Starting at 5 p.m., both locations of the Angry Elephant (19314 Hwy. 281 N. Suite 107 and 23535 W. I-10, Suite 1101) will be tuned in to Thursdays Fox News Republican Presidential Debate in Cleveland. 

The first round of debates starting at 4 p.m. consists of presidential hopefuls Rick Perry, Rick Santorum,  Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki and Jim Gilmore. These candidates are currently running with the lowest poll approval ratings. 

Then comes the big guns. The primetime cast will include Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie and John Kasich. At 23 percent in poll ratings, Trump is the front runner of the GOP. The debate will begin at 8 p.m. Central Time. 

If you're looking for a little more fun to go along with your drink and politics, Dorcol Distilling Company (1902 S. Flores St.) is also hosting Debate Night, facetiously nicknamed the Donald Trump Debates, followed by the airing of Jon Stewart's final Daily Show at 10 p.m. Dorćol promotes inebriated commentary, Debate Bingo and cocktails at their soiree.
