The Icebox adds beer and art to the nail-biting anxiety of election night with a party hosted by A Button-Pie Press’ Amanda Benton (who recently won a contest to design the poster for Obama’s American Jobs Act) and Little Chair Printing owner and ceramic artist Hope Rovelto. The entry fee partially goes toward a blue or red Solo-esque porcelain cup featuring Obama or Romney, respectively; that’ll get you all the beer you can drink from Barry’s Homebrew to soothe those nerves. The event’s name comes from the party technically being divided into two separate camps, one for the red cups and one for the blue cups, each side of the room showing election results from either MSNBC or Fox News. Dapper Dog food truck will be outside serving Romney and Obama dogs. The event is also an exhibition of posters from Benton and Rovelto that satirize the election and farcical state of American political debate. Five bucks off entry if you have a voting sticker or are a student — but remember, unlike at the polls, you’ll need to show ID.
Tue., Nov. 6, 7 p.m., $20, The Ice Box, Crane Arts Building, 1400 N. American St., facebook.com/dividedtheparty.
