After the jump we bring you what we're told is Aleksey Vayner's invitation to his birthday party. Spectacularly normal, really. He's no Lucy Gao. And don't worry if you are under age. Aleksey can still totally get you into the club.

Subject: Party Invitation for You / Press Release

Dear friends,

I would like to invite you to my party in NYC on August 19th, starting

at 8:30pm, at A nice bar/lounge located in Midtown

Manhattan. Enjoy the company of great people, live DJ,

all-you-can-eat-appetizers, large plasma tvs, dance, and great specials

on all booze!

Besides celebrating my birthday, I just published a book, Women's

Silent Tears and would love to use these as reasons to get together and

party with my friends! The book, available at

- is a gendered study on the Holocaust, through the eyes of survivors.

All proceeds from its sales go to fund Youth Empowerment Strategies

(, a non-profit organization for immigrant

children that my great team and I launched this summer as well (Another

great reason to party?!) Attached you'll find Publisher's Press

Release, should you find the topic or the cause of interest to someone

you know.

So I really hope you can come, and have a great time! Celebrate, dance,

eat plenty, and of course for some of us just get wasted!!!

(Under-age invitees need not worry, you're set)

1. Please reply to this email if you WILL or MIGHT come = having

semi-accurate headcount will significantly ease my life.

2. If you want/need a place to stay in the city, let me know and I?ll

take care of that on first-come, first-serve basis.

3. Under 21? = reply to this email so that your name is on a list =

getting in will not be a problem at all, guaranteed.

4. Party has no cover. You are welcome to cheap to help cover cost.

I hope to see you soon, and I hope that you are having a fantastic


Much Love,
