After a long election season, it all comes down to one night. Make it last — we could be here all night — with these specials by doing your civic duty and flashing your “I Voted” sticker.
Rochelle’s(205 Chrystie St.): Slam a free shot of whiskey in relief that it’s all over by flashing your sticker at this old school New York bar, celebrating three years in the Lower East Side this week. This is also one of the few places where the party will go on until there’s a winner called!
Harding’s (32 E. 21st St.): Show the bartender you voted and get a $5 house cocktail, beer or wine. You can watch the results roll in at the bar in the presence of some serious Americana: a 117-year-old flag. The bar will offer free snacks to all guests from 9-10 p.m. and raffle off prizes throughout the night.
Añejo Hells Kitchen (668 10th Ave.):Make that free shot of Milagro tequila as your reward for voting the first step in your exploration of the restaurant’s collection of Mexican spirits. They’ll be showing the election polls on TV all night long, so pace yourself.
Lo-Res Bar (136 Metropolitan Ave.): The downstairs bar at Williamsburg’s Nitehawk Cinema will be showing election results (until last call at 1 a.m.) and offering all-night happy hour prices on draft beer and well drinks to anyone who did their civic duty.
Playa Betty’s (320 Amsterdam Ave.): Get a free shot of this Upper West Side surf shack’s signature Frozen Paloma topped with a blue liqueur floater with your sticker. And even if the election didn’t go your way, you can still have it your way with the Build Your Own Taco Platter ($14.95) with patriotic tricolor tortillas.
The Meatball Shop (all NYC locations): Wear your “I Voted” sticker but make sure to use a napkin so you’re not wearing the sauce from your free order of Mini Buffalo Chicken Balls.
Schmackary’s Bakery (362 W. 45th St.): If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s cookies. The first 50 customers wearing an “I Voted” sticker get a free T-shirt with the slogan “Make Cookies Great Again!” (which can also be had for $16) at the shop’s original location near Times Square.
The Way Station (683 Washington Ave.): The Prospect Heights home for “Doctor Who” fans is staying grounded in the real world on election night with all-night happy hour with your “I Voted” sticker and free pizza for all from 7-8 p.m.
Krispy Kreme(2 Penn Plaza, Amtrak level): Voters commuting home after the big day can grab a free hot, fresh doughnut right off the conveyor belt at Krispy Kreme.
