Polls Are Open for 7 Days at Legendary Barney's Beanery to "Rock the Beer Vote" in Tallying Spree to "Decide" 2008 Presidential Election

Voting Starts Tuesday, Oct. 28 to 'Vote Early and Vote Often'

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2008) - Barney's Beanery, the third oldest restaurant in Los Angeles and venerable roadhouse/famed celebrity hangout, will be hosting its third "Rock the Beer Vote" with patrons getting a head start casting their votes beginning on Tuesday, October 28th and running until polls close at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 4th.

As with the Kerry vs. Bush and Super Tuesday competitions, all presidential candidates will be assigned a brand beer: John McCain (Bud Lite) and Barack Obama (Stella Artois) with each premium brew sold at $3-a-glass (to promote continuous voting) and the colorful photo images of Barack Obama and John McCain on the spigots. At the three Roadhouses, bartenders will be monitoring the vote count on electronic screens in the seven-day voting marathon.

Better than an exit poll data, and more joyous than your average stodgy polling place, this method of voting allows people to have fun and voice their opinions (loudly if need be) while they vote. The original West Hollywood Beanery, as well as more recently opened roadhouses in Santa Monica on the Third Street Promenade and on Colorado Blvd. in Old Town Pasadena, will have every strategically placed TV monitor tuned to a rotating series of political commentators as the votes roll in across the land.

For those who like a side of carbs with their carbs, Barney's continues to serve up a 700-item mega menu of pure American comfort food with breakfast served at all hours: world famous burgers, pizza, burritos, pot roast, potato skins and their claim to fame, "The Second Best Chili in Los Angeles."

The three roadhouses are at 8447 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood; (323) 654-2287. Barney's Beanery, Santa Monica, 1351 3rd Street, just off of Santa Monica Blvd. on the Third Street Promenade; (310) 656-5777. Barney's Beanery - Old Town Pasadena is located at 99 East Colorado Blvd; (626) 405-9777.
