• Mark Jacobs's Venetian Carnivale Masquerade. Gotham Hall, 1358 Broadway, nr. 36th St., 8 p.m. Invites to this bad boy are highly prized; when we called Marc Jacobs's offices for information, they put us on hold and then called someone else on the New York staff to make sure we weren't an impostor looking to crash the party. Worry not, Marc Jacobs public-relations staff, we do in fact work here … but we're also the leader of an entire underground army of party crashers, and you shall rue the day you put us on hold! Mwahahahaha!
• Notes on a Scandal screening. MoMA, 11 W. 53rd St., nr. Sixth Ave., 7:30 p.m.; dinner at Il Gattopardo, 33 W. 54th St., nr. Fifth Ave., 9 p.m. Stars Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett, and Bill Nighy will be among the guests. Granted, the movie hasn't opened yet, but so far the only "memorable quote" on its IMDB page is "She's the one I have waited for." Wow, it's like the next Caddyshack!
