    Throw some beer in a pail, cover with ice, unlock your door, and you're halfway to a fantastic little house party, right? Mmm, well, err — notsomuch. Indeed, beer has been the backbone of many a decent hang. But the finer points of guest and playlist curation or food and apartment prep are just as essential and rarely, if ever, taught in school. In fact, our partner Bud Light Platinum was so curious, that they offered up some of its smooth, top-shelf beverages to help in our...um...investigations.

    So, we thought to ourselves, who amongst our circle of peeps is the most socially deft, the most genial and charming host, the most likely to throw a kickin' thing over at their apartment? We thought, and thought, and thought — and then slapped ourselves for thinking so long. Obviously, Elliot Aronow, the host of the brilliant OUR SHOW video series, editor, and publisher of the equally brilliant OUR SHOW magazine, RCRD LBL co-founder, style and relationship advisor, swag coach, and debonair bon vivant, raconteur extraordinaire par excellence, was just the fellow to ask for tips on how to carry off a quick, easy, bash. So, being good guests, we brought over some triple-filtered Bud Light Platinum to his cozy Williamsburg perch, and, well, you can just click through to see the rest. Have fun, folks.
