A Garden Party

“Madison Square Garden’s 50 Greatest Moments” premiere for the series finale. Theatre at Madison Square Garden, 4 Penn Plz., nr. 32nd St., 7 p.m. Expected: Willis Reed, Mark Messier, John Starks, Spike Lee, Walt “Clyde” Frazier. To put it in terms Clyde would understand, attendees will be cheering and premiering, appearing and rehearing (broadcasts of famous moments in Garden history). It is unlikely that there will be any racketeering and civil engineering taking place, but one never knows.

Breaking and Entering premiere. Paris Theater, 4 W. 58th St., nr. Fifth Ave., 7 p.m.; after-party at Hudson Hotel, 356 W. 58th St., nr. Eighth Ave., 9 p.m. Expected revelers: Jude Law, Juliette Binoche, Robin Wright Penn, Martin Freeman, Anthony Minghella. In the movie, Jude Law’s office gets broken into. If you want to break into Jude Law’s real-life office, well, you know where he’s going to be from about 6:30 till midnight tonight. Unfortunately for you, prospective thief, we doubt such a thing as “Jude Law’s real-life office” exists.
Winter Antiques Show opening-night party. Seventh Regiment Armory, 230 Park Ave., nr. 67th St., 5 p.m. Expected: Teresa Heinz, Leonard Lauder, Henry Kravis, Sid Bass, other rich people. How is it that all of these events for titans of industry start at five o’clock? We’re not exactly running multi-billion-dollar corporations here, and we can barely make it to the bar for the end of happy hour.
