The Kingdom of Robots is at Hand

Entertainment Weekly "Must List" party. Gotham Hall, 1356 Broadway, nr. 36th St., 7:30 p.m. Among the Musts scheduled to attend: Lily Allen, Ron Livingston, Kal Penn, Aasif Mandvi, Nate Robinson, and more. We try to keep things positive around here at Party Town, but let's face the facts: "Must List" is a terrible name. It doesn't make sense, it's hard to pronounce, and it suggests that there are certain things that people "must" be doing besides preparing for the coming war against the robots, which is just not good planning.

Ripley's Times Square Odditorium opening. 234 W. 42nd St., nr. Seventh Ave., 6 p.m. Expected guests: Carmen Electra, Jenny McCarthy, Lizardman, and Wolfboy. That's not a joke; Wolfboy will be there. He's in town anyway — he's the finance chairman of Barack Obama's campaign, which holds a fund-raiser at the Hammerstein Ballroom tomorrow — so why not?
