Thompson, Carrion and a Scheduling Conflict

In a weirdly early head-to-head test of political attractiveness, two of the possible 2009 Democratic mayoral candidates, Bill Thompson and Adolfo Carrion, are both having fund-raisers this Thursday evening in the city.

Thompson's "Spring Event" is taking place at the New York Hilton on the evening of May 17 and is $1,000 a ticket. 

I don't have money details yet on the Carrion event, which is taking place at almost precisely the same time, I'm told. (Email me, please!)
