We had a great time at The Alamedan's Election Party on Tuesday night at Blue Danube, and we've got the pictures to prove it. A few dozen people stopped by for a glass of wine and the returns, including the mayor, some members of Alameda's City Council, school board and hospital board and a bevy of local candidates. The Alameda Sun's Dennis Evanosky even stopped by early to help us decorate (thanks Dennis!) while The Alamedan's team and Patch's Analisa Harangozo cranked out the night's news.
