Who doesn’t love a good party? Good music, good food, perhaps a drink or two (or three or four); there’s a lot of fun to be had in that most raucous of social gatherings. We humans have made partying something of an art form with a bevy of festivals, celebrations, and rites of passage to give ourselves plenty of excuses to let our hair down and perhaps indulge in our wilder impulses, if only for a night or two. Whether we’re talking the well-documented escapades of Spring Break or the storied excesses of Mardi Gras and everything in between, there’s something to be said for a good blow out. That being the case, and us being the bookworms we are, we thought it’d be fun to take a look at a few literary favorites tailor-made for a night on the town.
