'I'm Shmacked' Kicks Its Rape Threat-Making Cofounder to the Curb

Some of you may recall the tragic tale of the tantrum of Arya Toufanian, the college party mogul who mere months ago acted foolish to a degree that should embarrass other people his age. Well, apparently his douchebaggery was too much for a site that glorifies the sort of college partying that would be grimly called a… » 9/23/14 4:45pm Yesterday 4:45pm

Hipster Bar to Throw Old-Timey Asian Racism-Themed Party

This weekend, a hipstery bar in hipstery Brooklyn will throw a hipstery party called Madam Wu's Good Luck Banquet of the Senses. Based on the invitation, it will be like going to a party thrown by actual racists in 1950, but apparently someone thought it was okay because it's happening ironically in the year 2013.… » 11/19/13 5:00pm 11/19/13 5:00pm

Gwyneth Paltrow Made a Trailer for a Party She Threw

It's not really weird that Gwyneth Paltrow threw an "English garden party" in the Hamptons where a bunch of her super rich friends hung out and played with children and watched Blythe Danner do the "Gangnam Style" dance while a four-piece bluegrass band plays on. But it's kind of weird that Cameron Diaz got an invite. » 9/13/13 5:40pm 9/13/13 5:40pm

Foam Party Ends in Some Seriously Fucked Up Eye Issues

Wait. Foam parties are a thing? Outside of Ibiza in 1998? Well, they've apparently spread to Florida where the funky chemical bubble mixture has caused pink eye, abrasions of the cornea, and even worse. Yet again, my crippling nerd status has prevented me from attending something that would give me a disease. Dork… » 8/28/13 9:30am 8/28/13 9:30am

Why Not Celebrate Your 45th Birthday With a 45-Person Gang Bang?

On my 19th birthday, I spent several hours driving aimlessly around Albuquerque in a blue 1982 Dodge Ram listening to Jimmy Eat World on a Discman before I got lost in the South Valley and stopped to buy cigarettes, which I proceeded smoked so greedily that I threw up in a gravel parking lot. I was a virgin. The… » 8/06/13 4:10pm 8/06/13 4:10pm

Church of England Updating Itself with ‘Champagne Christenings’

Let’s face it — in the industrialized, Western world, religion is having a fairly rough go of it. Sure, there will always be some hardcore fundamentalist literalists who refuse to admit, say, that lions and gazelles wouldn’t pass a 40 day and night diluvian pleasure cruise playing bridge and calmly sipping highballs,… » 6/30/13 12:30pm 6/30/13 12:30pm

Heidi Klum Bedazzles Own Face and Sits on Santa's Lap For Halloween…

From Heidi Klum's Halloween party, which was held a month late because of Hurricane Sandy. It was also a benefit for the Red Cross, which is great, and honestly, I kinda love how insane it all is. My idea of throwing a party is buying Trader Joe's hummus trio, taking 1.5x dose of my cousin's social anxiety medication,… » 12/03/12 11:00pm 12/03/12 11:00pm

Missing Tips and Tricks From Pippa Middleton's Failing Party Planning…

Pippa Middleton's party planning book, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends is bombing. Sales are so incredibly slow, it's been reduced by fifty percent on Amazon, and the reviews have been, well, harsh. Simplistic tips such as "parties is as parties does HEE HAW" have earned critics complaints… » 11/16/12 6:30pm 11/16/12 6:30pm

The Best Part About Living to 107 Is the Fancy Birthday Party

Juliana Koo is about to be 107, which means that she was born when Russia's last emperor was mucking his way through a war with the Japanese and Theodore Roosevelt's mustache was the U.S. president. On Sunday, according to the New York Times, her family threw her a preemptive 107th birthday party at the Pierre Hotel… » 9/24/12 11:55pm 9/24/12 11:55pm

The Room Behind the Room: The Fancy Republican Donor Parties You Can't…

Here at the RNC, the breadth of extracurricular activities available to you depends largely on how many zeros are at the end of the check you write to the Republican Party. Sinful liberal media heathens like me have the option of RSVP'ing for media parties or wandering around and getting hissed at by possums as they… » 8/30/12 3:45pm 8/30/12 3:45pm

It's Getting Hot in Here: Live From the Jezebel Fifth Anniversary Party

In 2007, Gawker Media launched A Blog for Women. Around the home office, it was referred to as Girly Gawker. From the very start, however, Jezebel was much more than a feminized version of its sibling site. It was something wholly new, celebrating a new generation of women and heralding a new era in women's media.… » 6/21/12 8:45pm 6/21/12 8:45pm

Project X Parties Are the Newest Trend in Teenagers Being Awful

Have you heard of Project X? It's the new movie that, much like the boombox and Natty Ice, has taken the teen world by storm. Loosely inspired by Corey Delaney, the Australian teen who gained fame after throwing a house party that, through social media promotion, attracted over 500 attendees, Project X follows an… » 3/16/12 12:40pm 3/16/12 12:40pm

Tavi Gevinson Sang Neil Young Last Night

When I woke up this morning, I was pretty sure that I had dreamed the whole part of last night where I went to a remarkably friendly and not-too-crowded fashion party at the Standard hotel and drank vodka from a beaker that was served to me by a bartender in a white lab coat and danced to the Spice Girls and "Mmmbop"… » 2/13/12 6:10pm 2/13/12 6:10pm
