My pal (and unofficial event host) Don Hauptman tells me that a February 2, 2005 party (from 6:30-9:30 p.m.) has been scheduled in Gala Celebration of Ayn Rand's 100th Birthday. The venue is Porters, a stylish restaurant with great food in Manhattan's newly trendy Chelsea neighborhood. Porters is located at 216 Seventh Avenue (between 22nd and 23rd Streets).
Gourmet hors d'oeuvres will be served by uniformed strolling waiters. A selection of premium-quality red and white wines and a variety of soft drinks will be available. There will also be a birthday cake, served with coffee and tea. A souvenir brochure of little-known, unpublished fun facts about Rand and Objectivism will be provided exclusively to attendees.
Admission is $55 per person, including gratuities and tax. Laissez Faire Books is taking credit card reservations by phone at 1-800-326-0996 (or 501-975-3650), Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time, by email, or by check through snail mail (payable to Laissez Faire Books, 7123 Interstate 30, #42, Little Rock, AR 72209; write "Rand Centennial" in memo line, include your name and the names of your guests, and an email address for confirmation purposes).
