Partying at a Summer Poolside Party with Young Hollywood
One of the most fun ways to attract beautiful girls into your life is to throw a party. Throughout my youth, I have thrown several parties. In high school, I rented out a large Manhattan nightclub called Club Apple after my high school prom for a large after-hours party. From there, I went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and threw very grand parties.
I started off by having my dorm friends and I buy a bunch of alcohol and then throwing a party in my dorm room, where there was a keg of beer in my shower and a mini-fridge full of alcohol. It escalated to me renting a 55 foot motor yacht and having an all you can drink booze cruise. Then, it escalated to me renting a 3 story supper club and transforming it into a fully catered event with a separate DJ in the first 2 floors and 3rd floor with free drinks and finger foods.
I started throwing regular parties throughout my college career and it allowed me to meet lots of girls. In order to fill my parties, I’d approach hot sororities and invite their girls to come to my events. I’d also drop a private newsletter in each of the cubbies of girls in my dorms to invite them to my parties. And I reached out to the press and my parties were discussed in newspapers and magazines.
Soon, I got the attention of Playboy Magazine, who recruited me to start throwing parties for them as a representative for Playboy Magazine’s College Division based out of New York. I’d receive regular promotional material packages of Playboy that they’d want me to promote via various parties.
However, when I graduated, instead of renting out venues and spending a lot of my own money to do so, I joined Xenii and they organized the parties, renting out large movie studio stages and mansions. As a member, I had fun attending the events, but I also promoted the parties via text message. My blackberry can send out 2000 text messages with the push of a button.
I’ve also masterd the ability of throwing a party. In fact, on a NY bootcamp in January, I threw a party at Pop Burger, where I invited VIP promoters, girls, and event got people to buy bottle service, and the entire event was organized in 30 minutes of text messages. The contacts, I built up in the previous week via cold approaches and networking in a social circle that I built in 1 week.
That goes to show you how easy it is to throw a party and get people involved in your events. This is a great way to keep girls going out with you to your events on a regular basis. If you don’t want to throw the party yourself, you can promote the nights when you go out to hot nightclubs and call it “hosting a party” since you are the one who is organizing everything.
As a result, I have several girls in Young Hollywood, whose social calendars revolve around events that I throw. My friends and I often get invited to other parties and hot nightclubs because we invite a lot of girls to the events that we go to. In fact, myself and others will even get paid to promote these parties and go to them with our girls.
I’ve been offered equity in exclusive private membership social clubs because of my knowledge and relationships in LA nightlife. I’ve offered served on the Members Board of Xenii, which was a young Hollywood social club for young socialites, models and celebrities who paid between $650-$25,000/month to party in all-night Friday movie studio parties, all-day mansion swimsuit summer parties, and elite vacations with special event access to exotic locations like Park City for Sundance Film Festival or Rio De Janeiro for Carnival.
Inviting Friends Out to Party in Hollywood
Parties can help you develop a lifestyle and it doesn’t require a lot of money or a lot of resources. All it requires is a bit of time to network. Most of the contacts I’ve made to establish my rolodex were from cold approaches. I didn’t start off with a list of hot girls, cool dudes, industry connections, and models, but I did have a drive to build my contact list and to have a lot of fun doing it.
Instead of using my skills to pickup girls solely to get phone numbers of girls that I’d want to date or hookup with, I also used my skills of walking up to random strangers to develop a social network of male and female friends that would help me build a fun and cool social circle. When I got the phone numbers of girls, I’d invite all of them to weekly parties (and sometimes more frequently). Instead of spending a month organizing a sophisticated gala, I’d organize a small wine tasting or dinner party with an exclusive, tight group of friends.
Although I’d develop a lot of broad relationships with everyone, I also kept close relationships with a tight, small circle of friends, and we’d throw parties together. Sometimes, we’d combine forces to rent out large houses for parties, or get alcohol sponsors to provide us with booze, but we each threw our own parties. Once you get the hang of throwing parties, it is a very fun, rewarding experience, and it is an easy skill to master.
