Election Night offers a barometer of the people's political will. But it also makes for a fun bar night. Quench your thirst for minute-by-minute election coverage, and beer, at south Minneapolis watering hole Pat's Tap. Drink $3 Bell's taps all night Tuesday as the results pour in. Sister restaurant Bryant-Lake Bowl will offer the same deal during its own ballot-watching bash.
