Sometimes Benefits Are For Tolerance, Sometimes They’re Against It

Sanctuary for Families “Zero Tolerance” benefit. Pier 60, West Side Hwy. nr. 23rd St., 6:30 p.m. Ali Larter and Moby host; Grandmaster Flash D.J.’s. Ms. Larter is famous for wearing a whipped-cream bikini in Varsity Blues. A friend of ours actually persuaded his girlfriend to try this shortly after the movie came out, a fact reported to general adolescent enthusiasm; alas, the clamored-for details turned out to involve impractical prep time, sugar comas, and all-around non-sexiness.

amfAR Honoring With Pride event. Rainbow Room, 30 Rockefeller Plz., nr. Sixth Ave., 6 p.m. Liza Minnelli, Christine Quinn, Liz Smith, and Kenneth Cole are expected to be in attendance. New York needs more crazy children’s-book-style top-of-the-world wonders like the Rainbow Room. We suggest, for starters, a zeppelin-carried pool hall floating high above Avenue B.
