Transom Week In Review: Mary-Kate Olsen at the Accompanied Literary Society; Election Night Madness; Dominick Dunne Toasted

We channeled the spirit of Edgar Allen Poe alongside Josh Lucas, David Schwimmer, Arden Wohl, and Mary-Kate Olsen at the Accompanied Literary Society Halloween party.

The art world remembered Robert Rauschenberg at a Coalition for the Homeless benefit. 

We spent an anxious Election Eve with Graydon Carter, Tina Brown, Salman Rushdie, Regis Philbin, and Nora Ephron at the New York Public Library’s Library Lions benefit. 

On November 4th, we saw many people and did many things. Some highlights: chatting with Project Runway‘s Austin Scarlett at his polling place, drinking with bloggers in Cobble Hill, spying on Susan Sarandon backstage at Comedy Central, avoiding death by Kool-Aid with Overlook Press, discussing potential First Lady fashions with Angel Sanchez, and comforting Republican Georgette Mosbacher at the Harvey Weinstein/GQ party. 

Tina Brown, Harry Evans, Ian McEwan, and Joan Didion thought about the future while toasting the Dominick Dunne documentary After the Party.

After polling Sarah Silverman, Martha Stewart, and Anne Slowey, we concluded no one above high school age wears Juicy sweatpants (with the exception of Vogue darling Julia Macklowe).
