Le Tout Manhattan

The wonderfully witty Village Voice columnist Michael Musto invited me to his book launch last week. He is wicked in print but very sweet in person and I was thrilled to be asked even though it was all winding down by the time Nick and I arrived after the show. The disco music was ear splitting so I only lasted ten minutes but we did have our pictures taken with MM. Sadly they haven't surfaced anywhere so I'll leave you with Mr. Musto's own review of the event:

"The Copacabana turned it out last night with food, booze, percussionists, and dancing Copa girls for the gala launch of my book Fork on the Left, Knife in the Back, promoted by Chip Duckett.
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Lisa Lampanelli co-hosted and were pure delight, both taking the stage to gab, followed by Lisa singing a spoof of "Show Off" from Drowsy Chaperone with lyrics about how she doesn't want to chew people out anymore. (I pray it's just a fantasy!)
Murray Hill, Bridget Everett, and Dirty Martini were all a wow. These three hilarious and sexy artists of extreme delight belong on Broadway immediately.
Jerry Springer showed up and people went nuts.
And Jackie Hoffman, Book of Mormon Tony winner Nikki M. James, the cast of Russian Dolls, Priscilla's Tony Sheldon and Nick Adams, Larry Storch, Rutanya Alda (Carol Anne in Mommie Dearest), Tony winner Daisy Eagan, the Glamazons, and a slew of downtown's finest -- everyone from Basil Twist to World of Wonder's Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey to Robin Byrd to ...
Oh, trust me, everyone was there who counts."
