Last night's election was, as it has been and will be oft repeated, historic.

LAist Featured Photos pool contributor suckafuck captured this image from the floor of the ballroom of the Hyatt Century Plaza at the Obama Victory Party. There were many, many, many Election Night events going on around Los Angeles last night, some focused on specific candidates or ballot initiatives, some just focused on celebrating the democratic process. The Obama event at the Century Plaza was one of the biggest--in fact, the LAFD issued an "overcrowding" warning last night, although nothing or no one ever got out of hand. Hopefully some of you made your way to The Causecast/LAist party at the Edison (although we know lots of you were at home with your remote control and your Twitter account handy!).
