SOTU college watch parties

Jenna Johnson

The District is one of those places where you can walk into pretty much any bar tonight and watch President Obama's State of the Union address. Links to SOTU-themed drinking games are circulating. And several D.C. college political groups plan to gather for pizza eating, dessert enjoying, pundit impersonating and unity building.

The Georgetown University College Democrats will watch the address in the Alumni Lounge, eat pizza and pump themselves up for the mid-term elections, said sophomore Bryan Woll, 20, president of the group.

"What I am looking forward to, and what others are looking forward to, is that return to excitement," he said. "It's exciting for us. We played a small part in getting Obama elected."

Across town, the Catholic University College Republicans will gather in the student center to enjoy three cakes: One for each of the GOP's latest victories (Gov. Bob McDonnell in Virginia, Gov. Chris Christie in New Jersey and Senator-elect Scott Brown in Massachusetts).

"It's always fun to sit with your fellow politics majors and to hear our own commentary on the events, as well as the reactions to the speech itself," said junior Alexandra C. Smith, 20, chairman of the group.
