SOTU at a bar in Portland, Ore.?

Is there a bar in Portland, Oregon where I can watch the State of the Union Speech tonight (which I think airs at 6:00 Pacific)??

Or a bar that might be willing to put it on without everyone in the bar giving me the stink eye?

If you just need the SOTU, and not necessarily to watch it in a bar, Hulu is streaming it live. (And yes, the speech starts at 9:00 EST/6:00 Pacific).

If you are looking for political folks (of the progressive persuasion) to see it with, there is a watch party at The Guild (on Burnside).

I haven't been in the bar, but The Guild Public House will be airing it on three screens, including a 92-inch screen. Happy hour until the pres speaks. 1101 E Burnside.

The White House is streaming it live along with an "enhanced viewer experience".

The brand new Guild Public House on E. Burnside is having a big SOTU viewing party.

(The pub's actual website seems to be a bit flaky right now.

Definitely check out The Guild. It's owned by Jesse Cornett, a longtime politico, and the crowd will definitely be expecting SOTU, not college basketball or anything else.
