Democratic Convention Wisdom: Party Lists

Drudge may have the quality party list for the DNC (finally something worth a siren icon), but we have quantity. After the jump is an even longer list than posted previously of all the various Olympic-level boozing and schmoozing events surrounding the Democratic convention. We would have posted the information even earlier, but whoever pulled it together was serious enough about their drinking to put the entire thing into an Excel spreadsheet. This is a level of organization we admire, but that we refuse to try to figure how to convert to HTML. We have no picks, precisely, though we are dying, dying to go to the "Association of Nurses Late Night at The Big Easy." Could that possibly be as fun as it sounds? Cindy Adams also handicapped the festivities in today's NY Post -- though she appears to be working from a very different list than the one Drudge got (no mention of the Ben Affleck bowling party!). We were recently chided by a representative of the World Wrestling Entertainment organization for not taking this event seriously, but, well, even the Washington "Could you make this more boring, please?" Monthly has put together a guide. (Nothing will compare to their notorious ship-night orgies, though.)

Ironically, the spoilsports at the Center for the Public Integrity probably have the most complete guide (though there's no information on invite-level and whatnot); of course, they would like to remind us that all this free liquor has a price. . . democracy. Oops! Anyway: We have yet to find a completely comprehensive list, which means you either have to do more research or, uhm, not care so much. You know what helps with that? Drinking. Do it enough and you'll stop caring about democracy, too! Then again, look at Kennedy. . .

Disclaimer (looking at you, Newsweek!): No guarantee the information here is correct, or that these parties are open to the public or even to all convention goers. Unless your name begins with Chris and ends with Heinz, you might call ahead.
