montana.

Onto the drinks. As in politics, what you get is not always what it seems. The Donkey and The Elephant cocktails look absolutely nothing like the ones I received in a press release. Yes, the bar was slammed, but my dining companions refused to even vote here. Take a look and judge for yourself.
