    Something about the summertime makes us want to Party (yes, with a capital P). And, because it's only Tuesday, we thought it necessary to break out a little super-luxe fiesta eye-candy for your mid-week afternoon slump. So, we tapped the best-of-the-best in party planning, Tala Yasseri and Andrea Rajacic of The New York Issue, to give us the low-down on their always elegant, sometimes raucous fetes.
