Dear Howell,

Ever wonder how to throw a cocktail party in an impossibly small apartment? A studio, even? I'm sure you have! (Who hasn't?) I'd like to offer you a 1,000 word article on how to throw a cocktail party in a Manhattan loft the size of the average NYT utility closet. (You pay for the cocktails, of course. And the DIY cocktail party book I'm going to shamelessly mock in the article. I will also need a copy of Missy Eliot's "Under Construction" CD.) Thank you for your consideration.
