Election Night Socializing: TV/Online Immersion v. Human Contact?

ACTUAL HUMAN CONTACT FILTER: Another election-night question, but more specifically: On Tuesday, I have been invited to a few parties, and there are some bands playing election-themed shows around town, but —the question I ask you is— should I even go out? I'm conflicted, as this political stuff is so consuming and I like to dart around on the web and on tv (and yap on metafilter) when things are happening; I've stayed at home during all the debates and primaries stuff, to the growing complaint of friends who invite me out to things. Are any of you going out on Election night? Or is it more fun for political junkies to just sit in front of the opium den of internet and tv? What do you consider more healthy? I know the debates on Metafilter was some of the most fun I've ever had, particularly the Internets moment. Can actual human contact beat that?
