It's time for the Democratic National Convention in lovely, boring Denver! Are you psyched? Journalists are! Because they're going to be drunk for a week, thousands of miles from home! Just two of the many venues in which hardworking journalists will be getting their drink on the over the next few days are the bars taken over by the cable news networks. Fox's hip FOX Experience and the down-home CNN Grill. Which one looks more like the worst possible place you could ever get drunk? Let's see!
Here's Brett Baier (who??) taking you on a kick-ass tour of the FOX EXPERIENCE, which looks to be a shitty Bar & Grill with plasma tvs strewn about and Steve Doocy hanging out upstairs. S According to 5280 Magazine, Braun's features "tasty cuisine" and handicap access! S CNN, meanwhile, has taken over a bar called "Brooklyn's," which, according to Yahoo Travel, is located a convenient 50 yards from the Pepsi Center. Also: "predictable burgers and sandwiches." Try the pulled pork! And the weird CNN beer, "Red Ale." (Seriously, someone try that and tell us how it is.) S MSNBC, sadly, doesn't seem to have a stupid bar at all. Oh, also, please insert your own think piece here on the appropriateness of the 24-hour cable news networks taking over sportsbars to cover the Democratic National Convention and what that says about the state of the body politic in this miserable year of our lord 2008.
