This has been one of the most contentious presidential election cycles in recent history. We have been bombarded on television, radio and of course social media. Families are split, friends are no longer talking and everyone is stressed out. The culmination of way too many months of campaigning will be coming to a head soon and a new president is a cause for celebration.
The people at Taste Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta would like to extend their invitation to some peace, well, maybe a bit of shouting and nail biting, during their Election Night Extravaganza on November 8, 2016, which runs from 7pm to 12am. There will be two big movie screens indoors with AC to keep you cool and there will be one screen poolside.
"Presidential elections only come around every four years, but whether you are a political junkie or just a dabbler, they provide brilliant viewing usually deep into the night," says Laura Gelezunas, Party Sponsor & Boardwalk Realty Sales Agent, "This election cycle has shown us the pompous, the controversial and more silly pundits that can be counted and all turn into comedy gold. So why watch the coverage alone when you can watch it with friends?"