When I organize a dinner party, all it takes is to send out a text message and invite a bunch of girls and guys to the restaurant for dinner. Likewise, if I want to do a wine tasting, I’d simply text message my friends to show-up at a wine tasting lounge. Sometimes, I’d throw a party at my house and invite everyone back to my place for an after-hours party for when the nightclubs closed, but this wasn’t absolutely necessary.
Other times, I’d throw parties at my friends’ houses or wait for my friends to throw parties at their houses. I have a lot of friends who have very cool homes or know of great locations to throw parties. And when my friends host a wine-tasting or private dinner at their house, I can get credit for inviting hot girls and cool company to the party.

There are several things to consider when you are throwing a party so I’m going to make a short list of what these are here (it is not totally comprehensive, but it should give you a simple checklist to help you throw your own party):
1) VENUE – Where are you doing to throw the event? Is this venue unique, hot, or have a special appeal to your party-goers? Will you be able to host a party for free or will they charge you for bringing your people to the venue?
2) GIRLS – Do you know a lot of hot girls that you can invite to the party or will you have to do cold approaches to build up your rolodex? Will your friends invite hot girls to the party? What will you do to make sure that the girls at your party are of a high caliber?
3) DRINKS – Will an alcohol company sponsor your event or will you have to charge money for booze? What are the laws governing the sale of alcohol in your city at a party? Do you have enough drinks for the people attending your event for the duration of the event?
4) MUSIC – Are you going to DJ your own party or hire a DJ? Do you have a good sound system to use or will you need to oursource your sound system? Does the venue you are using already have the music setup for you?
5) FOOD – Will you cater the event with a meal or finger foods? Do you have light foods or a dinner meal? What staff will you need to cater your event? Will guests help you with food or do you know of local restaurants that can sponsor your party? How about a chef for a dinner party?
6) AMBIANCE – Is this party a classy and upscale event with a sophisticated theme, furniture, and décor, or is this going to be a more laid-back and down to early party-scene? Will the music, fashion, and venue match the ambiance that you want to exude for your party?
7) FASHION – Is this going to be a down-to-earth casual or semi-formal function or will party-goers be required to dress to the nines or wear a funky costume? How are you going to let your audience know what to wear?
8) LIGHTS – Will you host a sophisticated lights show or have the audio/visual company that you need to project lasers or video images? Are you going to need a technician to have lights on the dance floor?
9) DANCING – Will there be a hip hop dancefloor or a more classic feel to the dancefloor? Are people going to be dancing throughout the night or will there be no dancefloor at all? Do you need a portable dancefloor or does the venue already have one in place?
10) POKER – Do you offer Texas Hold’em poker, have a table, and hire a professional dealer to run the cards, in which case your guest play for real money? Will there be “play money” competition on different gambling games? Is there going to be cash or other prizes for a tournament?
11) BARTENDERS – Who is bartending your event? Are the bartenders educated on mixology and complex drinks or are they only trained on making simple mixed drinks? Do your bartenders work for an alcohol sponsor or are they simply working for the venue hosts?
12) PROMOTERS – Who is promoting your party? What kind of people are on the list of the promoters that you invited to promote for you? Do you offer a commission for selling tickets, memberships, or VIP bottle service?
13) VIP – Do you charge a premium for a roped-off VIP area for private clients? Are you going to have VIP Hosts manage special guests with drinks and food? Will you offer VIP security for premium party guests? Will celebrities be in a roped off area?
14) GO-GO – Do you want go-go dancers or a cirque de soleil show available at your party near the dance floor or for entertainment? At what hour(s) of the night will your entertainers be performing at your party?
15) SECURITY – Do you have good security protecting the door of your party and also inside of the venue to prevent drunken fights? Are you using off-duty cops to protect you from noise violations in a private neighborhood with easily disturbed neighbors or a random door guy?
In addition to the above questions, as a party host, it your job to make sure your guests are having fun, and this can be as much work as running a business enterprise. This is why it is often easier and more fun to promote your own party, but let someone else host the party and create the entire production.
I’ve done both, and I have a lot of fun doing both, but I definitely have a lot more fun when I am just promoting the party, because when you organize the production, you have to manage the party and make sure everyone is having fun. However, if you do produce the entire event, you will get more credit for the party and a lot of hookups, favors, and connections.
