As Election Results Come In, a Party Arises at Ginny’s

By Jeannette Park | November 7, 2012

Whether you voted Red or Blue, the scene at Ginny’s Supper Club last night was pure adrenaline and emotion. Guests snacked on dishes from a special Election menu –Wisconsin Cheddar and Mac with maple glazed bacon, the Obama Dog Chicago Style and a Red Hen dish (our Election night version of Fried Yard Bird) were the big winners of the night–and sipped Obama and Romney-themed cocktails. As the ballots were counted and the electoral votes added up, the night was all about exercising our right to vote and celebrating the best way we know how.

As President Obama said in his acceptance speech on Tuesday, “I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.”

The scene of people celebrating democracy at Ginny’s was just that.
