(NEW YORK) Another rainy night, another list of mandatory drop-ins for the social set. Starting uptown: The Feed event at J.McLaughlin, where Sharon Bush and Lauren Bush Lauren unveiled the dapper bears dressed by designers like Milly by Michelle Smith, Rachel Roy, and Vena Cava. "We asked ten designers, and they all said yes!" said Mrs. Bush. But no time for mingling—next up was the Solange Azagury-Partridge boutique on Madison, which was hosting an shopping event for New Yorkers for Children hosted by Julie Macklowe, Lydia Fenet et al. And then across-ish the street to Gucci, where the Society of MSKCC threw (another) cocktail to ramp up for the annual Spring Ball. That event's co-chairs Tory Burch, Jamie Tisch, and Caryn Zucker drew their friends—Yaz Hernandez, Dr. Lisa Airan, Jamee Gregory, and the like—for champagne, fruit-filled meringue moments, and crab cakes. (Or were the crab cakes at J.McLaughlin?)

And then it was downtown, where Alexandra Lebenthal et al were hanging out in a penthouse apartment on lower Sixth Avenue to celebrate Veuve Clicquot's new Rizzoli tome, The Seasons of Veuve Clicquot: A Social Cookbook for All Celebrations. (Inspired gift idea alert!) Stephane Gerschel, head of global communications for the brand, as well as a published author in his own right. The book quite literally provides you with ways to drink Veuve (and eat, while you're at it) for a full 365 days a year. (How will you tackle truffle season?) "No book tour," said Vanessa Kay, the brand's U.S. CEO. "This is it. But everything you're eating here is in the cookbook...and it all goes perfectly with Veuve Clicquot." Quel shock.
