Here are the places you can watch the first Democratic presidential debate in NYC

Don't want to watch the Democratic president debate alone Tuesday night? We've compiled some watch parties where you share your reaction with a crowd.

The debate starts at 9 p.m. and includes five of the candidates running on the Democratic ticket -- Bernie Sanders, Martin O'Malley, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chafee and Hillary Clinton in the middle.

Here are some of the events we found. We're sure there are a lot of other places showing the debate, too. If you know of any, post the info and/or link in the comment section below or tweet it to us @abc7NY.
