Tuesday, March 11th

calendar tiki1v Tuesday, March 11thWhere are our mushrooms? The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center gears up for gala season with the too-sweet-by-half Bunny Hop, an event for the pint-size socialites of tomorrow. Unsurprisingly, this shindig is sponsored by Lilly Pulitzer, maker of luridly colored Palm Beach finery, and there will be plenty of Upper East Side ladies in headbands. For those not beholden to an 8 p.m. bedtime, may we present the Winter Dance at the American Museum of Natural History, themed “Enchanted Forest”—which means, though it is sponsored by expensive-trashy designer Roberto Cavalli, the upcoming line of Prada, with its fairies and elves, will be out in full force. Co-chairs include the entire socialite A-team: the aforementioned Ms. Hearst, Fabiola Beracasa, Claire Bernard, Tinsley Mortimer, Arden Wohl and … Leelee Sobieski? (Really, Leelee? Weren’t you gonna be the next Reese Witherspoon at one point?) For flashbulb folks who prefer men in uniform to men in museums, it’s the 30th Annual New York City Police Foundation Gala at the Waldorf, featuring honoree Tiki Barber (a short, stocky football player—we think) and co-chairs such as Tina Brown, Robert De Niro, Beth Rudin DeWoody and Jeff Zucker. Watch for frisky cougars to try out the line, “May I see your badge–or do you want to skip that and just arrest me right now?”

People take part in a protest outside the New York Times on February 26, 2017 in New York. The White House denied access Frebuary 24. 2017 to an off-camera briefing to several major US media outlets, including CNN and The New York Times. Smaller outlets that have provided favorable coverage however were allowed to attend the briefing by spokesman Sean Spicer. The WHCA said it was "protesting strongly" against the decision to selectively deny media access. The New York Times said the decision was "an unmistakable insult to democratic ideals," CNN called it "an unacceptable development," and The Los Angeles Times warned the incident had "ratcheted up the White House's war on the free press" to a new level. / AFP / KENA BETANCUR (Photo credit should read KENA BETANCUR/AFP/Getty Images)
