(Newser) – Journalists plowing through the 24,000 pages of emails from Sarah Palin's governorship released last week have found them rather underwhelming, but one eye-catcher invites her to a 2008 party at a record exec's house and asks her to "bring beef, tequila, and condoms." Echo Park Records chief Alexis Rivera tells Gawker that he used the then-vice-presidential candidate's address as a dummy in the "to" line of the mass invite. "I had no idea it was her real address," he says.

The party, in honor of Los Angeles party promoter Preston Olson "surpassing 10,000 friends on MySpace," was headlined by Austin rockers The Strange Boys. "We didn’t know she was invited, but we’re not surprised," the band tells the AV Club. "Preston knows everybody." Palin was a no-show at the party, but she forwarded the invite to her scheduler a few days after receiving it, the Telegraph notes. Click for more on the Palin emails.
