You watched all the debates, laughed at all the memes and performed your civic duty by whatever means necessary. Now all you can do is wait to see if it's Bear Hugs For Everybody or Bye, Bye, Big Bird. Whether you prefer to learn the nation's fate surrounded by your fellow city dwellers or your cable is screwed up courtesy of Superstorm Sandy, here are six spots hosting election return coverage with various degrees of seriousness:

From 7 p.m. till "President'O'Clock," the political circus comes to Williamsburg at the City Reliquary's Election Night Circus 2012. MC Matt Levy will "describe the states blow-by-blow" while the MSNBC video streams in the backyard, all soundtracked by DJs Stacheroni and Tinseltown. Rum Swing State Slings (red and blue rum punches) will be on offer whenever a swing state gets called and Brooklyn Brewery beers will be available by donation. Speaking of donations, all $5 of your admission fee will be donated to the Red Cross to help with Hurricane Sandy relief.

Because political commentary often comes across as comedy, why not cut out the middle man and have real-life comedians play political pundit for the night? The UCB Theatre puts on an Election 2012 Coverage Extravaganza with comedians Anthony Atamanuik and Ryan Karels acting as a conservative and a liberal pundit offering live commentary as the polls close. In between, enjoy politically themed bits from UCB cast members acting as campaign insiders and the like. The show begins at 8 p.m. with tickets running a recession-friendly $5.

Comedian Liam McEneaney guides you through the election results at the free Raging Election: 2012 Election Viewing Party at Gowanus' The Bell House. Starting at 7:30 p.m. they'll have CNN on the big screen, DJ Mike Doughty "spinning the jams" and punny drink specials like the Coke and Rumney and the Bahamobama Mama.

Blow off some of that pent up polling energy at (le) poisson rouge's Presidential Election Night Party tomorrow night at 8 p.m. The free dance/viewing party will be DJ'd by Herbert Holler with a special appearance by rap producer Pete Rock.

Finally, if you just want to watch the returns without the added fanfare, Liberty Hall at the Ace Hotel begins screening the results at 6 p.m. with food and drink supplied by the Breslin Bar & Dining Room. A full bar plus a specialty cocktails will be available for handling your emotions one way or the other. And over at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe they're cooking up a big pot of chili and offering 2-for-1 PBRs ($5), Brooklyn Lager ($9) and Sweet Action ($11) plus $18 bottles of wine and $6 cheese trays at their free Election Night Watch Party.
