PARTY LIKE A PRESIDENT by Brian Abrams and John Mathias

Brian Adams and John Mathiasspoke about their book, Party Like a President, at Busboys and Poets Brookland on Tuesday, March 24, 2015.

Parties are part of history, too, and Abrams, journalist for Mental Floss and High Times, as well as author of And Now…an Oral History of “Late Night with David Letterman” 1982-1993, has teamed up with Mathias, an artist, illustrator, and graphic designer who has contributed to The Lowbrow Reader and publications including The Washington Post and Tablet, for a colorful look at how our Chief Executives have kicked back. Washington liked his Madeira, Grant liked liquor in general. The author has done his homework and reports on “vitamin” shots and pills; the artist has dreamt up vivid caricatures and cartoons to dramatize events he couldn’t attend. The two have also gathered forty-four cocktail recipes—try these at home. They are in conversation with Alexandra Petri, columnist for the Washington Post.
