Voting Makes You Sexier
Theres a slow burning under your skin. It started as a small, manageable distraction and soon spread into a full-blown rash. Its official: Youve got Election Fever. The only known remedy for this disorder is complete surrender and submersion into all things Wonk.
Start your morning with a trip to the polls. If you forget, you dont get to play with everyone else, because that little I Voted sticker is your badge to bargains! Flash it with pride at Tates Comics and gain both a 20 percent discount off any one item and the respect of your peer group. Find Tates at 4566 North University Drive in Lauderhill. Call 954-748-0181, or visit tatescomics.com. Next, take a needed vacation to Girl Land and visit Jezebel (1980 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Along with a 30 percent discount on any one, glorious item, Jezebel is peppering its aisles with giant sale sections (translation: holiday shopping!), all of which is off-limits unless youre wearing your I Voted sticker.
Of course, the social scene gets revved up when the voting booths close; thats when watch parties start. See the numbers trickle in for your candidate at Cinema Paradiso (503 SE Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale). The free shindig will begin at 7 p.m. and features election coverage from various television stations split among the main theater screen inside, televisions in the lobby, and a projector screen outside in Paradisos courtyard. Since no party, political or otherwise, is complete without gnoshing, Paradiso will feature food and drink specials all night. Call 954-525-FILM, or visit fliff.com.
