The third and final 2016 presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump takes place at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas this Wednesday, October 19, from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. EST, moderated by Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, and it'll be streaming live all over television and the internet.
Let’s face it. It’s been a rough election season for both sides, which is why it’s probably best for everyone’s mental health to watch this verbal brawl among friends, neighbors, and strangers while drinking booze (lots of booze). Here is a roundup of several Detroit-area bars hosting debate parties on televisions and projection screens. Make sure to get there early to ensure your seat.
