Everyone welcome at debate-watching parties tonight

Plainfield and the rest of the country will be riveted to their TVs this evening as presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney meet in the first of three scheduled debates -- tonight's to focus on domestic issues.

Council President Adrian Mapp and his wife Amelia are inviting all to watch the debate on large-screen TV and enjoy refreshments and conviviality, all at the Mapp's home at 535 West 8th Street.

The evening gets under way at 8:00 PM (the debate starts at 9:00 PM). Those attending are asked to bring a donation of nonperishable items or canned goods for donation to local feeding programs -- a signature activity at New Democrats events.

Republicans who may want to hang out with political soulmates have another option involving Plainfield hometown kid Assemblyman Jon Bramnick.

Bramnick will be headlining at candidate event at 7:00 PM at Creative Wallcoverings and Interiors in New Providence (see more here).

The NJ Bar Association has awarded Bramnick the title 'Funniest Lawyer in NJ', and Jon will put his talents to work on behalf of local candidates.

All are invited to stay on for the televised presidential campaign debate.

Creative Wallcoverings and Interiors is at 560 Central Avenue in New Providence.

I'll be at Adrian and Amelia's -- sporting my new walking stick (no crutches, yay!).

Dan, I'm surprised you didn't mention the debate-watching gathering at Plainfield High School! You may not have heard--although the Obama campaign put the word out by email several days ago.

On second thought, I'm really not surprised, because if you've heard--and I'm sure you must have--you would know it's hosted by Assemblyman Green and Rashid Burney, not two of your favorite people.
