Two point five. That’s the numbers of hours I slept Tuesday night and just about the percentage of convention events in Party Time I attended since August 27.
The political conventions are a whirlwind for all participants: delegates, speakers, journalists … two Sunlighters. As Party Time shows, there are events happening morning, noon and night. As the Democratic National Convention prepares for its final day, I wondered when prime time for parties really was.
Looking at both the Republican National Convention in Tampa last week and the Democratic convention this week in Charlotte, the best time to attend an event is in the 10 o’clock hour. Breakfast was on the menu at these mid-morning events for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the American Association for Justice and nearly 100 others. The least popular time was 7:00 a.m. (Speaking from experience, early start times here are not so fun.)
