Last night, Alan Cummings sang a Lady Gaga medley at the New Group gala, BetaBeat celebrated The Pitch Series at Soho House, Patti Smith read excerpts from her new book, Woolgathering, Martha Stewart attended the "First View" of the Whitney Biennial, Pat Kiernan hosted trivia night at The Bell House, and so much more! Last night's parties were all about celebrating new beginnings.
