Wake up, Party Time! It's your birthday!

Hello party people! We interrupt our annual August nap for a birthday celebration. That’s right, folks: good old Party Time turns 6 today! We threw – what else? – a party last year to mark five years of keeping our finger on the political party pulse, collecting invites for all of those receptions, pheasant hunts and get-togethers at Johnny’s Half Shell. Last year, we counted a total of 17,807 events in the Party Time database, but our latest check on the numbers shows we’ve now logged 19,631 invites. Whew! And that embarrassment of riches is thanks largely to you, dear ...

PT Round-up: Obamas! Biden!! Bourbon!!! Deadheads!!!! But where, oh where are the Republicans?

Hello party people! We’ve got another busy week of political parties on the books over here at Party Time. But, as has been the case during the past few weeks, our social calendar skews heavily blue, with Democrats from all over getting in on the fundraising game. Since we know the GOP does just as much fundraising as its counterpart, our only question is: What are the details?! Send us anything and everything – news clippings, hot gossip, attendee lists, luncheon menus, etc. – right here, or share those invites with our confidential upload feature. Don’t be shy!

PT Round-up: Barack and Michelle Obama headline fundraisers for Democrats, Chris Christie goes three-for-three in Iowa, and Nancy Pelosi has a PAC to the Future party

Hey, party people, hey! Over here at Party Time, we know that political fundraising is a bipartisan mistress, her siren song calling to Democrats and Republicans alike. But it seems like the last few weeks have been extra busy for Dem donors. Last week, the partier-in-chief hit up deep-pocketed supporters in a 24-hour cash-collecting bonanza, cruising through Denver, Dallas, and doing two stops in Austin. (In fact, the trip was so notable that we went on MSNBC to talk about it.) But President Obama wasn’t the only White House denizen getting in on the action. First lady Michelle Obama headlined ...
