We've already praised the smart, detailed writing of the Bold Italic, Gannett's new Web magazine, which aims to show SF from new perspectives through lengthy travelogues and hands-on experiences. But it turns out that the Bold Italites are as good at partying as they are at writing: they're throwing their first shindig tonight, a Great Depression-inspired look back at the recession glamour of 1939. A very reasonable $30 gets you two hours of access to cocktails from Distillery No. 209 and St. George Spirits, food from Aidell's, Cheese Plus, and Pacific Puffs, and "paparazzi" snapping your every move. Got some vintage duds on hand? The lady and gent with the best period costumes will win gift certificates to Decades of Fashion. We hope that this is the first of many inspired parties to come.

The Bold Italic's "Tog to the Bricks Like It's 1939" party is tonight, Wednesday, November 18, 8-10 pm, at Le Club, 1250 Jones St., Polk Gulch.
