If you are throwing a Mad Men viewing party for the Most Important Night of our Eyes and Soul, you should be asking yourself one question:

Well, fortunately, the lovely ladies at the Emily Post institute have planned out a whole party for you. Including your manners:
First of all, a hostess must show each of her guests equal and impartial attention. Engrossed in the person she is talking to, she must be able to notice anything amiss that may occur.

If the show depicts the chaotic transition from the Eisenhower era to the counter culture revolution of the 1960’s, what transitional moment are we in? Where is Paul Kinsey?!
