Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic candidate Rep. Beto O'Rourke are set to debate tonight, three weeks ahead of the midterm election.

In their second debate, the candidates will discuss domestic and international issues at 8 p.m. inside the KENS5 studios. While the debate isn't open to the public, San Antonians have a few viewing options.

The hour-long debate will be aired live on KENS5 and can be streamed on as well as the station's Facebook page and YouTube channel. If you have a preference for Twitter, you can also watch a broadcast of the debate on that platform through Periscope.

Each candidate's campaigns will be hosting a watch party, but other organizations and venues have their own offerings.

O'Rourke's people
will take over Palo Alto College's Performing Arts Center at 1400 W. Villaret from 7:30-9:30 p.m. There is no charge, but you do need to RSVP. You can check out a map of other Beto-friendly watch parties here.

Cruz supporters can show up at Old San Francisco Steak House at 10223 Sahara Drive from 7-10 p.m. You'll also need to register for this free event. You can find other Cruz watch parties here.

And if you want to have a little fun, play our drinking game during the debate.
