Editor and popular girl Cindi Leive takes her Condé Nast cash cow of a magazine, Glamour, to Chelsea cocktail bar Tillman’s, while the hipster brood at Nylon, less inclined toward “romantic holiday hair” and more inclined toward unitards from American Apparel, heads to Pamplona for rabbit and blood sausage. Burp! Meanwhile, high fashion’s holiday haunt would appear to be Socialista, which is owned by Bungalow 8’s former doorman, and ELLE is first up. But don’t worry, Cosmo: Hearst fetes its magazines en masse in its own third-floor cafeteria with a DJ and a 6-foot tall cupcake tree! And in far less fashionable news, Mayor Michael Bloomberg hosts a reception for the New York City Press Corps at Gracie Mansion, where he’ll surely delight in fanning speculation about a presidential run. In theater news, Anthony Rapp, who is best known as Mark in Rent and apparently likes it that way, stages an early version of his musical memoir, titled, yep: Without You: An Evening of Love, Loss and the Musical Rent. “There are fragments of Rent songs, pieces of Rent songs,” he told us. “But probably only one or two Rent songs in their entirety. And one REM song, Losing my Religion, which I sang for my audition.” Back then, he said, “All I knew was that I needed a job. I was working at Starbucks. I had no way of knowing Rent would transform my life utterly.” Mr. Rapp said it’s not the teenage masses who recognize him these days: “I play a lot of poker, and that’s where I tend to get recognized,” he said. “At public tables. They’re like, ‘You’re an actor, right?’ They don’t know from what. And also at airports.”
