    Going out to watch the state of the union is still a thing? I’ll be at home watching the Caps game.

        Probably just people without TVs.

          Which is a lot of people in DC… I have a TV, though, and usually just listen to it on NPR. Not like there’s much to see.

      Yep. My Mardi Gras celebrations last year were ruined by people watching the SotU. No one was out trying to get plastered. Real shame.

      Yeah, if I’m gonna watch TV and have people lie to me and insult my intelligence, I want it to be Locker and Joe B. telling me the Caps are in good shape, rather than POTUS telling me that he and Congress are working towards “solutions.”

    I’ll watch whatever John Stewart says about it the next day.

      Same here. A massively-disappointing president combined with the worst congress EVER, has me seriously jaded when it comes to politics. I think I’d rather watch paint dry than watch the president tell me the country is in better shape than it really is. And I voted for him.

        But there’s been a lot less improvement than we were all led to believe.

          Jobs reports that have been worse than expected. And the number of people I know who are having a hard time finding work in their fields.

    My roommate takes SotU very seriously. He gets excited as if it were Super Bowl Sunday.

    A group of speechwriters, past, present and aspiring are gathering at The Diner, 2483 18th Street. I understand there will be a SoU bingo game…

      Let me be clear; God bless America.

    I’d watch if they instituted a “hold your over-the-top expressions of patriotism until the end” policy. Can’t stand the applause constantly interrupting the flow of the speech. Obama, despite his many, many weaknesses and disappointments, is a skilled orator. As it is, I too will get my SotU from the internet after the fact.

      The stand-up-and-clap routine feels very DDR/DPRK.

    PoP, you should have left off the “Where” and just found out how many of us are even going to watch it. My answer would have been NO.

    On another note, can someone send Shepard Fairey a bill to clean up the mess his “work” has turned into in the alley and on the rooftop at this Logan location. It was cute all those years ago, now it’s just a trashy eyesore.
