We sure know how to party!

I’ve been charged with posting some photos of tonight’s impromptu party on Capitol Hill: Broadway and Pike: celebrating Obama’s victory. I spoke to the SPD on my way home and they said they were going to let the party burn out on it’s own (unless it turned violent), so expect it to continue going until the beer runs out. There were probably in excess of 1,000 people celebrating at this one intersection on the hill, undoubtedly after part of the 1st and Pike crowd joined the crowd.

    These photos turned out great!

    The SPD was really awesome last night, just standing there and smiling and letting us celebrate. I really appreciate that they didn’t try to make everyone go away.

    I heard (though haven’t verified) that they finally tried to break it up around 3am. Folks grabbed brooms and started cleaning up the mess. Apparently the police thanked everyone through bull horns. I need to find out if this is true….it’s awesome.
