HOUSTON – Millions of people worldwide tuned in Thursday as James Comey, the former director of the FBI, testifies to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Houstonians packed a Midtown beer garden to mix pints with politics at a Comey watch party dubbed "The Super Bowl of Washington."
Axelrad, which hosted similar parties for debates during the 2016 presidential campaign, opened its taps early for Thursday’s hearing.
A couple of hundred people -- and pets -- turned out.
The bar’s Facebook invite called Washington Politics “sports for people who weren’t good at sports.”
Axelrad’s drink menu already featured several politically-themed drinks, including the “impeachment” and a cocktail called “bad hombre”. They added the "covfefe cocktail" for the hearing.
