"While it was not entirely clear whether [Vera Wang] was being serious or sarcastic — who exactly would be shocked these days to hear that business stinks? — it was indeed the case on Tuesday evening at a party for the 100th anniversary of Women’s Wear Daily, the fashion newspaper, that Ms. Wang was not drinking the fashion Kool-Aid. In fact, she appeared perplexed when a waiter in white jacket at the Cipriani event space on 42nd Street attempted, unsuccessfully, to steer her toward a cup of pink fruit punch poured from a water cooler that was inexplicably planted in the middle of the room and printed with the words Drink the WWD Kool-Aid.'"—Eric Wilson in today's Times.

THR is MIA!

Chic spent most of the morning attempting---in vain---to track down a hard copy of the recently-relaunched The Hollywood Reporter. According to its own website, THR issues will be sold at Barnes & Noble locations nationwide, but the two we checked in Manhattan didn't have it. A call to Richard Beckman's office was equally fruitless; their issues were stuck in traffic. Meanwhile, we get this invitation to subscribe ("It's time there is an entertainment magazine...). Janice, we could use some freelance copyediting work...call us!

The uptown dining scene has only been marginally improved by The Mark Restaurant by Jean-Georges. Where to go for a quick, easy meal on a weeknight (besides see-and-be-seen spots like Sant Ambroeus and Le Bilboquet)? Second Avenue, for starters. Quit complaining. San Matteo, a new slice of the storefrontage on Second Avenue at 90th Street, specializes in the sort of authentic Neapolitan pies that were previously found only downtown. The no-frills spot is filled out with a long bar, a few tables, and a brick oven. No liquor license yet, but enough authentic Italian fare at fair prices to keep you satisfied. Of course, you can always Bring Your Own Brunello. THE DETAILS: San Matteo Pizza and Espresso Bar, 1739 Second Avenue, (212) 426-6943.

"...You can be pretentious over the top, or you can be interested and entertained in a way that improves your quality of life."---Adam Rapoport, new Bon Ap EIC, on the attitudes commonly used to tackle one's subject by both food and fashion editors. Julia Moskin's "In the Kitchen With" piece in the Times is worth a read. (His mom literally wrote the book on pasta salad!)
