A Few Election Day Festivities I hit Up, and Who I Saw
Yesterday I hit up a few spots to check out election day festivities. In years gone by politicians used to go to the 4th Street Deli on Election Day, and I did too. In the past few years they started going to Relish as well. Last year it seemed that most chose Relish (7152 Ogontz Ave) over the Bella Vista stop.
This year I went to Relish and it was great fun, plus the food is DELICIOUS!!
