Here’s Why A ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Watch Party Is Actually The Place To Be Tonight


DWTS Watch Party IndyCar

Tonight, November 7, 2016 isn’t just the eve of Election Night, it’s also one of the last episodes of Dancing With the Stars Season 23. And if you’re a guy still watching the show, chances are that you’re pulling for IndyCar Racer James Hinchcliffe, who’s probably going to take it all with his partner Jenna Johnson.

So to celebrate James’ success, the Verizon IndyCar Series and ABC affiliate RTV6 are hosting an election-themed “Dancing With The Stars” watch party on Monday at Forty-Five Degrees in downtown Indianapolis. There will be “polling booths” where fans can vote for James. And to make things even juicier, if you vote six times than you’ll even get a free drink ticket. It’s like the exact opposite of how voting in America should work (vote for one person, vote multiple times, and receive benefits for your votes), but we still like it.

We know that a reality TV watch party might not be the best option when there’s MNF to be had, but if you bring your wife or girlfriend you’ll have the opportunity to meet IndyCar’s greatest drivers. Plus you’ll get to enjoy some great drinks and food on behalf of Forty-Five Degrees.

If you make it over to Forty-Five Degrees, make sure to keep an eye out for Conor Daly. He’ll be taking over our Snapchat at the party.
