What better way to decompress after a long day of hitting refresh on news sites than partying with a bunch of people running for office? Election night parties in San Francisco are excellent for people watching, shmoozing, and collectively gasping with joy or groaning in pain with each Department of Elections update (which, by the way, will be at 8:45 p.m., 9:45 p.m., 10:45 p.m, and approximately midnight).
