Last Night's Parties: Silver Hill Hospital Gala, Today's Special Premiere, ASPCA Awards

by Chiara Atik · November 12, 2010

After the shenanigans of Wednesday night, Thursday night in NYC was a much more sober affair...literally. (The Silver Hill Gala raised money to help treat substance abuse.) There were still a few parties worth noting, however! The Yankees came out to play, and Aasif Mandvi premiered his new movie, "Today's Special."-



Silver Hill Hospital Gala

Where: Cipriani 42nd Street

Who Was There: Joan Collins, Ann Curry, Natalie Cole, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Deborah Roberts, Derek Blasberg, Fern Mallis, Hoda Kotb, Meredith Melling Burke, Peter Davis, Tory Burch

Other Details: Joan Collins was there, looking about 40 years old. Silver Hill treats substance abuse, which is why we particularly enjoyed Peter Davis's tweet calling it "Silver Pill". Ha!




Joe Torre's Safe At Home Foundation Gala

Where: Pier Sixty

Who Was There: Derek Jeter, Joe Torre, Mariska Hargitay, Hideki Matsui, Mariano Rivera.

Other Details: Apparently Derek Jeter was looking "sullen" all evening, possibly due to the fact that his contract negotiations are a bit up in the air. [via]

"Today's Special" Premiere

Where: Sunshine Landmark

Who Was There: Aasif Mandvi, Christian Campbell, Christine Baranski, Dreama Walker, Duncan Sheik, Jess Wexler, Reshma Shetty

Other Details: Oh man, this movie about a world class chef who takes over his parent's Indian Restaurant in Queens looks so so good. As one reviewer put it, "it's basically inception, but with curry." The after party, naturally, had amazing Indian food. [via Twitter]






2010 ASPCA Humane Awards

Where: The Pierre Hotel

Who Was There: Beth Stern, Chuck Scarborough, Yaz Hernandez, Isaac Mizrahi, Rosanna Scotto

Other Details: No guests garnered as much attention as Pearl and the other puppies who generously lent their time to represent the canine population at the gala. Pearl was honored because she was an integral part of helping trapped victims in Haiti last year. 

New York Times "DealBrook" Expansion Party

Where: The Four Seasons

Who Was There: Alexandra Lebenthal, Henry Blodger, Padma Lakshmi

Other Details: Party was in celebration of the NY Times' acquisition of DealBrook.
