The owner of Liberace's mansion, with the new nonprofit Nevada Preservation Foundation, unveiled plans for the restoration of the nearly 15,000-square-foot edifice Monday night.

Entrepreneur Martyn J. Ravenhill, who purchased the house for $500,000 in August, used the occasion to introduce a new book, the Social Stockmarket, which looks at what works, and doesn't work, with friendships. 

Among those attending: Social definer Melissa Petersen, Las Vegas Sun correspondent John Katsilometes, Zappos' chronicler of culture and chairman of the Liberace Foundation Brian Paco Alvarez, CityLife columnist Sarah Jane Woodall, CityLife editor Arnold Knightly, mid-century real estate expert Jack Levine, Liberace's ghost, Seven editor Heidi Kyser, and many others.
