Democratic party? Invite only



TAMPA -- Unless you've already been invited, don't plan to watch election results with the official Barack Obama campaign tonight at the Tampa Marriott Waterside.

The Volunteer Appreciation Night is open only to volunteers, staffers and local leaders who have worked for the campaign. No other official election eight events are planned, though some Obama supporters are reportedly throwing their own. (Here's one: Tre Amici at the Bunker, which has held watch parties for every debate, is hosting an election night party, from 7 to 11 p.m. in Ybor City, 1907 N 19th St.)

The official Republican event is more open. The party at the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park is open to volunteers and supporters. Presumably the opponents will be partying elsewhere.
