In Heaven, Leo Lerman Gets With Yul Brynner All the Time

Book party for The Grand Surprise: The Journals of Leo Lerman. The Osborne, 205 W. 57th St., nr. Seventh Ave., 6 p.m. Lerman was an urban sophisticate and onetime editor of Vanity Fair, whose journals reveal that he once passed up the opportunity to sleep with Yul Brynner; somehow this egregious mistake will not keep such notables as Steve Martin, Richard Meier, Sonny Mehta, S.I. Newhouse, and Gloria Vanderbilt from attending the party.

Museum of Jewish Heritage’s Heritage dinner. Edmond J. Safra Hall, 36 Battery Pl., nr. West Side Hwy., 6:30 p.m. Scheduled to attend: Eliot Spitzer, Bernard Spitzer, and Anne Spitzer — Governor Steamroller, the elder Mr. Steamroller, and the Mother of All Steamrollers. Missing: Bride of Steamroller.
