Carr Wash

Over at District Attorney Dolores Carr’s re-election party at the Britannia Arms on Almaden, it was nearly impossible to distinguish Carr backers from the juiced-up Celtics-Lakers game watchers.

Waiters jostled through the crowd with pitchers and canapés while Carr’s husband, John, checked polls on an iPad.

Despite the chaos, Carr was her usual cheery, composed self. “It was a good day. Relaxed. Went to the gym. Got my car washed,” she said, before being interrupted by screaming and clapping from the Lakers fans.

“We’re optimistic,” she continued. “It’s going to be a long night, but we think we’re going to end up ahead of the game.”
