THE COUP….Attention readers in Washington DC. We’re throwing a party Tuesday evening for friend-of-the-magazine (and Playboy managing editor) Jamie Malanowski, who has just published The Coup, a sly Washington satire about a vice-president who gets bored and decides to connive his way into the top spot. Here are the details:

When: Tuesday, July 24, at 6:30 pm
Where: Borders Books, 600 14th Street NW
What: Cocktails and a reading from The Coup
