Super Fat Giants Tuesday!

Wow, today we have Super Tuesday voting, in which New York actually matters for a change, the Mardi Gras hurricane specials and beads, and a ticker-tape parade celebrating the Giants amazing Super Bowl victory.

First thing's first. Polling places are open 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., so if you're not a registered independent, get out there and cast your ballot. It's a big'un.

The first ticker-tape parade since the Yankees won the World Series in 2000 starts at 11 a.m. and will follow the Canyon of Heroes on Broadway, ending at City Hall (see Newsday's satellite view of the parade route). Three words: Get there early.

This is not by any means a party endorsement, but if you feel like downing one with politically minded persons after performing your civic duty, see Drinking Liberally's list of NYC bars. Proof is also having Super Tuesday specials.

If you want to avoid drunken arguments over Hillary, Huckabee or whomever, maybe go to a bar focusing more on the beads, bourbon, etc. MurphGuide compiled deals from across the city, so you should have no trouble finding a drinking deal near your polling place so you can stumble on home.

Happy Super Fat Giants Tuesday, New York!
