Will Woody Allen Escape the Upper East Side?

amFAR New York gala. Cipriani, 110 E. 42nd St., nr. Vanderbilt Ave., 6:30 p.m. An AIDS charity benefit so gala-riffic that Woody Allen is (scheduled to be) venturing south of 59th Street for something besides a Knicks game. Other expected guests include Beyoncé, Sharon Stone, Liza Minnelli, Michael Eisner, Richard Gere, and Rosie O’Donnell.

Joey McIntyre performance. Plumm, 26 W. 14th St., nr Fifth Ave., 11:30 p.m. On the guest list: Drew Lachey, Joey Lawrence, and 400 VH1 producers.

Dave Navarro after-party. Marquee, 289 Tenth Ave., nr. 27th St., sometime after his show with band The Panic Channel* and tourmates Supernova ends at Radio City. On the guest list: Paul Sevigny (yes, her brother), Travis T, Vegas, Tre, Freakie D, and Vegas again. With the exception of Paul, these names sound made-up — although we have been telling people for years that a Dave Navarro–Travis T–Vegas–Tre–Freakie D–Vegas supergroup would be the second-best thing to an original-lineup Jane’s Addiction reunion.

Hannibal Rising screening. AMC Loews Lincoln Center, 1998 Broadway, nr. 66th St., 6:15 p.m. Stars Gong Li and Gaspard Ulliel will be there along with director Peter Webber and 700-year-old Methuselah-producer Dino De Laurentis, who first worked on a film in 1940. Now he goes for lighter fare, like tired franchises about cannibalism.

*Correction: We initially referred to Dave Navarro’s band as 6767. It is actually The Panic Channel.
