What better way to watch Saturday night's Democratic presidential debate than with a few beers? In New York City, a number of bars and groups are holding parties for watching the debate from Des Moines, Iowa. The face-off will feature Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley.
Here are a few spots to check out Saturday evening in Manhattan, Brooklyn and beyond:
The New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (which supports Bernie Sanders) is holding a debate watch party at the 12th Street Ale House, on Second Avenue. It's limited to 75 attendees. Corner Social at 321 Lenox Ave., near West 126 Street in Harlem, has a watch party, starting at 8 p.m. EST.

Or, you can head to Angel of Harlem, on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, at 7 p.m. EST for a watch party, debate bingo and an afterparty. There will be specials on food and drinks, but you have to RSVP, which you can do here for free.
Bareburger on Second Avenue, in the East Village, is having a "Burgers for Bernie" watch party featuring a trivia game. You can RSVP if you're worried about getting a seat, and bear in mind that there's a two-drink minimum, although those are being offered at happy-hour prices.
Brooklynites who support Bernie Sanders can also go to Commonwealth, at 12th Street and Fifth Avenue, starting at 8 p.m. EST.
Clinton supporters might head instead to the Bronx, where Joe's Place, which offers steak and seafood along with a variety of cocktails, is having a watch party.
In Astoria, Queens, the Raven's Head Public House and the group Queens Drinking Liberally will host a party that includes drink specials, DNAinfo has reported. Get there early to secure a good view of one of the bar's six TV screens or its 80-inch projector screen.
