A 1980s pop star, a former governor, a senate hopeful and an actress walk into a gay bar -- to encourage people to vote on Election Day.

Cyndi Lauper and former Will and Grace star Debra Messing are heading to a bar crawl in Philadelphia's Gayborhood on Friday. They're joining former Gov. Ed Rendell and Democratic Senate hopeful Katie McGinty to hit some hotspots and urge folks to vote Tuesday.

According to a Facebook post, the get-out-the-vote tour is being organized by the Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club.

The festivities get underway at 9 p.m., with the four hitting six bars and changing locales every 30 minutes.

Campaigning in gay bars the weekend before an election is a bit of a tradition in the city, started by Rendell during his successful 1977 Philadelphia district attorney campaign.
