Nitevibe Buzz

Helping you seek out the groove among our happy nocturnal playground is our central mission here at Nitevibe. But our most important recommendation for this week is our call to arms – GO VOTE! Nitevibe typically doesn't endorse any political issues unless it's a prop that would try to limit or extend our right-to-party. People! With so much on the line for the country we love, and our way of life - both on a local and national level, you really have to make a stance! And here's ours. Vote for Barak Obama and Vote NO on Prop 8. And finally and this is no joke, let's give our current president a lasting memory by voting to rename the SF sewage plant after George W. Bush then we can simultaneously and ceremoniously flush him down the toilet at noon Jan 20th when he gets sworn OUT of office. So Vote YES on Prop R. Finally for a different type of voting – We're moving our DJDreamteam Top10 DJ poll and event to Spring. For this Today Nov 4th Find out where your voting location is here! Go Vote! (SK)
