Sunday, May 4th

New Yorkers can’t get enough of puffy, sozzled Brit brat Christopher Hitchens—the question is, why are the other 415,283 puffy, sozzled intellectuals in the U.K. letting Hitch have all the fun, instead of high-tailing it over here to join him in soaking up American booze, TV time and tipsy tarts? Mr. Hitchens pops up today at a New York Times’ event—terrifyingly titled “Sunday with the Magazine”—a brainy chatfest featuring Hitch, designer Donatella Versace, Project Runway’s Tim Gunn, comedian Tracey Ullman and Governor David Paterson.
