While the results are slowly coming in on election day, Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar will also be hosting it’s own Mayoral Brew Ha-Ha, where we will feature a specialty designated drink for each of the major candidates involved. Every specialty candidate drink consumed will be given one vote for that candidate. We will tabulate the votes at midnight and name the winner of the Mayoral Brew Ha-Ha. We cannot say if these results will reliably reflect either the popularity of the candidates or the drinks. The Rahm-ifications are endless.
