Comedians got together to tell profanity-laced jokes about Donald Trump's hair, (another) Jane Eyre movie premiered, Regina Spektor played MoMa, someone had a hilariously horrible time at a fancy gala and much more! Last night was full of curse words and cocktails!

Other Details: This was not the boardroom. Trump got jabbed and prodded and no one was afraid of him. There was predictable amount of use of the words "whore," "cunt" and "vagina." Not surprisingly, sitting target and roaster The Situation, took a lot of flack. I met him! He's short in real life ladies and kinda puffy (coke bloat?). The show will air on March 15. At the after party dirty language continued to fly and Trump looked like he survived. He didn't have anyone fired! [Via]

New York School of Interior Design Benefit Cocktail and Dinner Honoring Mario Buatta at Avenue Antiques and Art at the Armory
Other Details: The AVENUE Antiques & Art at the Armory Show opened last night with a fancy invitation-only cocktail preview. The show features over 50 dealers specializing in high quality art and antiques. Cocktails were held at the Armory followed by a gala dinner at the Metropolitan Club. Sounds all fancy and nice right? Curbed got its hands on a scathing post-event email "that a certain dapper interior designer sent to a large number of attendees by mistakenly hitting "reply-all."
Just a sample: wouldn't use the word "awe". I was at a 60" diameter table with 10 people for over 2 hours. It got a little raw smelling if you know what I mean. And not in a good way. Not some hot man on man video, but more like the laundry bin at the Biggest Loser.
By dessert the women across from me, who was thin, was bumped so many times by the person next to her, she was covered with chocolate sauce, very Salvador Dali. I thought someone put acid in my fillet and I was hallucinating. I haven't felt like that since my baby sitter had me lick a smiley face during the Johnson administration. [Read the rest on Curbed]
