Party Central

On August 24, the Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee will throw 24 parties for the 54 official delegations to the Democratic National Convention. If you do the math, you’ll see that some delegations are doubling, even tripling up. In some cases, the delegations requested their partying partners. In others, the committee grouped delegations together because they were staying at nearby hotels.

As for Florida and Michigan, the disgraced delegations, there are no official festivities in their honor. But if those delegates want to meet us at Lola -- whose deck looks off on the Pepsi Center, where they will go unrecognized the next day when the convention starts -- we'll buy the margs! -- Patricia Calhoun
