Lock up your lemurs! It’s mischief night and over at the brand spankin’ new Nicholas Robinson Gallery in Chelsea is an exhibit that sort of screams “third date”—you know, the chick you’d like to go out with, but don’t want to risk taking to a sloppy Halloween party. There, you will find the Bone Stone Bronze exhibit, where you can see British sculptor Steven Gregory’s pieces made with human bones and skulls encrusted with stones. Creepy! But … with a British accent, kinda hot? Meanwhile, up at the big gilded Cipriani 42nd Street restaurant, the great Lauren Bacall, pretty dressmaker Oscar de la Renta and John Whitehead, chairman of the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation, will be among those honored by the New York Landmarks Conservancy. Liz Smith, who is still someone no one should tussle with, and clearly has a much more enriching social life than us, hosts. And we stay out of the way.
