Let's get ready to ruuumble! DAA's Debate Watching Party this Friday


This friday at 8pm at The Sacramento on El Salvador 5729 in Palermo Hollywood, Barack "Any time, Any where, Bring it on!" Obama takes on John "Go ahead...Make my day" McCain in a rated P for Presidential, smack down debate.

Democrats Abroad Argentina is organizing the Debate Watching Party as a fundraiser so there will be a very reasonable entrance charge of 10 pesos which includes 2 screens one in English, (the other in Espa├▒ol so invite your Argentine friends to learn about our electoral process ) Proceeds will also go towards their continued efforts to register voters and in particular fund printing for "No Postage Necessary" envelopes for the Federal Write-in Absentee Ballots. As an extra they are also helping people take advantage of FedEx's "election special" which will get you a rate of $15 rather than their usual $50.

Due to the late conventions, if you want to have your vote counted this year you will very likely need to go the FedEx route to have it arrive in time. If you are on the fence on whether you should go through this effort, give yourself extra motivation and check out the NYtimes Election map and see where your state stands on your candidate. Your vote can really make a difference in this election!

Also in between watching Obama and McCain swap elbows, cloth-lines and body slams and enjoying a beverage at the bar, consider volunteering your time for this event. They need help to greet people at the door, register voters and sell Obama buttons and shirts.

This is one of those golden opportunities for expats that I've written about previously. If you are new in town, it's a great way to meet folks. If you are not so new in town, like me...it's a great way to expand your network. I've already volunteered myself! For more details on how you can volunteer, contact Maria Ramirez of Democrats Abroad Argentina or let me know and I'll put you in touch.

And in case you are wondering...yes, that is Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka my favorite from way back when. I think he even invented the move off the top rope. (photo from the wrestlingmuseum.com)

Who was your favorite WW(F) wrestler?
