Any American Expat bars to watch the election in Mexico City?

Hello, I will be in Mexico City next week and I’m trying to find an American expat bar that will be showing the coverage of the election. I’d prefer a place skewed towards younger people if possible. I got to watch the last election in an expat bar in Buenos Aires and it was quite an event. If anybody can help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

English-language podcasts not from the U.S., the CBC, or the BBC?

Since I’ve started enjoying A(ustralian)BC’s Soundproof podcast I've come to realize that beyond the CBC and BBC, my podcasts are very U.S.-centric. What are some good English-language podcasts from other parts of the globe? While news roundtables like Sinica are good, I'm primarily interested in spoken word or well-produced radio pieces, like Everything Is Stories, This Is Actually Happening, Love + Radio, and Unfictional. Thanks!

How to work in/move to a gay supportive country where same-sex marriage is legal?

I'm looking to work in/maybe move to, a country where same-sex marriage is legal and gay people are treated equally. Any recommendations? Any advice from expatriates? I've been in a committed and loving relationship with my partner for over 6 years. Looking forward, I would like to move to a country where I can get married, live, work, raise a family and be openly gay in a country with as much respect from the law and the community as everyone else.

Are there any Americatowns?

Are there any "Americatowns" or "Little New Yorks"? I mean, are there any neighborhoods outside the U.S. that are known for having a sizable American expatriate/emigrant population and culture? I'm not talking about tourist ghettos in popular vacation spots. Nor am I interested in discussing the many American businesses and aspects of American culture that have spread outside the U.S. I just want to know if there are neighborhoods of non-American cities where a sizable, cohesive community of Americans live and work.

How can I get French citizenship as a current US citizen?

French Citizenship or Residence

I am a United States citizen who is looking to move to France. I am currently living in the Republic of Ireland but I am finding it harder and harder to maintain legal residence (even though, my mother is remarried to an Irishman and my ancestry is Irish) It seems you either have to be offered a contract for employment or be a student to stay here. I HEARD that requirements for French citizenship or permanent residence were more lenient. Does anyone have any information on this. I am NOT "highly skilled" in the slightest, unless you consider fixing PCs and Macs a skill.
