Presidential Debates

The third and final presidential debate took place last night at Lynn University in Boca Raton. President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney sparred over various foreign policy issues, but seemed to agree on one thing: their allegiance to Israel.

The elephants not in the room at Monday night's final presidential debate at Lynn University?

Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers. 

President Obama and Mitt Romney barely touched on our own hemisphere, sticking mostly to the Middle East and China in a debate that may be most remembered here for what wasn't discussed.

During presidential debate nights, people in Miami may not congregate around giant screens at restaurants and bars, Super Bowl-style, as they do in Washington, D.C.

However, there are some places in Miami where you can watch the debates, whether you prefer watching the event with a group, want a steady flow of cocktails, or just wish to escape your abuelo's or your sister's running commentary at home (list of watch parties and restaurants/bars follows).
