DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Profiting from politics, businesses all over Dallas are trying to cash in on election night.
Restaurants like Greenville Avenue Pizza are making and selling presidential pizzas.
“It’s the most eaten food in America and it’s the biggest night in America,” said Sammy Mandell, owner of Greenville Avenue Pizza.
Election night is always huge for deliveries said Mandell. He thought there was an opportunity for some fun.
For $10, a customer can order the pizza that aligns with their political palette.
The dough and sauce are first baked. Then using a stencil, parmesan cheese is dumped on top and the face of the customer’s like is revealed.
“I would think they’re going to order who they’re going to vote for,” said Mandell.
Over at Ivy Tavern, bartenders are stirring and shaking up election night libations.
“I think you’re going to need a drink before the beginning, during the process and probably tomorrow again,” said Jessica Dyer, manager at Ivy Tavern in Oak Lawn.
The drinks include:
“I’m With Her”
“Make America Great Again”
“I’m Moving To Canada”
“Third Party Punch”
“Is 2020 Here Yet?
“It’s been a stressful year for politics I think, so we were just trying to lighten the mood and have a little fun,” said Dyer.
Dyer said her staff will have the TV’s glued to the results and could not care less who anyone is supporting or which drink they are leaning towards.
“Have some nice cocktails to either cheer you on or calm you down depending on which way it’s going,” said Dyer.
There are several watch parties in the area as well.
The Texas Theatre is hosting a viewing from 5:30 p.m. until 2 a.m. and will screen coverage on the big screen.
The Granada Theater is having a similar even at 7:00 p.m.
