Bettina Zilkha’s beach clambake was rained out, last night. But boy, did she have a great plan B. Huge white room filled with long white tables on Elm Street. HUGE success. Ran into Brooke Shields, who is now a local out there. Yeah. Ivana Lowell (LOVED HER BOOK!), Christopher Mason had my wife and I in stitches with stories of singing at 3 day Hamish B-day in Bath, Jay McInerney and Anne Hearst (his writers team won in baseball this weekend), Kathy and Rick Hilton, Somers, Dennis Basso, Oh, and we sat next to Steven Gambrell who had crazytown stories about touring great houses in Ireland and being wined and dined by oligarch in Switzerland. Rudy Giuliani–it was more like, who didn’t you see!. Triumph for Bettina on a rainy night!
