Halloween parties are a special breed of social gathering. Everyone’s wearing costumes, which makes the whole thing much more exciting (and confusing), plus there’s usually copious amounts of spiked punch to be consumed, “Monster Mash” dancing to do, and cheesy pickup lines to be attempted. Overall, it’s one of the most unpredictable nights of the year. One thing you can always count on, though, is that you’ll meet these nine people on the Halloween party circuit… Keep reading »
I love movies. I love hot tubs. I love champagne. I love rooftop parties. I love London. Hot Tub Cinema just happens to be a combination of all of those things, so obviously I want to get in on the action. For the past year, Hot Tub Cinema has been putting on rooftop hot tub parties where guests can sip bubbly, flirt with moviegoers in neighboring hot tubs, watch the sun set over the London skyline, and enjoy quality films such as “Anchorman.” I can think of worse ways to spend a September evening.

I spend most of my life thinking about food, but as soon as I get an invite to a party that includes the phrase, “Please bring a dish to share,” my mind goes completely blank. For someone who loves to cook, I’ve showed up at way too many parties sheepishly holding a store-bought cold cuts platter. But you know what? I think it’s finally time to tackle the party food challenge. I sought out 10 crowd-pleasing treats that are easy to make, easy to eat, delicious, and–in certain cases–downright adorable (grilled cheese bites, anyone?). Click through to check ‘em out, but beware: these recipes could cause your social calendar to fill up very quickly…
Astrology can help us see our good qualities and face our not-so-good ones, but it can also give us clues about how we interact with other people and deal with certain situations. At a social event, for example, which sign is likely to be chilling out with old friends? Which sign is making the rounds and topping off drinks? And which sign dragged out the karaoke machine and is serenading other guests with “Total Eclipse of the Heart”? (Sounds like a sweet party, huh?) Click through to find out… Keep reading »
Not that I saw that terrible looking movie “New Year’s Eve” — I’m waiting for it to be on DVD, obvs — but there was a line from the trailer that I found to be quite on point. “New Year’s is the worst holiday to go out on,” says Ashton Kutcher’s sure-to-be-douche-y character. “People who don’t drink, don’t party all year, suddenly going all Kanye on you.” And it’s true. At least the (fake) New Year’s Party invite above is honest about what you can expect from your average overhyped, big-budget, overcrowded New Year’s shindig. [Buzzfeed]
I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised when Maxim does something totally looks-ist and gross. Apparently, the magazine sent out a pretty horrifying invite to their Hot 100 party that is going down in Los Angeles next week. The party is to celebrate the 100 women who they’ve dubbed the hottest in the world—#1 this year is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—but they apparently want to make sure that the room doesn’t have any fugly ladies in it. According to The New York Post, their invitation read, “The invite is for beautiful female guests only, 21 or older. E-mail RSVP with a recent photo. Confirmation required.” The audacity of inviting someone to a shindig and then setting them up to be judged on their appearance … well … it makes me pretty mad. A Maxim rep says that this wasn’t an official invite, and was sent out by an outside promoter, and we’ll hope that’s the case. But if it’s true, I can’t wait for the day when men have to submit photos and have their looks judged just to be put on the list for a lame party. Maybe there should be an IQ test, too.

“Skinny dipping. It would be a dress-up-like-Ke$ha-or-Britney party. I have a small, salt-water pool that has laser beams in it and a stereo so you can be under water listening to music. It’s really magical. I hope people are ready to come and take their clothes off.”
—Ke$ha describes her dream party to celebrate the release of Britney Spears‘ Femme Fatale, which contains several tunes Ke$ha penned like “Till the World Ends.” Hey, if people sleep over they can always brush their teeth with Jack Daniels in the morning. [People] Keep reading »
Have a great time partying it up this New Year’s Eve. You won’t see me there.
Instead of getting wildly drunk and making out with a random stranger, I’m going to do what I’ve done for the last four years: I’m skipping New Year’s.
There will be no wild parties with fireworks inside (yes, something that actually happened at one of my New Year’s Eve parties several years ago, and no, it wasn’t a good idea), I’ve taken to sharing the holiday ensconced in the woods with one of my close friends. Keep reading »
