Oil primer fumes

I had just primed a walk in closet with an oil base primer when my friend calls and asks to have our little get -together tomorrow night at our house. Now I need to get this smell out ASAP. Any ideas? Will it help to paint over it tomorrow - was planning to use a latex paint, will that kill the smell? Help!!

Fresh air circulation is the best method for removing paint fumes. Covering the primer with latex might help a little but I wouldn't rely on that to remove the odor.
