Calvert Party Encyclopedia
Your Complete Guide to Home Entertaining
As a librarian, I love an encyclopedia regardless of what it might cover. Parties and booze? Sign me up! Our little example here isn’t quite what I had in mind for a comprehensive look, but it’s not too bad for the average cocktail party circa 1968. My parents lived like this up and into the 1970s. Every Friday or Saturday night, someone was hosting some kind of cocktail party.
Cocktails seem to be making a comeback, so maybe there is a need for those wanting to do some retro entertaining like the Rat Pack. However, even if that is true, take a look at the liquor budgets presented. I doubt if the 25 dollar budget will work in 2018.
