Other Details: Different this year than in years past, the Cocktails At Sunset Benefit for ACRIA was hosted at Ross Bleckner's residence to raise funds for the AIDS organization. Rather than just a cocktail hour and an art auction, this years event featured a cocktail, with drinks by Belvedere Vodka, hour in addition to an intimate dinner for 75 in Bleckner's studio. The dinner was a tasteful affair, featuring space age centerpieces, and a meal of grilled nectarine, edamame and mizuna salad, a basil reduction and lemon-zest risotto and baby lamb chops with multicolor heirloom carrots.
