Friends don't let friends watch alone--the State of the Union Address, that is. Sure it's depressing, but if you skip it, what will you talk about at the water cooler tomorrow? Because this shit preempts all of your regularly scheduled programming, eefers has taken the liberty of rounding up a few of tonight's State of the Union watch parties for you. I know there will be beer at at least two, and solidarity at all three. Note that the parties start at different times but the address begins at 9.
