The Melbourne Cup/ Voting

So Americans are starting to head to the polls right now – it will be around noon here tomorrow when all of the results are in – and to ease the tension, I’m just getting back from a Melbourne Cup after-party.

The Melbourne Cup is an Australian Horse race that is only about 2-3 minutes long — but the parties for it are all day events.

There were about 60 tables at the party that filtered into this bar — and each table decides on their own theme — hence the pirates & Greek goddess outfits:

Since all of the folks at the party had been drinking since 10am – nobody really wanted to talk politics, so it was actually a pretty politically-calming place to be.

And now it’s bedtime — happy voting to everyone!

    You are so lucky you will be awake for the results. It will probably be 3 or 4am here. A lot of people are staying up all night – there are lots of parties etc. Sadly, since my first paper is due on Friday, an all-night party is not in my best interest.
