Handbook for Hosts

by

Take an entertaining look back at how to party it up like they did fifty years ago - in the age of 'Lounge.' Now re-introduced for the first time since its original publication in 1949, this book is full of classic advice and guidelines on how to throw a fabulous cocktail party. Complete with everything from directions on how to stock the bar to tips on making conversation to hilarious party games and 400 delightful and useful period illustrations, Esquire's Handbook for Hosts is a delightful reminder that even the most hopeless host can give a terrific party, whether it's New Year's Eve 1949 or 1999. The nostalgic chapters include: Eat - The World's Best Chefs Wear Pants, Foreign Flavors to Win Guest's Favors; Drink - What the Well-Dressed bar Will Wear, Five O'Clock Whistle Whetters; And Be Merry - Games, After-Dinner Witchcraft, How Attractive Are You to Women? and 365 excuses for a Party.
