Barbara Bush Stops By Cipriani En Route to Oblivion

Tonight’s boldfaced parties:

UNICEF Snowflake Ball. Cipriani, 110 E. 42nd St., nr. Vanderbilt Ave., 6:30 p.m. Al Roker, Téa Leoni, Barbara Bush the Younger, Jeff Zucker, and Oprah pal Gayle King are slated to attend. One of our friends once turned down the chance to hang out with Barbara Bush, thus depriving us of an opportunity to obnoxiously name-drop his secondhand story about hanging out with Barbara Bush whenever her name is mentioned. How selfish.

Cinema Society Gentlemen Prefer Blondes screening. Tribeca Grand, 2 Sixth Ave., nr. White St., 7:30 p.m. A host of socialite types including Amanda Hearst, Amy Sacco, and Ivanka Trump are scheduled to be present. There’s an after-party at Bloomingdale’s in Soho, so it’s like Night at the Museum plus music, alcohol, and handbags, and minus a murderous dinosaur skeleton.
Svedka’s Erotica Reading. Gramercy Park Hotel, 2 Lexington Ave., nr. 20th St., 8 p.m. Candace Bushnell and Jay McInerney will read and discuss erotica. At last, an opportunity to hear what Candace Bushnell thinks about sex!
