The SF Mayoral Debate Drinking Game

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


Tonight is the first and perhaps only 2015 San Francisco Mayoral Debate, and in our modern democracy any political debate calls for a drinking game. The 6:30 p.m. debate is being streamed live on the League of Women Voters website and the SFGovTV YouTube channeland we’re supplying this San Francisco Mayoral Debate drinking game to make your engagement in public policy discussion feel a little less dorky.

NOTE: If you are attending this League of Women Voters mayoral debate in person at the UCSF Mission Bay Genentech Hall, realize it is the custom that you not drink alcohol there.
